British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime associate of Jeffrey Epstein, was found guilty Wednesday on five of six counts of sex trafficking and other crimes.

A federal jury in New York found Maxwell guilty of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking and sex trafficking of an individual under 18, but acquitted her on one count of enticing a minor to travel across state lines to engage in an illegal sexual act.

Maxwell, 60, had been accused of recruiting teenage girls for Epstein from 1994 and 2004. Epstein killed himself in August 2019 while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Maxwell faces up to 70 years in prison.

“A unanimous jury has found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty of one of the worst crimes imaginable – facilitating and participating in the sexual abuse of children," Damian Williams, the U.S. attorney in Manhattan, said in a statement Wednesday. "Crimes that she committed with her long-time partner and co-conspirator, Jeffrey Epstein. The road to justice has been far too long. But, today, justice has been done. I want to commend the bravery of the girls – now grown women – who stepped out of the shadows and into the courtroom. Their courage and willingness to face their abuser made this case, and today’s result, possible.”

The case drew global attention due to the many high-profile public figures who were linked to Epstein and Maxwell. They included former presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, as well as Prince Andrew and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.
