The defense presented its case on Day 11 and Day 12. The defense requested more time to present its case, due to one witness only being able to arrive on Monday, Judge Nathan denied the request.

Judge Nathan asked Ghislaine Maxwell if she wanted to testify on her behalf , however Ms Maxwell assured the judge that there is no need for her to do such a thing.

The Ghislaine Maxwell Trial was set to last six weeks. Day 9 was adjourned early due to one of the lawyers being sick.

“Your honour, the government has not proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt,”. “So there is no need for me to testify.”

The defense had originally planned to question as many as 35 witnesses, but whittled that list down as it struggled to locate one witness, failed to persuade the judge to allow more time, and finally decided that Ms Maxwell herself would not testify.

The defense called a number of witnesses in their case over two days, including former employees and an ex-girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein.
