Jeffrey Epstein Confidant About Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested
Ghislaine Maxwell, ex-girlfriend and confidant of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, has been arrested on charges of involvement in his criminal activities.
NBC News reports this based on anonymous sources within the judiciary.
Maxwell, the daughter of media tycoon Robert Maxwell and ex-girlfriend of financier and multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein, is said to have been arrested in New Hampshire by the FBI.
The US news channel reports from two high-ranking sources within the justice system. She is suspected of involvement in Epstein’s sex crimes.
Epstein was arrested last year on suspicion of the abuse of numerous women on his private island in the Caribbean. He committed suicide in his cell in August, pending trial.
He was previously convicted of child abuse in Florida.
Maxwell will be brought forward later today, according to NBC. An FBI spokesman and the prosecutor do not want to respond.
