A U.S. judge on Friday denied a motion by Ghislaine Maxwell to overturn her December 2021 conviction on sex trafficking charges for her role in helping the late financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse teenage girls.

Maxwell, 60, was convicted on December 29 of federal charges of sex trafficking.

Yet immediately after the trial one of the jurors, Scotty David, revealed that he had been sexually abused, and said that he used his experiences to inform the jury’s deliberations.

Maxwell’s team immediately sought a retrial, pointing out that all potential jurors were asked in their questionnaire if they were survivors of sexual abuse, and he said no.

In March, David was brought back before the judge, and apologized for failing to disclose the information.

On April 1, Judge Alison Nathan denied Maxwell a retrial.

On Friday, she refused Maxwell’s bid to be acquitted.
