Ghislaine Maxwell to be sentenced in June sex trafficking case

| Business News Today | Fox News


Ghislaine Maxwell is expected to be sentenced in her sex trafficking case at the end of June, a federal judge announced Friday.

Judge Alison Nathan wrote in a letter Friday that the convicted sex trafficker will be sentenced in Manhattan federal court on June 28 at 11 a.m.

Maxwell faces a maximum of 65 years in prison after being found guilty of five counts, including sex trafficking of a minor, during her trial in December.

His lawyers are pushing Judge Nathan to give him a new trial after a juror in the trial revealed in a number of media interviews that he was a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

The juror, identified as Scotty David, told Reuters he shared his story with his fellow jurors – and convinced them they should convict Maxwell.

It is unclear if he revealed his story during jury selection.
