Ghislaine Maxwell sentencing provides ‘closure’, victims say

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Ghislaine Maxwell sentencing provides ‘closure’, victims say” – below is their description.

Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced on Tuesday to 20 years in prison in her New York sex-trafficking case for procuring teen girls for Jeffrey Epstein for him to abuse. Maxwell, 60, has maintained her innocence.

Some of the victims who testified made comments shortly after the sentencing.

Epstein, a convicted sex offender and financier whose elite associates once included Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton, was captured by federal authorities in July 2019, on sex-trafficking counts. He killed himself in a New York City federal jail just over one month after his arrest
