Previously, Scott Borgerson served as the CEO of Cargometrics, a hedge fund investment company involved in maritime data analytics. Because of the publicity surrounding Maxwell, he stepped down from his position as CEO in October 2020.

The Mirror Times pension scandal

After Maxwell’s father, Robert Maxwell’s body, was found floating in the sea near the Canary islands in 1991, Maxwell moved to the US. Robert Maxwell was posthumously involved in the fraudulent appropriation of pension assets for The Mirror Group Newspapers. There were alleged £440m in pension funds unaccounted for, which legally bound the remaining Maxwells liable to repay the 32000 people thus affected. Ghislaine Maxwell’s brothers, Ian and Kevin Maxwell were arrested based on these charges on 19 June 1992. The brothers were acquitted of these charges three and a half years later, in January 1996. 

The Concorde controversy

Immediately after moving to the US in 1991, Maxwell was photographed boarding a Concorde flight to cross the Atlantic amidst the Mirror Times scandal, which led to a furor due to the high cost of the flight.  

Ascent to a New York City socialite

Maxwell had an annual income of £80000 when she first moved to the US, courtesy of a trust fund established by her father in Liechtenstein. She moved in with an Iranian acquaintance into an apartment overlooking Central Park. From then onwards, she was often spotted socializing with celebrities which paved the way for her ascent to the status of an NYC socialite.

Lawsuits and accusations (as of 2021)

  •  Court Livestream controversy

A court hearing was disrupted by believers in QAnon in January 2021, who believed Maxwell to be working with a plot of Satanist child traffickers. The proceedings were also live-streamed on YouTube.

  • Jane Doe v. Epstein’s estate

A Broward County lady filed a civil lawsuit against Epstein’s estate in March 2021. The charges were tantamount to trafficking and repeated rape of the said lady. 

July 2020 arrest

The FBI arrested Maxwell in Bradford, New Hampshire, on 2 July 2020 through a “stingray” or an IMSI- catcher mobile phone tracking device while she was on the phone with her husband, Scott Borgerson, and her sister Isabel. 

Court trial and detention

Maxwell was charged with sex trafficking and enticement of minors by the US federal government in 2020. On 14 July 2020, the federal judge denied Maxwell bail as “her chances of fleeing were simply too great.” Prosecutors have charged her with six federal crimes, including sex trafficking, enticement of minors, and perjury. 

As of 28 April 2021, Maxwell was held in the Metropolitan detention center, Brooklyn, New York. Maxwell’s lawyers requested that she be shifted to house arrest under 24- hour surveillance. But Judge Nathan rejected a US$5 million bail package and the plea stating Maxwell’s “high flight risk.” 

Here is the latest update on the sex trafficking trial of Ghislaine Maxwell

Judge Nathan postponed Maxwell’s trial from May 2021 to 29 November, 2021.

The trial commences on 29 November with opening statements. If convicted, Maxwell may be imprisoned for up to 80 years.
