Untangling the Aftermath of Ghislaine Maxwell's Arrest

The files come from a 2015 defamation lawsuit by Virginia Roberts, who accused Maxwell of lying and sexually abusing her as a teenager and pimping her out to rich and powerful men including the Queen's son Prince Andrew. The judge reasoned that the Maxwell arguments carried little legal weight when balanced against the public's right to transparency.

Bail was denied and U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan remanded Maxwell to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.

The New York and Florida pads once owned by disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein have hit the property market for a combined $100 million (£78 million).

The judge ordered the court to have the documents ready within a week.

"Anyone who was associated with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell should be very concerned", she added. It's believed the papers will also include emails and communications between Maxwell and Epstein from 2015, sent following Virginia Giuffre's accusations. Maxwell's lawyers were given a week to file an appeal.

Prosecutors, though, said "victims should be able to continue to come forward, in the ways and in the venues they themselves choose, without fear of reprisal, shaming, or other effect arising from having their identities broadcast by defence counsel in this case".

Ghislaine Maxwell, ex-girlfriend of Jeffery Epstein was arrested on sex trafficking charges on July 2.

Maxwell shared her alleged twisted hobby for nude "art" with pedophile Epstein who had photos of naked girls and women - including Maxwell - plastered all over his mansion.

Maxwell has been charged with conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts; enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts; conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and transporting a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.

Excerpts from Maxwell's deposition were made public last August.

"No combination of conditions could reasonably assure her presence at court, the risk is simply too great".

Ghislaine Maxwell is receiving special treatment inside jail as other inmates were forced to clean and polish the floors before she arrived, they have claimed. Limited excerpts of the depositions were released previous year, in a ruling that came a day before Epstein was found dead in his NY prison cell in August.

Maxwell meanwhile "vigorously denies charges" and "intends to fight them".
