Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein cohort, hit with 20 years for sex-trafficking teen girls

Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison for procuring teenage girls to be sexually abused by late financier Jeffrey Epstein after calling him a “manipulative, cunning and controlling man.” 

U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan handed down the stiff term after the British socialite’s lawyers asked for no more than five years.

Maxwell, 60, was convicted in December after a month-long trial of sex trafficking, transporting a minor to participate in illegal sex acts and two conspiracy charges.
