Ghislaine Maxwell will challenge claims that she groomed underage girls for the convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse. According to a letter by her lawyer, the British socialite’s defence will say her accusers might have faulty memories. The letter says that leading experts in psychiatry and memory would be brought in to testify in her defence. Ms Maxwell, 59, has pleaded not guilty to all the charges against her. She has been in a New York jail since her arrest in July last year, awaiting the trial which will begin on 29 November and last six weeks. The letter, written by Ms Maxwell’s lawyer Jeffrey Pagliuca, gives a first glimpse at what her legal team are hoping to use to defend her in court.(BBC)…[+]
