Prosecutors have submitted into evidence dozens of never-before-seen photos of the inside of Jeffrey Epstein‘s Palm Beach mansion.
Among the photos are Epstein’s bedroom and bathroom, kitchen and the massage table the accusers claim they used to give him sexual massages. Several drawings of naked women can be seen hanging on the walls, as well a drawing of Ghislaine Maxwell, who was known as the ‘lady of the house.’
Also in evidence were photos of Epstein and Maxwell’s desks, where copies of a strict 58-page handbook were kept.
However, there was no sign of sex toys, which Epstein’s housekeeper Juan Alessi testified last week to cleaning after the financer’s massages. Those photos are likely sealed.
This comes as the sixth day of Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial is underway in a Manhattan federal court.

A phone sits on top of a dresser table beside a stool in a carpeted section of the room. A the other end a black and white tiled floor surrounds the bath and next to it is a fully equipped dentist’s cart, complete with what appear to be drills, a lamp and other instruments

On Friday, Epstein‘s massage table was unfolded in court in a dramatic moment during the trial.
Maxwell, 59, is accused of procuring underage girls for pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. She has pleaded not guilty to all charges
A detective opened the dark green foldable table in front of the jury for them to see for the first time, and one of the police officers who carried out the search confirmed it was from Epstein’s house.
The massage table – along with a ‘Twin Torpedo’ sex toy – were seized from Epstein’s Palm Beach estate. On October 20, 2005, former Palm Beach Police officer Gregory Parkinson obtained the search warrant that would lead to the discovery of the items.
He was quizzed by Assistant US Attorney Maurene Comey on Friday after examining the massage table and sex toy.
Parkinson, in black gloves, took about 30 seconds to look at the table before heading to the witness stand.
Maxwell, who sat about 10 feet away alongside her defense attorneys, reportedly had no reaction.
Once on the stand Parkinson confirmed that it was the same table he seized from Epstein’s mansion nearly two decades ago.
‘It’s from the second floor south bathroom, where the shower was,’ the former cop told the courtroom, adding that he recognized the table by it’s appearance, property number and ‘made in Vista, California,’ sticker.
A detective who was handling the table then folded it back up and propped it in front of the prosecutor’s table, where it stayed until about 5pm, when the trial wrapped up for the day.

Maxwell managed Epstein’s properties, including his Palm Beach mansion, which several accusers have testified to visiting when they were underage
Housekeeper Juan Alessi testified last week, ‘From the day [Maxwell] came to the house she right away took over. She mentioned to me she was going to be the lady of the house’
Built in 1952, it was one of a number of properties where Epstein groomed and sexually assaulted underage girls and women as part of a sprawling sex trafficking scheme, prosecutors said
Epstein’s massage table that was seized by the FBI in 2005 was brought into court on Friday
Alessi said that he saw ‘pornographic tapes and a black leather costume’ in a basket in Maxwell’s bathroom
Fellow Palm Beach officer Sgt Michael Dawson took the stand after Parkinson and noted that the cops ‘were looking for massage tables,’ that day in 2005. ‘We were looking for massage oils. We were looking for sex toys,’ he added.
Prosecutors then showed the jury a picture of cardboard boxes and a pair of sex toys, dubbed ‘Twin Torpedoes’.
Dawson confirmed that the toys were seized by police from a closet inside the disgraced financier’s house.
Although prosecutors did not clarify why the table and sex toys were brought into evidence, the first accuser to testify at Maxwell’s trial claimed Epstein used sex toys on her and abused her during ‘massages’.
‘He liked to…use vibrators that were different sizes; and even, like, those back massagers that were, you know, painful,’ she said.’
Housekeeper Juan Alessi, 72, took the stand last week and said that part of his job was to clean up after Epstein’s massages – which he said Maxwell scheduled three times per day and which usually took place in his bathroom.
Asked by the prosecutor if he ever found anything ‘unexpected’ after the massages, Alessi said that he found a ‘large dildo,’ describing it as ‘a huge man’s penis with two heads.’
Alessi said that he put gloves on and ‘ran it under the water and put the dildo in Ms. Maxwell’s closet in (her) bathroom’ inside of a wicker basket.
Alessi said that he saw ‘pornographic tapes and a black leather costume’ in the same basket.
He said that three or four other times he found two other sex toys: one that looked ‘like a pillow’ and another that looked like an ‘arm’ which had a rubber vibrating part at the end. He put those items in Epstein’s dresser.
Alessi testifies, ‘I was supposed to be blind, deaf, to say nothing.’
To ‘never disclose’ Maxwell and Epstein’s ‘whereabouts or activities,’ he added.

Appearance is extremely important if high standards are to be maintained. A favorable first impression goes a long way.
• Personal cleanliness, good presentation, and a genuine and polite ‘aim to please’ approach are very important
• Try and anticipate the needs of Mr Epstein, Ms Maxwell and their guests
• Make guests feel pampered and welcome
• Do not discuss personal problems with guests
• Remember that you see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing, except to answer a question directed at you
• Unobtrusive is the key
• Wear the appropriate clothing. Dark blue trousers with white golf shirts to be worn daily, long sleeve white shirts for dinner service
• Items in pockets must not create a bulge or be visible
• Do not address Mr Epstein, Ms Maxwell and their guests with hands in your pockets
• Do not chew gum
• Avoid using strong perfume or aftershave lotion. This could cause an allergic reaction
