FORMER British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison on June 28, 2022.
She was convicted on five charges of sex trafficking for the scandal involving Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein killed himself in prison in 2019 while awaiting his own sex trafficking trial.
Maxwell was convicted in December 2021 of sex trafficking and transporting an individual under the age of 17 with the intent to engage in sexual activity.
After receiving her sentence, Maxwell apologized to the victims, saying she empathized with them, agregando, that meeting Epstein was the “biggest regret” of her life.
“My association with Epstein will permanently stain me,” she said and added that she hoped victims would find “peace and finality” from her prison sentence.
