British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is preparing to front court in New York later this month over her alleged participation in billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein sexual abuse of underage girls. And yesterday, her legal team has revealed how it is planning on defending her in court. They will question the accusers’ memories and will bring in experts in the field to testify in her defence, including psychologist Elizabeth Loftus. She has testified for the likes of Harvey Weinstein, Ted Bundy and OJ Simpson. Another expert will testify that the accusation that Maxwell committed “grooming-by-proxy” has no support in the scientific community. Maxwell’s trial starts on 29 November, and it is expected to last up to 6 weeks.
