Didn’t see this coming; Ghislaine is goin on trial for perjury. 👀👀
Sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell will stand trial for perjury for allegedly lying under oath during a 2016 defamation case brought forward by accuser Virginia Giuffre.
She faces up to 65 years in prison, but more time could be tacked onto her sentence after her perjury charges are tried. Manhattan federal Judge Alison Nathan on Monday asked attorneys to submit schedule proposals for the hearing, the New York Post reported.
Those charges, filed in 2020, are related to a now-settled defamation lawsuit brought forward by Giuffre. Her lawyers later released a trove of documents they claimed prove Maxwell lied to investigators during the deposition.
The legal team has said it can disprove everything Maxwell, 60, said with flight manifests and photographs.
