Matthew Steeples explains what’s next for convicted mucky madam Ghislaine Maxwell as she faces a second trial and sentencing
All’s looking far from rosy in ‘Maxwell House’ and though the siblings of the now convicted criminal sex offender Ghislaine Maxwell have been using their @RealGhislaine Twitter account to bleat about how her conviction shows “the deep flaws in the US justice system,” they’ve unsurprisingly garnered little sympathy.
Indicative of a collection of cretins with exactly the same kind of arrogance as their late pension pot plundering papa, the Maxwell family decision to go down the route of attacking what they call “deep flaws” rather than accepting the verdict that proves their sister to be a monster just like daddy is perhaps to be expected. It, however, also is deeply flawed and it will not help them as they work towards whatever comes next.
Elsewhere, this morning, I was asked by my rising star actor and friend Haaz Sleiman – best known to date for his roles in The Visitor, NCIS, CSI: Miami, ER, Jack Ryan and Killing Jesus – about whether Ghislaine Maxwell will name other names in this case.
Answering the many other questions I’ve received in this regard also, in short my reply should assist all those with answers on the topic of “what’s next” in this case. It read:
“I doubt she will name anyone yet. She will go through the process of being analysed pre-sentencing – that will take a number of weeks. She is planning an appeal – that will take months. And then there is her second trial (lying under oath) – date to be set.”
“So, for now, given her arrogance and given that her lawyers want this to run and run given they have already made £7 million from her (she is to them a great cash cow), don’t expect that quite yet. It may come, but remember that her father once said: ‘I have a beautiful daughter and she’s just like me.’ I would replace ‘beautiful’ with ‘deviant.’”
I should have also added: “And that’s before we even get to the issue of ‘Randy’ Prince Andrew and what went on on that fateful night of Sloppy Giuseppes at Pizza Express (Woking Branch).”
Clearly the earlier interest in her activities was ‘sat on’ by embedded establishment figures acting actually thereby perfectly malfeasantly. Those [that] same figure(s) seemed to perform identically when considering an aspirant Admiral handling clearly trafficked (now proven criminally) goods as perfectly OK: Save us – all of this nonsense is perfectly wrong in society.
The poor woman is a scapegoat for other peoples crimes. The girls were clearly of age, accepted money and were giving a massage to a man with a bad back. I don’t therefore see how you can describe somebody in such terms.
We always seem to get at least one moron seeking a little attention. If it’s not, Rolf is Innocent, find Madeline, find her now, or Jimmy Saville was a misunderstood guy, now we have George P.
Maxwell is not a scape goat, she coaxed under age girls to massage Epstein’s bad back, as you put it. She recruited the girls with lies and promises, when they were particularly vulnerable. Epstein was a Paedophile, and she new it. Yes there are clearly other big names involved in the whole affair, but that doesn’t change Maxwell’s guilt, and now she has to pay. She also will be tried at a later date for two counts of purjury, both of which carry a maximum sentence of five years each.
I would say she is looking at quite a hefty sentence, and I hope she does talk to bring down some of the big names involved.
George .why are you so unkindly disposed to young girls? You sound frightening…and determined to stay that way. Have you ever been a fifteen year old girl with bad people taking advantage of your innocence and trying to make you dirty ?
I think George is being ironic, here….Catch up, please ..
We are aware of that, but I don’t think George or anybody else should be trying to be humorous and ironic over a subject like this, so maybe you should catch up please.
A massage is a massage, next time you are lying down on a table face down I suggest you ask them for ID otherwise you may face life in prison
The difference here George is, he wouldn’t have been lying face down.
That’s me being ironic.
Dodge how is 16 and 17 years old a paedophile. Forgive me for saying but weren’t these girls working jobs at golf clubs and therefore what children have employment ?
Because the age of consent where it happened was 18 years old.
Having said that, if you had a daughter 16 or 17, would you be happy for an old man to be using them in this way??
dodge of course I wouldn’t but that is the point. What is moral and what is legal are two different things. There are plenty of things about day to day life one finds ugly but that doesn’t imply jailing a woman for life for supposed crimes on heresay evidence
George, It wasn’t legal, they were under age, as explained.
Also she hasn’t been sentenced to anything yet.
No, it wasn’t heresay evidence, I don’t think her accusers and all the others that gave evidence were lying, unless you are a conspiracy theroist?
New concern is the juror who has spoken out about his own abuse. Announcing that he helped the others fathom the girls behavior, makes me nervous about a retrial. I am trying to keep my sense of humor but get bogged down. Im shopping around for another scandal to get my head straight. and hoping for no retrial .
I don’t think a retrial is a problem Jane, if it does go that way, she could probably get extra porridge added on.
Jane there will be a retrial as this was undoubtedly an unsafe conviction. There is no way a juror with such experiences didn’t sway the verdict
Big question is what’s gonna happen with James Stunt in March @ Matthew Steeples
The case of James Stunt, whom I have not had any contact with in nearly 1.5 years, has nothing to do with the case of Ghislaine Maxwell whatsoever. That is the only answer I shall give you in that regard. I have no involvement with him, his companies or his case, but I will misquote Donald Trump and say: “I wish him well.”
Come on George, what the hell has that got to do with Maxwell’s case, more irony?
I must admit I am rather enjoying the ITV programme tonight Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile. (Tue 18). Oh blimey Ian Maxwell is on! I had some involvement with a court case with him and his brother Kevin. A lot of Lady Victoria Hervey. Such a beauty Ghislaine who had everything life could offer and who many aspire to have could have gone down such a dark path. So sad.
