Ghislaine Maxwell is DENIED a retrial after juror failed to disclose he was sexually abused: Sentencing is scheduled for June 28

A New York judge has denied Ghislaine Maxwell‘s request for a retrial on sex trafficking charges, after it emerged that one of the jurors had been sexually abused – but failed to disclose it.

Maxwell, 60, was convicted in December of grooming and trafficking underage girls for her ex-boyfriend, Jeffrey Epstein. 

Days after her conviction, Maxwell’s attorneys requested a new trial because a juror referred to as Scotty David told newspapers that he had been sexually abused as a child, but had not disclosed the information during jury selection, as required.
