Prosecutors In Ghislaine Maxwell Trial: Dismiss Perjury Case If Her Conviction Stands


On Monday, prosecutors in the trial of Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell joined her defense team to inform U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan that the federal government would dismiss two perjury charges against her if her conviction on five federal sex trafficking charges, which was determined on December 29, is permitted to stand.

“In the letter, prosecutors said that dismissing the perjury counts would be in line with victims’ ‘significant interests in bringing closure to this matter and avoiding the trauma of testifying again,’” NBC News reported.

The deadline set by Nathan for Maxwell’s lawyers to explain why her conviction should be overturned is January 19; prosecutors can respond to the defense team’s argument until February 2.
