Perjury Pending?

Now she’s been denied a retrial after her conviction for sex trafficking, when will U.S. prosecutors announce whether they’ll definitely now drop Ghislaine Maxwell’s second trial for perjury?

“Our family is profoundly shocked and troubled by the denial of a retrial for our sister, Ghislaine Maxwell” arrogantly began a statement from the Maxwell family issued via Twitter on Thursday following Judge Alison J. Nathan’s decision that ‘Juror 50’ [AKA ‘Scotty David’] was “not impliedly or inferably biased.”


In her opinion and order on 4th April, Judge Nathan added that the juror “testified credibly and truthfully at the post-trial hearing… harbored no bias towards the defendant [Maxwell]” and “served as a fair and impartial juror.”


Responding, the Maxwell family declared they’d be seeking another retrial and raged: “The court’s ruling in this matter is as tainted as the original verdict is unsafe” and added:


“The court – having pre-determined the very narrow parameters of its own post-trial inquiry of Juror 50 about the untruthful answers he provided in the pre-trial juror questionnaire and, further, at the start of that inquiry approved his immunity from prosecution for perjury – effectively ensured the loading of the dice.”


“Relying on a contentious interpretation of “controlling law” the court then required 40 pages to justify its decision to deny the defence’s motion for a retrial stating that ‘…the limits on the nature of the post-trial inquiry serve the important interest in the finality of judgments,’ rather than the upholding of the paramount interests of justice.”


“The fact remains that due to Juror 50’s failure to disclose his own alleged sexual abuse as a child in the pre-trial questionnaire, the Defence was denied the opportunity to question him on these matters at that time or during the recent hearing.”


“This strong issue – the impartial consideration of which is of critical importance in the interests of all Defendants – among many other issues pre-, in- and post-trial, will be presented to the Court of Appeal and, like her legal team, our family is optimistic about Ghislaine’s success on appeal.”


Described later in The List as a family that was “sounding off,” here again we see evidence that both Jeffrey Epstein’s lover turned recruiter of minors and her siblings fail to accept that they are deservedly beat and also that they share the same arrogance as their pension pot plundering papa.


Aside now from sentencing on 28th June – where the mucky madam could get upto 65 years and thus die in the clink – it must be remembered that since she isn’t getting a retrial, Scott Borgerson’s estranged wife will now no longer likely face a second trial for perjury.


Shared via the mocking ‘REALGhizzy’ @MaxPhacts account on Twitter – whose handle is amusingly captioned: “Yes, it’s the REAL me. I’ve just rigged the underwire of my bra and some tin foil to a burner phone so I can add MY side. #Satire” – the government’s position in January was stated as:


“In the event the defendant’s post-trial motions are denied, the government is prepared to dismiss, the government is prepared to dismiss the severed perjury counts at the time of sentencing, in light of the victims’ significant interests in bringing closure to this matter and the trauma of testifying again.”


Of this ‘REALGhizzy’ remarked: “Hmmm? Now that my new trial has been denied, I am going back over fine print. When will we hear if the perjury charges will be dropped? Inquiring, nervous, and shocked minds want to know?”


REALGhizzy’s account regularly mocks the incarcerated mucky madam’s antics.
Scotty David
The juror who goes by the name of ‘Scotty David’ most certainly caused havoc through his inattention to the questions he was asked prior to becoming involved in the trial in December last. However, Judge Alison J. Nathan determined that his did not affect his ability to be fair and just.

Responding to last week’s BBC ‘House of Maxwell’s’ failure to examine other criminal investigations connected to Prince Andrew’s now incarcerated and convicted criminal and supposed lover, Matthew Steeples again asked why the Metropolitan Police never proceeded with a 1994 investigation where they surveilled the then South Kensington home of Ghislaine Maxwell. At their time, their officers used neighbouring residences to watch the comings and goings of women presumed to be prostitutes and their management by the ‘lady of that house.’

  1. I agree with Judge Nathan despite the crusty thoughts offered by defense attys , who live in an aggressive state of technicalities and peculiar witnesses. Im guessing by now her supporters are fueled by fury and ingrown exhausted they all must secretly be… she has further ruined the lives of already teflon coated nonentities ..the more time that passes the less interested the general public will be in Ghislaine…Im pretty sure I will remain interested because I see her as a timeless parable. The lessons will continue through her squirming compadres that have attempted to meander away without catching her eye as they depart. The appeal promises to be warmed over complaints and arrogant demands ..but I will be paying attention as I have all along …Im waiting for her sentencing when the draw bridge goes up ..what will we hear
    and from whom ??
