The accomplice of the late US sex offender Jeffrey Epstein (1953-2019), Ghislaine Maxwell (60), does not want to accept her 20-year sentence. According to court documents released on Thursday, her lawyers have appealed. The court documents do not state the arguments for the appeal motion. Maxwell’s defense attorneys had previously spoken several times of a possibly biased jury, which is why the process had to be reopened.
