The Citizenship Angle of the Ghislaine Maxwell Sex Trafficking Case

 

The big news yesterday was that a federal jury in New York convicted Ghislaine Maxwell, a socialite charged with sex trafficking and aiding Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse.  Maxwell was found guilty of sex trafficking of a minor, transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and three related counts of conspiracy.  She was acquitted on the charge of enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts.

News reports suggest that Maxwell, who has lived in the United States for many years, has U.S., French, and British citizenship.  In an attempt to obtain bail and release from custody pending her trial, she offered to renounce her UK and French citizenship. The offer was one of many attempts by Maxwell’s lawyers to secure bail for her. “If the court deems it a necessary condition of release, Ms Maxwell will formally commence the procedure to renounce her foreign citizenship,” her lawyers wrote in a court motion.  Renunciation of her British and French citizenship, according to Maxwell’s lawyers, “should satisfy any concerns the court may have that Ms Maxwell may try to seek a safe haven in France or the United Kingdom.”  Prosecutors opposed the bail request, which the court denied.

Today Ms. Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years, but we are still in the dark ages when it comes to holding people accountable for sex trafficking children. It is my hope that this changes.

My own children are beng sex trafficked by my former attorney, Valerie Houghton. She let my 13 year old son get molested so that she could get $80,000 of assets placed into trust. The other children were also showing significant signs of being sexually abused, but I cannot confirm it because I have not seen them in 8 years.

When I tried to protect my kids, Ms. Houghton had me hacked, stalked, and assaulted. She also said, "It's not rape if they want it."

No one will do anything to protect my kids because she is well connected.

All the details are here. https://forum.legaljunkies.com/forum/family-law-divorce-custody/child-custody-and-support/653143-valerie-houghton-sex-trafficked-all-of-my-kids-then-had-me-poisoned-when-i-complained

If there is someone that can help me, please let me know.

Allegedly, Maxwell and Epstein were not only sexually abusing the children. They were also blackmailing the men who were having sex with the children.

Ms. Houghton, my former attorney, will always look to maximize her profits. The good parent pays to see the children until they turn 18, while the sexually abusive parent pays to stay out of jail. It's easy money. Why would she ever give up that cash flow?

What Ms. Maxwell did to these young girls was terrible. She was a selfish being who only cared about her short term pleasure. The reality is that the suffering of her victims was more significant and long term.

It is a sign of narcissism. People are disposable to her. Others are only meant to serve her.

Imagine a therapist acting in such a fashion. What good could they possibly be for anyone else? This isn't just a hypothetical. Valerie Houghton (who is both an attorney and therapist) sells children for sex. I believe that she is much the same as Ms. Maxwell in terms of personality and motivation.

Houghton has sex trafficked my own kids. She just didn't care about them. Only her interests were important.
