Despite being convicted last week of aiding Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuses, Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyers argue she should get a new trial.
Apparently, one of the jurors, according to what he told the media, had been a victim of sexual abuse. The issue is he lied during the jury selection by not disclosing this beforehand.
“The juror, who asked to be identified by his first and middle names, Scotty David, told Reuters that during deliberations after some jurors expressed skepticism about the accounts of two of Maxwell’s accusers, he shared his experience of having been sexually abused as a child…’ When I shared that, they were able to sort of come around on, they were able to come around on the memory aspect of the sexual abuse”” .
“Later on Tuesday, The New York Times reported that a second juror described having been sexually abused as a child during deliberations. That juror, who requested anonymity to speak to the Times, said this revelation appeared to help shape the jury’s discussion,” Reuters reported.
Prosecutors said the juror’s statements to the media “merit attention” by the court and asked for a hearing to be scheduled in about a month.

And in the meantime, DEMOCRAT Andy Cuomo just had sexual assault charges lodged against him by a woman he was groping dropped by a DEMOCRAT district attorney in Albany, New York who said while he believed the assault took place, he really was too ******* incompetent to prove that to a jury, and so the right thing to do in that case was to drop the charges against Cuomo, making him a free man today, and proof that in America, there are indeed an upper strata to whom the laws which govern us commoners do not apply.
Yes, but we have known this since the Clinton’s came on the national scene in the early 90’s,
If 2 jurors lied, yes she does, regardless of how heinous her alleged crimes are.
