Ghislaine Maxwell's Attorney Grills Accuser 'Jane' On Stand About First Time She Saw Alleged Madame With Clothes Off
Ghislaine Maxwell's first accuser continued her testimony on Wednesday, and things took an uncomfortable turn when the accused sex trafficker's attorney asked about the first time "Jane" saw the alleged madame with her clothes off.
The disgraced socialite's lawyer Laura Menninger showed no mercy, questioning the accuser about her explosive testimony on Tuesday in which she claimed Maxwell “took their clothes off" in front of her when she was underage.

Prosecutors allege "Jane" met Maxwell and her and her alleged sex sidekick Jeffrey Epstein when she was only 14 years old. They claim the abuse happened in New York and Palm Beach between 1994 and 1997.
According to "Jane," shortly after she was first allegedly abused, Maxwell lead her to his Palm Beach bedroom, moved her over to his bed, and “took their clothes off.”
Grilling her over her testimony, Menninger brought up an instance in December 19, claiming Jane allegedly told the government that she did "not have a specific memory of your first time with Ghislaine.”
“You have come up with that memory in the last two years, correct?” Maxwell's attorney asked. Defending herself, "Jane" responded, “I don’t believe I’ve come up with a memory, no."

There are four alleged victims set to take the stand during Maxwell's sex trafficking trial — Jane, Annie, Kate, and Carolyn. Three of the accusers are using false names to protect their identities. Annie Farmer is the only one who has identified herself.
Jane, Annie, Kate, and Carolyn claim they suffered sexual abuse at the hands of Maxwell and Epstein when they were underage.
During opening statements, one of Maxwell's other attorneys called the women "consummate actresses" and belittled them. She picked each one of them apart, questioning their past, and revealing they all benefited millions from the Epstein victims fund.
Maxwell has been accused of recruiting and grooming young girls for Epstein and his rich pals to abuse. The British socialite was arrested in July 2020. She pled not guilty to 6 counts of sex trafficking, enticement of minors, and other crimes.
If convicted, Maxwell could face up to 80 years in prison.
