Ghislaine Maxwell's prosecutors showed various key pieces of evidence to jurors for the first time during the trial on December 3. This included a massage table and 'Twin Torpedo' sex toy seized from Epstein's sprawling home in the early 2000s. Former Palm Beach Police officer Gregory Parkinson and his team had carried out the raid at the pedophile's sex den in October 2005. He was present in court for the trial on Friday where he was quizzed about the search warrant he executed back then. Maxwell didn't visibly react to his presence or while watching him re-examine the evidence.

For the uninitiated, Maxwell is charged with six counts on the accounts of four accusers including one count of enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts. She also faces one count of transportation of a minor with intent to engage in illegal sex acts, one count of sex trafficking of a minor, and three counts of conspiracy related to the other counts, according to New York Times. She was also charged with two counts of perjury following her arrest in July 2020 for which she will be tried separately. If convicted, Maxwell could be facing a maximum of 80 years in prison.

What is Epstein's Twin Torpedo sex toy? 

Palm Beach Police Seargeant Michael Dawson was present in court as well along with Parkinson to answer questions regarding the evidence presented to jurors. Coming the the dark-green collapsible massage table, Parkinson told federal prosecutor Maurene Comey that it indeed was the one they seized from Epstein's home on October 20, 2005, while executing a search warrant along with other officers. "It's from the second floor south bathroom, where the shower was," he said, according to the New York Post. Parkinson recognized it from the its appearance as well as by the property number and the sticker that said it was made in Vista, California.

Dawson took the stand after Parkinson to detail what they were specifically looking for during the search op. "We were looking for massage tables. We were looking for massage oils. We were looking for sex toys," he said. Prosecutors then published a photo of a brown cardboard box containing a pair of sex toys called "Twin Torpedo" - a bullet vibrator for men - and the image was also shown to the jurors. Dawson testified those were discovered in a closet on Epstein's property. Earlier this week an accuser only identified as "Jane" testified that Epstein used vibrators on her when she was 14 in the presence of Maxwell. The victim said Epstein "like to use vibrators that were different sizes; and even, like, those back massagers that were, you know, painful." She told prosecutor Alison Moe, "He liked very hard, like rubbing his shoulders, really hard, and like twisting his nipples hard, and rubbing his feet hard."
