Ghislaine Maxwell constantly took pics of topless girls by pools and kept them in her desk album, says witness
She had a high-tech camera and the half-nude shots were stored in an album, which she kept on her desk
An unnamed witness in federal court papers unsealed on Saturday, November 21, claimed that Jeffrey Epstein's right-hand woman Ghislaine Maxwell “constantly” snapped photos of topless girls by swimming pools. According to this witness — identified as 'Jane Doe 1' in court papers — she had a high-tech camera, and the half-nude shots were stored in an album, which she kept on her desk.
The 58-year-old British socialite is currently locked up in a New York jail on charges that she groomed girls for Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a New York jail in August last year. Maxwell has denied all accusations. As per reports, a plea deal between public prosecutors and Jeffrey Epstein has given immunity to Ghislaine Maxwell. It has been said that the prosecutors from the Southern District of Florida (SDFL) failed to notice that the plea deal was made not only to protect Epstein’s four female associates in 2007 but also to keep the British socialite safe. They, however, later confessed to understand it.
The blunder was in a report by the Department of Justice's internal watchdog the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR). Epstein’s lawyers reportedly persuaded the prosecutors to write down the documents in loose language, which read “The United States agrees that it will not institute any criminal charges against any potential co-conspirators of Epstein, including but not limited to (the four women)”.
Those four women were Nadia Marcinkova, an alleged sex slave, Sarah Kellen, who was allegedly one of his main recruiters, Lesley Groff, who is said to have been his New York-based assistant, and Adriana Ross, one of his associates. The report has also disclosed that due to the badly-worded document, Epstein was behind bars just for 15 months in 2007 despite the FBI identifying dozens of potential victims.
The OPR report noted that “It was clear Epstein did not want the contents of his computers disclosed. Nothing in the available record reveals that the USAO (prosecution) benefited from abandoning the pursuit of this evidence when they did. Instead, the USAO agreed to postpone and ultimately to abandon its efforts to obtain evidence that could have significantly changed Acosta's (Alex, US Attorney who signed off on Epstein's agreement) decision to resolve the federal investigation with a state guilty plea or led to additional significant federal charges.”
It further said, "by agreeing to postpone the litigation, the USAO gave away leverage that might have caused the defense to come to an agreement much earlier and on terms more favorable to the government. The USAO ultimately agreed to a term in the (plea deal) that permanently ended the government's ability to obtain possible evidence of significant crimes and did so with apparently little serious consideration of the potential cost.”
Earlier in October, an ex-teen beauty queen claimed that she informed the FBI that Maxwell had been searching for “half-naked” young girls. Molly Skye Brown said that she had an encounter with Maxwell when she was just 14. “Maxwell tried to recruit me. I was 14, I was starting to get more into modeling, acting, singing and pageants with the expectation of making some scholarship money or grant money to further my education.”
She further said, “She introduced herself, said she was a modeling scout and asked whether I do any modeling. I said I did. She said: ‘Well, you have the look, how old are you?’ I told her my age and she said: ‘Oh my God, you look so much older, you could easily pass for 18’,” adding, “She was just a predator prowling the streets I have no doubt.”
