During the eighth day of the sex trafficking trial against Ghislaine Maxwell in the Southern District Court of New York, the ex-boyfriend of "Carolyn", "Shawn" testified. 'Carolyn' in the previous session claimed that
she gave more than a hundred massages to Jeffrey Epstein.
These massages were gven at the request of the defendant.
The defendant paid her between USD 300 and USD 400 for each one. 'Shawn' confirmed 'Carolyn's testimony, he further testified that
"Carolyn" only had two jobs.
One in a fast food restaurant and
the other with the late mogul.
The prosecution showed new photographs that reveal the
love relationship between Jeffrey Epstein and the defendant, Ghislaine Maxwell, were released this Wednesday by the prosecution. In one of them, Epstein and Maxwell are seen in Queen Elizabeth of England's log cabin at Balmoral.
Likewise, they released many sensual images among which the defendant is observed while rubbing Epstein's feet on board an airplane.
The images were recovered during a police raid on the Upper East Side home of the sex offender who died in July 2019, FBI analyst Kimberly Meder testified Tuesday. Read more here.
Wednesday's trial was delayed due to the delay of a member of the jury who experienced "substantial problems with the train," according to the judge, Alison Nathan. The trial usually begins around 9 a.m. and the jury is called to the courtroom promptly at 9:30 a.m.
With the delay resolved, the prosecution called Janine Gill, director of human resources for the Mar-a-Lago resort, owned by former President Donald Trump, to the stand.
This witness authenticated the records related to Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
The objective of the Prosecutor's Office in citing this witness was to reinforce the evidence that Virginia Roberts' father worked in that club at the time Ghislaine Maxwell met the young woman. Indeed, the witness informed the court that the club hired Sky Roberts on April 11, 2000, who was in charge of maintenance work with a pay of USD 12 per hour. Prosecutors presented the jury with Virginia Roberts' birth certificate showing that her father is Sky Roberts.
Former manager of Jeffrey Epstein's Palm Beach home, Juan Alessi, said Virginia Giuffre, who was known at the time as Virginia Roberts, spent time at the home and that Maxwell picked her up at the Mar-a-Lago club.
Virginia Giuffre has previously filed complaints against Epstein and Maxwell for sexual misconduct and trafficking. She specified that she was 16 years old when she met the defendant today in the summer of 2000 at Donald Trump's club.
It is significant to note that the perjury charges that the prosecution has filed against Ghislaine Maxwell will be dealt with in a separate trial, are the result of having lied in a statement for one of Virginia Giuffre's lawsuits.
What "Carolyn's" boyfriend said
The government called as a witness "Shawn", who dated 'Carolyn', one of the alleged victims of Ghislaine Maxwell. 'Carolyn's' testimony was heard in Tuesday's session.
The man told the jury that he began dating "Carolyn" in Florida when he was 17 years old and the girl was 14 years old.
This testimony that coincides with what was affirmed by the witness this Tuesday, that she began to have relations with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, being the victim of the abuse of both when she was just 14 years old.
"Shawn" presently is 38 years old, explained to the jury that, generally, he would drive Carolyn to Jeffrey Epstein's mansion in Palm Beach, Florida. This would have been in the early 2000s, which corroborates the 'Carolyns'.
He remembered taking "Carolyn" the first time to Epstein's mansion with a girl named Virginia Roberts and her boyfriend. The young woman had told her that she could earn money by giving a man massage.
“Shawn” described “Carolyn as a girl at the time. "She was a very young girl," he said.
He said that he and Virginia Roberts's boyfriend saw the girls enter Jeffrey Epstein's house, from which they emerged more than an hour later with hundred-dollar bills.
Virginia Roberts, is now known as Virginia Giuffre, who serves as one of the strong accusers of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. However, it is not certain that she will testify at this trial.
"Shawn" said that he took "Carolyn" regularly every two weeks, with each time she left the house with $ 100 bills that they later spent on drugs.
- Why wasn't she driving herself? Asked the prosecutor.
- Because she was too young.
The witness also reported that "Carolyn" once received a gift that contained lingerie. The package came from an address in New York.
He added that he also took two other girls to Epstein's home. They were two young women I was dating at the time, named Amanda and Melissa.
The witness said he did not know Maxwell, but that "Carolyn" told him about a woman named "Maxwell" and that she had a first name that he could not pronounce.
Likewise, "Shawn" reported that, on occasions, he received calls from Jeffrey Epstein employees to schedule a massage appointment for the financier with "Carolyn." Sometimes someone with an English accent would make the calls, but they never said their name.
Then Nicole Hesse, a man who worked for Jeffrey Epstein in the early 2000s, took the stand for about a year.
The man was supposed to receive phone messages at Epstein's mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, when the latter was not at home.
He said it was Ghislaine Maxwell who instructed him on where to write down the messages.
The prosecution asked Hesse to authenticate sealed evidence showing a call from Carolyn to the Epstein property in August 2004. She was the same name as one of Ghislaine Maxwell's alleged victims.
The prosecution called David Rodgers, a veteran pilot in the service of Jeffrey Epstein, to testify.
He told the jury about the trips in which he took the tycoon and Ghislaine Maxwell in the mid-1990s, including those to and from Travers City, Michigan, which took place in August 1994.
Travers is the city where Camp Interlochen is located, a summer camp about which "Jane", one of Ghislaine Maxwell's accusers, referred to as the place where she met Epstein and Maxwell.
This was the second of Epstein's pilots to testify at trial.
He told the prosecutor, Maurene Comey, that he drove Virginia Roberts Giuffre 32 times in the early 2000s.
After this, the prosecutor referred to a flight log book obtained by the prosecution, revealing that Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, Virginia Roberts and 'Jane' among others, made flights together in the United States and abroad. . These itineraries included a 2001 flight from Spain to Morocco with Roberts, Maxwell and Epstein. It also accounts for travel from nearby airports to Epstein properties in New Mexico, New Jersey, Florida, and the US Virgin Islands.
As on other occasions, several names related to the couple came to light in the statements of David Rodgers, who referred to Glenn Dubin - a billionaire hedge fund manager - and his wife Eva Andersson Dubin, who for 11 years dated Epstein until early 1990s.
MIT professor Marvin Minsky, a well-known Epstein associate whom Virginia Roberts Giuffre pointed to as sex trafficking. He passed away in 2016.
Rodgers told prosecutor Comey that he never allowed his daughter to massage Jeffrey Epstein and he denied receiving tens of millions of dollars from the financier.
