More charges could be coming for those involved with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, including his alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, who was arrested last month for allegedly procuring underage girls to be sexually abused by Epstein and for lying about her involvement under oath.
The New York Post reported that the grand jury investigation that resulted in Epstein and Maxwell’s arrests “remains active, according to court papers filed Friday.”
“Federal prosecutors in Maxwell’s criminal case revealed the ongoing investigation in a letter urging a judge to block her from filing newly obtained information in civil cases against her,” the outlet reported. “The documents, which Maxwell’s attorneys have called ‘critical new information,’ could jeopardize their ongoing investigation if it is allowed to be filed in the civil cases.”
“As the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has stated publicly, the investigation into the conduct of the defendant in this case and other possible co-conspirators of Jeffrey Epstein remains active,” prosecutors wrote in the letter sent to the judge.
The full scope and details of that investigation, however, have not been made public,” the prosecutors added.
Maxwell pleaded not guilty to the six-count indictment against her and is being held in a New York jail sometimes referred to as a “hellhole.” As The Daily Wire previously reported, Maxwell allegedly believes Epstein was murdered in prison and that she could be next. A federal judge denied her bail “and ordered that she be held at the Brooklyn Detention Center, where she has been held since shortly after her July 2 arrest in New Hampshire,” The Daily Wire’s Joseph Curl wrote.
Epstein died in his prison cell on August 10, 2019. New York City’s chief medical examiner ruled his death a suicide.
