(UnitedVoice.com) – On December 29, a federal jury found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty of five of the six charges against her. The jury agreed she played a key role in recruiting and grooming underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring. Many people have wondered whether she was going to name Epstein’s clients, but she has remained silent. Her brother recently explained why.
Ian Maxwell spoke to The Sunday Times about his sister’s conviction and said she doesn’t have any plans to cut a deal with prosecutors to name the people connected to Epstein’s ring. According to him, prosecutors have not offered any plea bargains and Ghislaine has not accepted anything, “I expect that position to be maintained,” he said.
During a separate interview with Sky News, Ian said Ghislaine is maintaining her innocence, saying she didn’t commit any crimes nor was she aware of them. Maxwell’s attorney is already talking about appealing the conviction.

During Maxwell’s trial, multiple victims testified she not only helped recruit them for Epstein but also participated in the abuse. Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s alleged victims didn’t testify at the trial but reportedly plans to give a victim impact statement at sentencing.
Although Ian Maxwell doesn’t believe his sister will ever name the people involved in the trafficking ring, one never knows what another person will do to save themselves. Ghislaine is facing 65 years in prison – that’s 65 reasons to sing like a bird.
