Ghislaine Maxwell moved to federal jail in Brooklyn
The Washington Post–Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime companion of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein accused of facilitating his sexual abuse of teenage girls, has been transferred to a federal detention center in Brooklyn ahead of an arraignment and bail hearing that may come next week.
Maxwell, 58, was arrested Thursday in New Hampshire on charges she lured and groomed victims as young as 14, officials said. Federal prosecutors also accused Maxwell of participating in acts of sexual abuse with Epstein, the wealthy and well-connected financier who died by suicide last year while in federal custody.
