Former federal prosecutor suggests convicted mucky madam Ghislaine Maxwell’s chances of getting an appeal will have “major hurdles” and will “have to meet a very high standard”
Last week, our world exclusive about a bathtub in Ghislaine Maxwell’s former home in Belgravia, London went viral and was subsequently picked up by the MailOnline also.
The image we shared clearly illustrated that the now convicted mucky madam and sex trafficker had told porky pies about the size of that particular room and its tub and now, yesterday Law & Crime News published an article suggesting that her chances of an appeal being heard are weakening also. Here is a once powerful player now incarcerated and deservedly on the ropes on and here is someone whom the walls are caving in on.
In a feature referencing the drug lord Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán’s conviction having been confirmed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Tuesday, managing editor Adam Klasfeld quoted a former federal sex trafficking prosecutor, Mitchell Epner, who remarked: “[Ghislaine Maxwell has] major hurdles [to obtaining a new trial.”
The counsel, who now works for Rottenberg Lipman Rich PC, cautioned:
“Having said that, there are some clear distinctions between her situation and that in the El Chapo case.”
“There’s a question whether it was inaccurately answered on purpose, meaning that the juror told a lie in order to try to get on the jury or accidentally. With El Chapo, the supposed lie was that the jurors were not paying attention to the instruction to avoid media reports about the El Chapo case. So that’s a very different situation.”
“So, for all of those reasons, I think that the El Chapo decision does not preclude Ghislaine Maxwell from being able to get an evidentiary hearing or a new trial. It simply shows that she’s going to have to meet a very high standard.”
Ghislaine Maxwell is due to be sentenced on 28th June and potentially also still faces a second trial also. She also has incurred costs likely in excess of £7 million to date and if she had half a brain, this wicked wastrel woman would do the sensible thing and try and cut a deal. Given she’s just as deviant as her late daddy, however, that seems still highly unlikely.
