NEW YORK—After five days of deliberation, on Dec. 29, a jury found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty on five of the six sex-trafficking charges brought against her in federal court.

Maxwell was found guilty on the following charges:

  • Count One, Conspiracy to Entice Minors to Travel to Engage in Illegal Sex Acts
  • Count Three, Conspiracy to Transport Minors With Intent to Engage in Criminal Sexual Activity
  • Count Four, Transportation of a Minor With Intent to Engage in Criminal Sexual Activity
  • Count Five, Conspiracy to Commit Sex Trafficking of Minors
  • Count Six, Sex Trafficking of Minors

The jury did not find her guilty on count two, Enticement of a Minor to Travel to Engage in Illegal Sex Acts.

Earlier in the morning at around 10:30 a.m., the jurors had requested transcripts of five witness testimonies. The jurors were off for two days for the Christmas holiday and were originally scheduled to have two days off for New Year’s, but Judge Alison Nathan requested they be available to work through them.

At 4:57 p.m., all parties were assembled in the courtroom, and Nathan told them, “We have our verdict.” She asked everyone to remain seated and calm and reminded them that there were federal marshals in the room in case they were needed. After the verdict was read, she thanked everyone in the room and told them they were adjourned.

The testimony of “Jane,” who testified how her abuse by Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein started when she was 14, was directly related to counts one through four.

Each of the nonconspiracy charges contained elements (up to four), and if the jury decided just one of them was not satisfied in the nonconspiracy charges, then Maxwell was not guilty of the entire charge.
