GHISLAINE Maxwell groomed young women to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein by taking them to the movies and on shopping sprees, lawyers alleged on Thursday after her arrest.
The British heiress lured girls as young as 14 years old to a plethora of Jeffrey Epstein's residences, including his mansion in New York City and his Florida estate, according to a federal indictment.
The 58-year-old socialite even lured the young women to her home in London, according to the indictment.
"In particular, from at least or about 1994, up to and including at least in or about 1997, Maxwell assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein's abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 18," the indictment says.
Maxwell, Epstein's confidante, was arrested in New Hampshire on Thursday morning on charges of conspiring with the financier to sexually abuse minors.
She was reportedly arrested near the Bedford home of her alleged boyfriend Scott Borgerson, and will face a judge this afternoon.
