Jeffrey Epstein ‘madam’ Ghislaine Maxwell ‘groomed underage victim in London for paedo to abuse’

JEFFREY Epstein's alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell groomed underage victim in London for the paedo financier to abuse, it was claimed today.

The British socialite and heiress was today arrested by the FBI on child sex abuse charges linked to Jeffrey Epstein.

She was arrested in Bedford, New Hampshire on charges she conspired with Epstein to sexually abuse minors and is expected to appear in a federal court later today, according to two sources talking to News 4 New York.

And court documents, it was claimed the 58-year-old had groomed an under age victim in London for Epstein.

It was alleged she befriended the victim between 1994 and 1995 when she knew the person was under 18.

In Maxwell's indictment sheet, it was claimed she arranged for "multiple interactions" between the victim and Epstein - encouraging them to "massage" the financier.

It added: "(She knew) that Epstein would engage in sex acts with minor victim 3 during those massages."

The charges also said that Maxwell knew that Epstein had then sexually assaulted the minor.

It is unclear if the victim was a British citizen.

Virginia Roberts has previously alleged that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew in London, however the indictment about the victim in the capital does not refer to her.

The US prosecution case does not involve Prince Andrew, who has furthermore denied the claims of Ms Roberts.

The place of her arrest is understood to be close to the home of her alleged boyfriend Scott Borgerson.

Maxwell is accused of luring children into the clutches of former boyfriend Epstein and even taking part in some of the abuse – claims she strongly denies.

Maxwell will now face charges of conspiracy to entice and transport minors to engage in illegal sex acts as well as perjury and transporting minors with the intent to engage in criminal activity.

Epstein, a registered sex offender, was arrested last summer on new federal charges of exploiting dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida in the early 2000s. 

He attempted suicide in custody in late July, and then died after another suicide attempt in early August.

Two of the guards tasked with monitoring Epstein now face federal charges for not properly supervising him before his death.

One day before his suicide, a federal appeals court released the transcript of a 2016 deposition in which Epstein repeatedly refused to say whether Maxwell had procured young girls for him.

Spokespeople for the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan declined to comment on Maxwell's arrest today.
