The Ghislaine Maxwell Prison Sentence Explained

U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan, who handed down Maxwell’s sentence “a very significant sentence is necessary” for Maxwell given the severity of her crimes and that handing her a hefty sentence would help send an “unmistakable message” (via the Associated Press). However, Judge Nathan decided against giving Maxwell a 30 to 55-year sentence, the length of sentence the prosecution was asking for, and reminded the court that Maxwell wasn’t being punished in place of Epstein, Miss Maxwell is being punished for the role that she played.

Instead, she chose to go with 20 years. This was a middle ground of sorts between what the prosecution was asking for and what Maxwell’s defense team was asking for. Maxwell’s defense was hoping to see their client receive a much more lenient five-year sentence. While that wasn’t the case, it was still not quite as severe as what the prosecution had asked for.

After her sentence was handed down, Maxwell addressed some of her and Epstein’s victims seated in the courtroom gallery, eight of whom read victim impact statements, according to Fox News.
