Epstein Accuser Virginia Roberts Set to Speak At Ghislaine Maxwell’s Sentencing

One of the highest-profile accusers of the late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is set to speak at the sentencing of his former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, who was convicted earlier this year of grooming underage girls for him to abuse.

The couple had been rumored for years to be engaged in a high-end underage sex trafficking ring when Epstein was arrested in 2019. He died in his jail cell awaiting trial and Maxwell’s trial was viewed by many as a proxy trial of sorts for Epstein’s crimes, a point her attorneys unsuccessfully attempted to argue to defend their client along with claims that the four victims who testified against the accused madame had fabricated or mixed up their memories.

Maxwell is set to be sentenced in June.

Virginia Roberts, née Giuffre, who has long alleged that Maxwell and Epstein groomed her into sexual servitude under their watchful eye and recently settled out of court with the United Kingdom’s Prince Andrew, who she says sexually abused her when she was 17, will be on hand in Manhattan when Maxwell is sentenced to share her side of the story.

The Sun noted that Roberts’ appearance at the disgraced British socialite’s sentencing hearing will correspond inconveniently with Queen Elizabeth’s historic Platinum Jubilee celebrations across the Pond, although the queen stripped her second son of his royal and military titles before the civil suit filed by Roberts was set to go to trial in New York.

“Maxwell’s sentencing could be the first time we hear from Virginia since the settlement,” a legal source told the British tabloid. “It will bring the whole affair with Andrew back up again just as he hopes to move on.”

Roberts and the royal have agreed per the terms of the settlement not to discuss its details until after the jubilee celebrations. Queen Elizabeth is the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years on the throne.

Maxwell is facing up to 65 years in prison over accusations made by just four women, and The Sun’s legal source noted that there are likely many more victims who might want to use her sentencing as an opportunity to share their stories, including Roberts, who is “highly likely to want to make a statement.”
