Jury signals verdict not near at Ghislaine Maxwell trial


Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — A jury in the sex trafficking trial of Ghislaine Maxwell has completed three full days of deliberations without a sign that a verdict is near. On Monday, the jury requested multi-colored sticky notes, a white board and some trial transcripts. They also asked for the definition of enticement and a question pertaining to the law. The deliberations followed a holiday weekend break after two full days of talks last week. The British socialite is charged with grooming teenagers as young as 14 to be sexually assaulted by financier Jeffrey Epstein. Maxwell’s lawyers say she’s a scapegoat after Epstein killed himself in 2019 while awaiting a sex trafficking trial.
