Judge Tells the Jury to Ignore 1 Heart-Wrenching Comment From Teary-Eyed Epstein Accuser

A witness in Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial went over the line Tuesday as she tried to explain the damage done by the abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein.

Maxwell is on trial over allegations that she procured underage girls for Epstein. Epstein was under arrest for alleged sex trafficking when he died in August 2019 in a Manhattan jail cell.

On Tuesday, an alleged Epstein victim, who used only the name Carolyn in her testimony, was being grilled by defense attorney Jeffrey Pagliuca about drug use at Epstein’s Palm Beach, Florida, mansion, according to live-tweeting of her testimony by Inner City Press, which covers the federal district court for the Southern District of New York.

“Ghislaine Maxwell fondled me and broke my soul,” Carolyn said in response to a question from Pagliuca.

Pagliuca wanted the comment stricken.

Judge Alison Nathan agreed.

Earlier, Carolyn said Virginia Giuffre – who has publicly accused Epstein and Maxwell of luring her into their web – introduced her to Epstein and Maxwell when the witness was 14 years old, according to The Guardian. – READ MORE
