Ghislaine Maxwell is secretly married and is refusing to reveal her spouse’s name. At the accused British socialite’s hearing on Tuesday prosecutors also accused her of purposely hiding the extent of her wealth.
Assistant US Attorney Alison Moe told Manhattan federal Judge Alison Nathan during a video conference, “In addition to failing to describe in any way the absence of proposed co-signers of a bond, the defendant also makes no mention whatsoever about the financial circumstances or assets of her spouse whose identity she declined to provide to Pretrial Services.
He added, “There’s no information about who will be co-signing this bond or their assets, and no details whatsoever.”
Although Maxwell’s lawyers asked for her to be let out on a $5 million bond, prosecutors convinced the judge that 58-year-old Ghislaine Maxwell poses an “extreme” flight risk if let out on bail.
According to the claims she used a fake identity to purchase her New Hampshire hideout, lied about her overall wealth, and hid a year in hiding from authorities.
Judge Nathan denied setting bail for Jeffrey Epstein’s one-time lover, shipping her back to the Metropolitan Detention Center. Her trial is set for next July.
Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested on July 2. Her charges included recruiting and grooming young women to be sexually abused by both her and Jeffrey Epstein.
