(CMR) Ghislaine Maxwell, the ex-girlfriend of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested by the FBI.
Maxwell, whose whereabouts were unknown since Epstein's arrest in July 2019 and had maintained a low profile, was captured early Thursday morning at about 8:30 a.m. in the small town of Bradford, New Hampshire.
While she has denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's alleged sexual misconduct, several victims have alleged that Maxwell was instrumental in Epstein's activities with many accusing her of recruiting them for Epstein.
Maxwell is facing six federal charges which include a conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury.
Epstein committed suicide on August 10, 2019 as he awaited trial on sex trafficking charges.
