Prosecutors Want Ghislaine Maxwell To Serve 30-55 Years Behind Bars
6 months ago Prince Andrew was putting his supposedly non-working royal sweat glands to the test when his gal pal Ghislaine Maxwell became the first person convicted on 5 federal sex trafficking charges to have sat on THE THRONE. But thanks to mummy’s deep pockets by way of the British taxpayer, Kevin Spacey was able to leapfrog over his back to get in line to be the second. Unfortunately for Ghislaine, unlike Andrew, whose very expensive lucky break meant he got to do the alleged crime without having to do the time, Ghislaine is looking at a possible 30-55 years of sitting on the porcelain throne she can see from her cot at her upcoming sentencing trial scheduled to begin on June 28. But don’t feel too badly for her. What Ghislaine’s throne lacks in upholstered opulence, it more than makes up for in security. The guards at Buckingham Palace may have let the riff-raff slip onto THE QUEEN’s throne, but nothing but dookie will be slipping into Ghislaine’s.
Ghislaine, of course, would prefer a lighter sentence and argues that she’s being unfairly punished for her deceased co-conspirator Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes. NBC News reports:
Federal prosecutors say convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell should be sentenced to a minimum of 30 years and up to 55 years for her “instrumental role in the horrific sexual abuse of multiple young teenage girls,” according to a sentencing memorandum.
In the memorandum filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, prosecutors wrote Maxwell, a British socialite, enjoyed “a life of extraordinary luxury and privilege” while engaging in a “disturbing agreement” with financier Jeffrey Epstein.
“Instead of showing even a hint of acceptance of responsibility, the defendant makes a desperate attempt to cast blame wherever else she can,” prosecutors said in the sentencing memo.
Maxwell’s attempts to “cast aspersions on the Government for prosecuting her, and her claim that she is being held responsible for Epstein’s crimes, are both absurd and offensive,” prosecutors added.
Wow, I did not know the government was out to get her like that. Sad if true, but it’s like Vanessa Hudgens says, like, yeah, people are gonna want to put you away for the rest of your natural-born life. Which is terrible. But, like, inevitable? Still, Ghislaine argued that “it would be a travesty of justice for her to face a sentence that would have been appropriate for Epstein.” Ghislaine thinks about 6 years should do it.
Last week, they filed a sentencing memorandum in which they argued for a sentence below the 20 years recommended by the probation department.
In another document, Maxwell’s attorneys claim the correct sentencing guidelines is between 51 and 63 months, or less than six years.
In addition to wanting the judge to throw the book at her, the prosecution would also like the judge to hit her with the maximum fine of $750,000 while they’re at it. But as Ghislaine argues, boo-hoo, she’s poor now.
In the memo, prosecutors wrote that Maxwell recently reported that she has almost no assets despite telling the court in bail applications that she had $22 million.
$22 million dollars might seem like a lot to you and me, but have you seen the prices they are charging for toilet chardonnay these days? Inflation is no joke!
