The Aftermath

If juror Scotty David didn’t disclose the correct information on the juror questionnaire regarding being a victim of abuse, then we could be heading for a mistrial. Also, in this episode John discusses the ongoing civil case between one of Epstein’s victims and Prince Andrew.

The Verdict

After over 40 hours of deliberation, the jury reached a verdict finding Ghislaine Maxwell guilty on 5 out of 6 counts. However, rather than this being the end of a dark, twisted fairy tale, the jurors decision could raise further questions to be answered. Questions involving some very powerful people who may be less than happy with the trial outcome. In this episode John Sweeney and his producer Ruth Barnes discuss the impact of this guilty verdict.

The Jury Decides

The Jury have heard from both the prosecution and defence teams and now the fate of Ghislaine Maxwell is in their hands. They’ve asked the Judge for several more pieces of information, but what does this mean? What we do know is that Ghislaine Maxwell will spend Christmas Day, also her 60th Birthday, locked in her cell.

A weak defence, or a cunning plan?

Ghislaine Maxwells defence begins, but starts with more of a whimper than a bang. So far, we’ve heard from 2 witnesses who’s testimony seemed underwhelming and a false memory expert who didn’t quite cut the mustard. However, Ghislaine’s defence team are planning to call one of the survivors lawyers to the stand and this could change everything.
