NEW YORK (AP) — A judge says Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial will start in November on charges that she recruited teenage girls for Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse over a 10-year period. U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan said in an order Tuesday that jury selection can occur in mid-November and opening statements can happen on Nov. 29. The order was issued a day after prosecutors told the judge that both sides would be ready for trial in November. The judge recently scrapped a July 12 trial date after defense lawyers complained that sex trafficking charges added in March left them insufficient time to prepare.
