Ghislaine Maxwell's family says they've 'already started the appeal' after guilty child-sex-trafficking verdict
Ghislaine Maxwell's family said they've already started an appeal to Maxwell's conviction.
- Maxwell, 60, was found guilty of five of six sex-trafficking charges.
Ghislaine Maxwell's family said they've "already started the appeal" after a jury on Wednesday found Maxwell, a longtime associate of the convicted sex offender
"We believe firmly in our sister's innocence — we are very disappointed with the verdict," the statement said. "We have already started the appeal tonight and we believe she will ultimately be vindicated."
Maxwell, who turned 60 on Christmas Day, faces a potential sentence of 65 years in prison.
The verdict came almost a year and a half after the British socialite was arrested in New Hampshire on suspicion of arranging and participating in the sexual abuse of girls with Epstein.
Jurors in the trial came to a decision after more than five full days of deliberations.
US District Judge Alison Nathan didn't immediately indicate when Maxwell would be sentenced.
