Reportedly groomed her for Jeffrey Epstein
Federal authorities have charged Ghislaine Maxwell with sex trafficking of a 14-year-old girl.
At the time of this reporting, Maxwell has been jailed nearly nine months on allegations that she helped procure and groom underage victims for late accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
According to the New York Times, the new indictment accuses Maxwell of paying a purported Epstein victim.
Maxwell was charged Monday for the first time with sex trafficking of a minor, according to the report, as federal prosecutors accused her of grooming the 14-year-old girl to engage with sex acts with Epstein.
The teen, identified as Minor Victim-4, was paid “hundreds of dollars in cash” in exchange for the sexual favors.
