'Keep Ghislaine Maxwell alive': Internet wants Epstein's ex closely watched in prison so she doesn't meet his fate
Social media has been calling for Ghislaine Maxwell to be kept on strict suicide watch so that she does not attempt suicide in prison like her ex-boyfriend, Jeffrey Epstein. The 58-year-old was arrested by the FBI and was charged with helping Epstein with sex trafficking of underage women. It has been reported that Maxwell is all set to appear in court next week in Manhattan.
She is likely facing charges of grooming the underage girls between the years 1994 and 1997 via asking about their lives, families, schools and taking them to the movies or shopping, reports The Sun.
Social media is demanding that this chance of justice for Epstein's victims should not be thwarted which could happen if Ghislaine kills herself as Epstein did. Many are highlighting the importance of keeping Ghislaine alive especially since victims now have the chance to hold her responsible for her alleged role in grooming and sexually abusing several women.
Actor Steven Pasquale took to Twitter to share, "Ghislaine Maxwell has been arrested. Now let’s keep her a** alive because she knows EVERYTHING." Corey Feldman also commented, "Better do a sworn video testimonial on her fast before she shows up dead too!"
"Let's do our best to keep her alive eh?!" Feldman added. A campaigner against violence against women said, "It's about time. Now keep her alive long enough to testify.”
"I hope they keep Ghislaine Maxwell alive, and that she takes EVERYONE down with her. I don’t care if it’s Trump, Clinton, Prince Andrew, or anyone I didn’t expect that I like or admire. I don’t care if it’s Dems, GOP, independents. ALL CHILD RAPISTS BELONG IN PRISON," one person shared.
Ghislaine could be facing a potential life sentence should she be found guilty, the co-founder of Sentencing Stats, LLC, Mark Allenbaugh. Up until being arrested yesterday, Ghislaine had remained out of sight ever since the arrest of Epstein last year.
Ghislaine was arrested in Bradford, New Hampshire, and was then seen in a video conference along with her attorney in Manhattan. According to the indictment by federal prosecutors in NY, she has been charged with four counts linked to procuring and luring minors for illegal sex acts and two counts of perjury, according to the indictment by federal prosecutors in New York.
At a press briefing, Manhattan US Attorney Audrey Strauss said, "Maxwell was among Epstein’s closest associates and helped him exploit girls who were as young as 14 years old."
"Maxwell played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify, befriend, and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself," Strauss added.
Ghislaine has denied any wrongdoing in the crimes. We had earlier reported that the arrest of Ghislaine led to hashtags like '#MaxwellDidntKillHerself' and '#ClintonBodyCount' started trending on Twitter. While the bizarre hashtags suggested that Maxwell had already taken her own life, nothing like that had happened.
The Twitter users who made the hashtags viral claimed that they were getting a headstart on the phrases because they were pretty sure that Maxwell would die, just like Epstein.
