BREAKING: Ghislaine Maxwell appeals her 20 year sentence for conspiracy to commit sexual abuse
- Ghislaine Maxwell, 60, filed a notice of appeal in federal court on Thursday
- She is seeking to overturn her 20 year sentence in a minimum security prison
- Maxwell was sentenced late last month for conspiring with sex pest Jeffrey Epstein to exploit and sexually traffic young girls
British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell has officially filed paperwork to appeal her 20-year sentence for conspiring with sex pest Jeffrey Epstein to exploit and sexually abuse minors.
Maxwell, 60, filed the notice of appeal in New York federal court on Thursday, just a week after she was sentenced to serve time in a low security Danbury prison for sex trafficking young girls.
Judge Alison Nathan handed down the 240-month sentence followed by five years supervised release after calling Maxwell’s crimes ‘heinous and prefatory’ on June 28.
She also imposed a fine of $750,000, noting Maxwell had received a $10million bequest from Epstein after his death.
‘Ms. Maxwell worked with Epstein to select young victims who were vulnerable and played a pivotal role in facilitating sexual abuse,’ Judge Nathan said, making it clear the case called for a ‘very significant sentence’ that sent an ‘unmistakable message’ that such crimes would be punished.
