The family of Jeffrey Epstein’s suspected associate Ghislaine Maxwell is allegedly preparing to go to great lengths to secure her freedom months ahead of her trial on sex trafficking charges, with her legal team repeatedly lamenting the extremely “onerous” conditions their defendant is kept in.
Jeffrey Epstein’s suspected “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell is set to pledge $30 million in bail money as she strives to secure her freedom before the Christmas holidays, The Daily Telegraph reported, saying her lawyers will try to settle the matter soon.
The media outlet cited the British socialite’s friends as blasting the US authorities for “demonising” her for the sake of covering up their “incompetence and embarrassment” over the death of her former partner Jeffrey Epstein. He was found dead in his prison cell after being slapped with new child sex trafficking charges.
The report in The Telegraph appears to confirm for the first time that Maxwell is indeed married to tech entrepreneur Scott Borgerson, 44, who is purportedly ready to splash out a hefty $25 million as security which the couple would lose if the socialite attempts to flee.
According to Maxwell’s friends, Borgerson (prosecutors mentioned in July that Maxwell was married without giving any details about who her Mr Right was) is devastated that she is still in custody, amid reports of “uniquely onerous conditions” there.
