In a letter dated Jan 19, lead defense attorney Bobbi Sternheim confirmed that, a motion has been filed for a new trial for Ghislaine Maxwell.
This should not come as a surprise. The day Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty of five out of six charges, Bobbi Sternheim gave a thirty second conference to the news outlets.
STESS News was present and as previously published, Sternheim had then said that they were already preparing for an appeal.
However, this change at a new trial comes from Juror 50. Juror 50, has given interviews to several news medias, notably Reuters and The Times, in which he claims having been abused as a child.
He also added that, that abuse was disclosed to the other jurors which he used to convince them to find Ghislain Maxwell Guilty.
Juror 50 also disclosed that he “flew through” the jury questionnaire and thus did not answer all the questions. One particular question was regarding sexual abuse.
As such, the letter signed by Bobbi Sternheim requests that “all submissions pertaining to Juror#50 remain under seal until the Court rules the motion”.
In another legal matter closely related to Ghislaine Maxwell, rape victim Virginia Giuffre is set to go to court in the Fall against Prince Andrew. Giuffre claims Andrew sexually abused her in three different locations.
The noise from this rape civil case impacted Prince Andrew to where, Queen Elizabeth stripped him of his military titles earlier this month.
