The sex trafficking trial for Ghislaine Maxwell continues for the eighth day, as prosecutors continue to make their case against Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged partner in crime. Prosecutors plan on resting their case by the end of the week.
The court started off late due to a late juror, local media reported. The first witness of the day was Janine Gill, director of human resources at Mar-a-Lago.
The next person on the stand was named “Shawn,” who dated Carolyn one of Ghislaine Maxwell’s alleged victims for around a few years when she was under 18. According to Shawn, he routinely drove Carolyn to Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida in the early 2000s.
The next witness was Nicole Hesse, who worked for Jeffrey Epstein for about a year in the early 2000s, testified about taking phone messages at his mansion when he wasn’t there. Hesse claims Ghislaine Maxwell instructed her on where to “jot down the messages.”
After Hesse’s testimony, Judge Alison Nathan called a break for lunch.
