R99 Not a lawyer but from how I understood it, enticement is about offering something to the victim to lure them e.g. gifts, a model job, education. Conspiracy is agreeing to someone else doing it and being in on it.

In Jane's case, she was offered money and contacts to get acting jobs, but I'm guessing that the jury didn't see evidence of Ghislaine herself doing it? I read Virginia's memoir and she says that right after Jeffrey fucked her and Jane, they flew to a production studio in LA where they had a meeting with Jane's agent and a producer for the soap she went on to act in for over 10 years. So that would be an example of how Epstein enticed Jane to travel for sex.

Nobody is going to hurt her in prison. Susan Smith sent her own two precious babies to their deaths in a purposefully submerged car. She's done fine in prison. And she's in a state prison. She was even caught fucking one of the male guards.

Federal prisons are a great deal different from state prisons. Federal prisons are more like college dorms. The closest Federal prison to me doesn't even have a wall or fence around it. Just some very tall hedges.

Maxwell didn't kill anyone or even physically mistreat anyone, and (as far as we know) neither did Epstein or any of the men they hooked teenage girls up with. From what I've read I get the feeling they wooed these girls and probably treated them quite well to get them to submit. They knew what they were doing. It doesn't appear any of these men were the types who were into violently raping females. Clearly that doesn't excuse what they ultimately did, but the way they did things will have a lot to do with the kind of sentence she receives. She's rich and she'll do just fine in prison. Considering the facts of the case I wouldn't be surprised if she receives a sentence that will allow her to get out one day with plenty of life left to live.

But I don't agree that she won't sing if she knows something that will get her a lighter sentence. I believe at some point she'll sing like a canary.

by Anonymousreply 121December 30, 2021 1:27 PM

R116, there are myriad things you're plain wrong about:

"Maxwell didn't ... physically mistreat anyone..." Yes, she did. She participated in having sex with a couple of these underage victims. That's physical mistreatment as defined by law.

"and (as far as we know) neither did Epstein or any of the men they hooked teenage girls up with." They had sex with underage girls, which, again, is a crime. It's rape, in fact, when they're underage.

"From what I've read I get the feeling they wooed these girls and probably treated them quite well..." Those are still serious crimes.

"It doesn't appear any of these men were the types who were into violently raping females. " It doesn't have to be "violent rape" to be a crime.

"Clearly that doesn't excuse what they ultimately did..." Yet that's exactly what you're doing--you're pooh-poohing and excusing all these crimes.

"She's rich and she'll do just fine in prison." Who thrives in prison?

"Considering the facts of the case I wouldn't be surprised if she receives a sentence that will allow her to get out one day with plenty of life left to live." She'll be in for at least 20 years minimum, which will make her 80. That's plenty of life left to live?

"From what I've read I get the feeling they wooed these girls and probably treated them quite well to get them to submit." That's ignoring the fact that luring and enticement of minors to traffic them for sex are both crimes.

There is no distinction in the eyes of the law between having sex with an 8-year-old or having sex with a 14-year-old. Sex with any underage person is rape in the eyes of the law. No distinction needs to be drawn.

He was accused by one of the victims, and he proceeded to go on TV and trash her in the name of what, exactly? Analysis of the trial? It's outrageous.

I think she found someone just like her screwed up father in Epstein. She worshipped JE - you can especially tell in the photos - and would do anything for him, blindly. But also seems like a mutually beneficial situation as well. He used her for social connections, etc. He was paying her a LOT of money. I wonder if she thought everyone got paid enough that this would never come back to her? She is indeed comes off as predatory and arrogant to the end.

Was he good at sex? I would say no, based on what I've heard the victims say happened. Usually required them to massage him - feet, body, before finishing him off. BJs which Ghislaine told 'Kate' was 'a lot of work for her' and that was why she wanted to recruit other women. Sometimes penetration. He would do things like pull them on his lap and masturbate. He used sex toys on them and got pleasure out of it being 'painful' - 'Jane' says that he used back massagers as a sex toy on her which certainly would be painful.

All in all, it was sex that was about his pleasure with little to no concern for theirs, which I wouldn't call 'good sex'. They said that there was no emotional attachment - he encouraged them to have other boyfriends and he was fine with them using drugs as long as it wasn't on his planes or at his places. Virginia wrote in her memoir that she kept popping Xanax to get through the sex. 'Carolyn' said that she used drugs and alcohol similarly to black it out.

I'm not sure why you're saying it's bonkers, r190. Giuffre, on the basis of the same agreement, dropped all her claims against Dershowitz.

From your article, according to a former federal prosecutor:

[quote]“This is an extraordinarily broad release that, on its face, releases any claims that Ms. Giuffre Roberts has against anyone that she might have been able to sue as a result of sexual abuse by Epstein,” noted Epner, who is now of counsel with the firm Rottenberg Lipman Rich PC. “It releases all claims she ‘ever had or now ha[s] for, upon, or by reason of any matter … (whether known or unknown) from the beginning of the world to the day of this release.’”

[quote]“So, if Prince Andrew had run Virginia Giuffre Roberts over in a hit-and-run, that would be released too,” Epner added.

[quote]This news comes as the latest hearing in the case between Ms Giuffre and the Duke of York was called a “horrible day” for the duke by both legal and royal experts.

[quote]The judge overseeing Prince Andrew’s bid to dismiss a lawsuit from Ms Giuffre promised to hand down a ruling “pretty soon” after a heated hearing on Tuesday.

[quote]Mitchell Epner, a US former federal prosecutor said the case would not be dismissed following the court hearing led by Judge Lewis Kaplan and insisted that the Duke must settle, default or go to court.

[quote]During Tuesday’s hearing, Prince Andrew’s lawyers argued the 2009 agreement signed by Epstein and Ms Giuffre protects the Duke of York and should be grounds for dismissing her current suit against him.

[quote]The Duke is said to be “rushing” the sale of his chalet in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier to cover his mounting legal bills, and a report says his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, is actively part of his defence team.

[quote]...two jurors' exact answers on the questionnaire remain unknown, and neither has been accused of lying or incorrectly filling out their forms. Juror #50 retained an attorney on Wednesday, who did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

[quote]Valerie Hans, a law professor at Cornell University who has studied juries, told Insider there could be an innocent explanation for why a juror would incorrectly answer the questionnaire.

[quote]"If the juror did respond negatively to that question or if he failed to answer that question, it's possible he didn't notice it, or it's possible that he did not remember the details and recognize it as sexual abuse until sitting as a juror in this trial," Hans said.

[quote]If one or both Maxwell jurors did lie on the questionnaire, Huntley Taylor said they could face prosecution. Prosecutors with the Southern District of New York did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Ridiculous. The question was clear and prominent with boxes to tick. Either these guys answered truthfully or they did not.

More than one law professor has told Reuters that a new trial isn't guaranteed because overturning verdicts is something the law is very loath to do. That was somewhat surprising but bottom line - don't be surprised if Judge Nathan decides to have the verdict stay.

It's not so much his not checking the box but his statement that raising his personal history of abuse swayed the other jurors. I don't think Scotty was a shrinking violet in the jury room.

I'm glad Maxie is getting off. She got me off so many times. So many girls. Jeffrey lived right across the park from me, so it was easy to run over. Our buildings were so close. And he had a place right down the street from Mar-a-Lago. The same neighborhood. We worked it out. And he'd send me girls. That's the thing about real estate. It's all about location. New York or Florida, I was never far from Jeff.

Oh ffs...

"Ghislaine Maxwell's lawyers believe they have found a third juror in her sex trafficking trial who lied about being abused, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. The socialite was last week given hope of a retrial when two jurors admitted using their experiences of sexual abuse to sway the jury. A source said Maxwell's legal team feel 'confident a third juror lied on their jury application. There are also questions over a fourth juror, so this thing is up in the air.'"

What a blow out if 4 jurors lied then swayed the other jurors with their stories during deliberations.

Maxwell no longer cares about the identity of eight high-profile 'John Does' being concealed. The individuals are identified in court documents only as 'Non-Parties 17, 53, 54, 55, 56, 73, 93 and 151'. (They didn't help her, so why should she now?)

Who are they though? I'd bet that Glenn Dubin and Prince Andrew are amongst them.

^^^ that's juicy. I wonder if the Press can petition for this doc if the judge unseals it.

Judge has officially set sentencing for June but will investigate whether a new trial is needed in April.

And, I don't want to post this in the other Andrew thread because it's full of annoying royalists but this Substack piece has some good gossip about Andrew.

This is too good to not share too. (If you are familiar with media 'euphemisms', what's the betting 'close friend' means Andrew himself? Yeah, I don't have a lot of sympathy.
