Tuesday First Full Day of Deliberations

Jury begins 1st full day of deliberations : Jurors were set to begin their first full day of deliberations on Tuesday morning.

Judge Nathan called prosecutors and Ms Maxwell’s attorneys into the courtroom on Tuesday morning to hear a note from the jury.

It read: “We would like the transcripts/testimony of ‘Jane,’ Annie and Carolyn.”

The note referred to three of the four accusers who testified about alleged abuse. The first testified under the pseudonym “Jane Doe”, Annie Farmer went by her full name and Carolyn went only by her first name.

The note did not ask for a transcript from a fourth accuser under the pseudonym “Kate”, who is not considered a victim of Ms Maxwell under the judge’s instructions because she was not a minor at the time of their alleged interactions.

Judge Nathan said the transcripts requested were being prepared to send to the jury room.

The Jury Requests Transcripts of Three Accusers

The jury in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial asked on Tuesday to review transcripts of testimony from three accusers.

Jurors in Manhattan federal court sent the judge a note around 10.10am, saying: “We would like the transcripts, testimony of Jane, Annie and Carolyn.”

Jane, who testified under a pseudonym, said Epstein started to sexually abuse her when she was 14. She told jurors Maxwell was sometimes present for, and participated in, such abuse.
