MAX FACTOR: Will Ghislaine Maxwell be Club Fed or have a difficult time?
Ghislaine Maxwell, who used to be a socialite but now sells sex, won’t have a red carpet, velvet ropes, bottle service, or famous friends.
Even the nicest federal prisons, like Club Fed, don’t have the kinds of things the poor little rich girl used to have.
The 60-year-old publishing heiress, who became famous during her long relationship with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is expected to be sentenced on Tuesday in Manhattan.
The Brit faces decades in the slammer for her role in the jet-setting sex trafficking ring that saw countless young women and underaged girls dispatched around the world for sex with Epstein and his coterie of like-minded, well-heeled pals.
Her lawyers have said that a four-year sentence is enough and that Maxwell is a stand-in for Epstein, who killed himself in a New York jail cell in 2019.
Levine said from his home in New York, “I’ll be there on Tuesday. We’ve been waiting a long time for this day.”
Levine called the disgraced socialite’s jail term “the $1-million question.”
“Her lawyers made fun of her crimes, and in the end, they couldn’t find two witnesses to help them defend her. They then attacked the victims, which made them feel like victims again,” a veteran reporter said.
Team Maxwell’s most recent move was to bring up a time when she was 12 and her media mogul father hit her on the hand with a hammer.
Levine noted that until last week, no one in her inner or outer circle had ever heard the tale.
In the past, it was said that Ghislaine Maxwell loved her father Robert, whose life ended in shame when it was found out that he had stolen about $1 billion from his employees’ pension fund.
Then, he fell off his yacht, Lady Ghislaine, near the Canary Islands and drowned. No one knows why.
His daughter has long insisted her father was murdered.
“The prosecution won that trial fair and square,” Levine said.
Prosecutors are thinking about putting Maxwell in jail for 30 to 55 years, while the probation department is thinking about 20 years.
Her lawyers have suggested a ridiculously long sentence of four years.
“In reality, the charges add up to 30 years, and it would be terrible if she got less than 20 years,” Levine said.
Levine spent years researching and talking to people who knew, worked with, or was hurt by Epstein for The Spider. He said that Maxwell wasn’t a baby.
“If I learned anything it’s how much of a predator Ghislaine Maxwell was,” the writer said.
In the end, Epstein would have had fewer victims if Maxwell hadn’t helped him arrange his sick sexual activities with teenage girls.
“Ghislaine was the predator… she had a fascination with finding new ways to find these girls, ordering them around and grooming them. She didn’t even mind if they were underage,” Levine added.
“The most disgusting thing about her part in all of this is that she wasn’t just Epstein’s assistant; she was a full partner in these crimes. And if it weren’t for her, there would be half as many victims.”
