In a Times report from last year, one alleged Epstein survivor said Maxwell threatened her life after she notified police departments and the FBI about Epstein’s alleged behaviour.
"Better be careful and watch your back," she recalled Maxwell telling her. "I know you go to the West Side Highway all the time. While you’re out there, just be really careful, because there are a lot of ways to die there."
Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of the most outspoken of Epstein's survivors, maintains that Maxwell introduced her to British royalty Prince Andrew, adding that she was forced to have sex with him.
Prince Andrew and the royal family have so far denied all claims, with Andrew himself telling journalist Emily Maitlis that he has “no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever” in his infamous defense interview last year. He has since retired from all royal responsibilities permanently.
According to The Guardian, if she is convicted, Maxwell could face up to 35 years in prison.
