British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell has been found guilty of five out of six charges of recruiting and grooming teenage girls to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein.

The trial has been seen by some as a chance to hold both her and the late financier accountable.

Among the charges, she has been found guilty of sex trafficking a minor – punishable by up to 40 years in prison.

Ms Maxwell’s lawyers claimed she is innocent.
