Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Attorney for Alleged Epstein Victims Comments on Ghislaine Maxwell Trial Opening Statements” – below is their description.

Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial kicked off with two starkly different narratives about who she is and why she has been charged with sex trafficking.

Maxwell, 59, “is a convenient stand-in” for the failure to prosecute Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes, defense attorney Bobbi Sternheim told jurors in a lower Manhattan courtroom Monday.

But prosecutor Lara Pomerantz said Maxwell and Epstein, her ex-boyfriend and employer, were “partners in crime” and the British socialite played a “central role” in luring girls as young as 14 into the financier’s world, where they were subject to sexual abuse. “Make no mistake: She knew exactly what Epstein was going to do to those children when she sent them inside those massage rooms,” Pomerantz said.
