Legal disputes

Under federal court rules, Prince Andrew, or as he is known by his official title, the Duke of York, has 21 days to respond. If he doesn’t, he can face a default judgment.

Giuffre accuses Andrew of abusing her at Maxwell’s home, Epstein’s home, and Epstein’s private island.

Prince Andrew has not been charged with any crime.

The High Court in London stated that they would ensure that the Prince was served if a settlement with both parties failed to materialise.

Ghislaine Maxwell Last

Ghislaine Maxwell, a former girlfriend and alleged buyer of underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein, is currently in a Brooklyn jail. If convicted of sex trafficking and other charges, she could face up to 80 years in prison.

She recently tried to undo the human trafficking allegations, but was unsuccessful. She is being held on eight counts, which include attempting to locate and care for underage girls so that Epstein can sexually assault her between 1994 and 2004.

Maxwell has repeatedly tried to be released on bail, including offering to renounce British and French citizenship, but was refused three times.

Epstein’s filthy life

Accusations against Jeffrey Epstein and his associates have become internationally known, especially since the news that former President Bill Clinton has made several trips on his private jet.

Epstein moved between the rich and famous and infamous.

His profession has been described as “financier” and he marketed his services specifically to “people with assets worth more than $1 billion.” In 2008, he pleaded guilty to a felony of solicitation to prostitution involving a minor and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

He would serve only 13 and was given a work waiver. He also had to register as a sex offender.

He was arrested again on July 6, 2019 in New Jersey on dozens of counts of sexually abusing underage girls at his Manhattan mansion, a Palm Beach Florida home and a private island owned by Epstein.

The indictment also accused Epstein of paying several of his victims to recruit additional underage girls that he could sexually abuse, some as young as 14.

Epstein pleaded not guilty to the charges and was denied bail.

On August 10, 2019, officials say he committed suicide in his New York City prison cell.
