Angry convicts and victims of Ghislaine Maxwell’s crimes are angry that she’s receiving special treatment. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison and five years of supervised release on June 28 after being found guilty of federal sex trafficking. She was also fined $750,000 for her heinous actions. To help women who have suffered trauma, the facility’s FIT programme has been recommended to Maxwell, who is now said to have accepted the offer.
Maxwell’s anonymous victim reportedly remarked, “This sickens me,” according to The Sun. “Maxwell is getting free counselling while I had to fork over thousands of dollars for it. What about the pain and suffering her victims had to endure?”
“This sickens me,” one of Maxwell’s unidentified victims reportedly stated, according to The Sun. “To obtain counselling, I had to shell out tens of thousands of dollars, while Ghislaine Maxwell is getting it for free. Just how bad was it for her victims?”
An ex-convict who had previously served time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, for fraudulent activity warned that Jacqueline’s involvement with the FIT could pose problems, as other inmates there had been subjected to sexual abuse and trafficking of their own. A sexual predator is now in the same programme, she continued. “Their PTSD has soared. This doesn’t seem like a suitable match to me.”
Five of the six sex-trafficking-related offences against Maxwell were convicted on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, according to OK! In addition to sex trafficking, she was found guilty of enticing a minor to travel for illegal sex acts, conveying a kid with the aim of engaging in criminal sexual behaviour, and conspiring with a minor to participate in criminal sexual activity.
Her legal team pleaded for leniency before the sentencing hearing, arguing that Maxwell was a victim of both Jeffrey Epstein and her father as a child. Robert Maxwell, her father, was described by the attorneys as a regular source of physical and emotional abuse during her youth. Court documents indicate he once hit her hand with a hammer for hanging a poster on her bedroom wall as a teenager.
