GHISLAINE Maxwell abused dozens more victims who should come forward so she dies in prison, a lawyer who represented them has said.
Lisa Bloom said the three women who the 60-year-old socialite was convicted of sex trafficking and grooming for her one-time boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein to abuse are merely the “tip of the iceberg”.
Maxwell is due to be sentenced on Wednesday at a federal court in Manhattan and prosecutors have asked for her to serve at least 30 years – while her lawyers are calling for a maximum of five years.
During her trial, victims came forward to accuse Maxwell of grooming them to be abused by multi-millionaire Epstein and abusing them herself.
“We know that over 150 women came forward with sexual abuse accusations to the Jeffrey Epstein Victim Compensation Fund – I represented eight of them,” Bloom told The Sun Online.
“We know that Ghislaine Maxwell has now been convicted of conspiring with him and sex trafficking girls to him.
“So it seems obvious to me that there are many more potential victims who could come forward against Ghislaine Maxwell.
“And they should so that she gets the maximum possible sentence for hurting so many women.”
Bloom said that “most” of the 150 were groomed by Maxwell and the victims who have come forward are “the tip of the iceberg”.
In what was described as the “trial of the century”, the jury heard how Maxwell snared girls as young as 14 for Epstein.
Maxwell, who was labelled “dangerous” by the prosecution, helped entice vulnerable teenagers to Epstein’s various properties for him to sexually abuse between 1994 and 2004.
She was accused of “serving up” girls for the multi-millionaire, her former lover, with the pair described as “partners in crime”.
Epstein hanged himself in 2019 in jail as he awaited trial on sex trafficking charges.
In a bid to reduce her sentence, her lawyers said she has faced death threats and harsh conditions that have caused her to lose hair and weight.
GHISLAINE Maxwell was found guilty of five out of six charges over her alleged involvement with Jeffrey Epstein. Those charges are:
- Conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts
- Conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
- Transportation of a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
- Sex trafficking conspiracy
- Sex trafficking of a minor
A prisoner in Maxwell’s housing unit reportedly told at least three other inmates that she had been offered money to murder her.
They have also alleged that she was “beaten with a hammer” by her father as they laid bare details of her “traumatising childhood”.
But prosecutors said Maxwell “has enjoyed remarkable privileges as a high-profile inmate that vastly exceed the benefits accorded to the average inmate.
“It is unsurprising that a woman who had led a life of incredible luxury should complain about her life as a prisoner.
“But that fact does not come close to meriting leniency at sentencing, much less the extraordinary degree of leniency the defendant seeks.”
