Jury resumes deliberations in Ghislaine Maxwell trial

Jurors in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex crimes trial have resumed deliberations in a case that could see the British socialite spend the rest of her life behind bars, asking the judge for the legal definition of “enticement.”

Maxwell, who turned 60 on Christmas Day, is accused of recruiting and grooming young girls to be sexually abused by the late American financier Jeffrey Epstein.

The 12-person jury began considering Maxwell’s fate on December 20 after a three-week trial and were granted a holiday break from Thursday.

The jury reconvened on Monday morning and sent a note to Judge Alison Nathan requesting highlighter pens, colored post-it notes and a white board.

The jurors also asked for a legal definition of enticement and to review the transcript of testimony given by the ex-boyfriend of “Jane,” one of the four women who testified against Maxwell.

One of the six counts Maxwell is charged with relates to enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts. Another is conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts.
