Financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein died by suicide while incarcerated in August of 2019, but that's not the end of the story. Epstein's confidant and alleged former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, is now facing federal charges for sex trafficking. Maxwell is a British citizen and former socialite who stands accused of assisting Epstein in multiple instances of exploiting and abusing underage girls over nearly a decade. On this episode of Passing Judgment, Jessica gives a summary of the beginning of the trial, for which opening arguments are expected today to take place. This podcast is powered by Pinecast.
