The allegation was fabricated by Maxwell’s legal team in the hope that it would result in a reduced sentence for their client.
The attorneys for Ghislaine Maxwell’s cellmate claim that she has indicated on many occasions that she was offered money to kill Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice. This is according to the allegations made by the attorneys.
This assertion was made by Maxwell’s legal team on Wednesday when they submitted it as part of a court filing to get their client’s sentence reduced. Maxwell was found guilty in December of five of the six counts presented against her throughout her trial. These counts included the most severe claim, which was that she engaged in the sex trafficking of minors.
According to the complaint, she “said that she had been offered money to kill her and meant to strangle her to death in her sleep” and that at least three of her fellow inmates heard her say this. The lawsuit also alleged that the payment was “worth an extra 20 years of captivity.”
