Larry Visoski addressed the New York court on Tuesday and gave insight into just how close Epstein was with Maxwell. In opening statements on Monday, her attorney attempted to put space between the now-deceased pedophile and her client.
But according to Visoski, they were more than business associates.
When asked about Epstein and Maxwell's relationship, the pilot responded it was "more personal than business." He also said he "wouldn’t characterize it as romantic" despite the two dating in their past.
Visoski revealed he knew Epstein pretty well considering he flew him around on his private jets — including the "Lolita Express," which allegedly shuttled underage girls — "every four days."
Epstein's high-profile pals like Bill Clinton are said to have flown on the Lolita Express.
Last year, flight records for all of Epstein's private planes were subpoenaed, sparking panic in Hollywood for all those who used to party with the former billionaire-turned-criminal.
On Monday, Maxwell's attorney claimed her client was a "scapegoat for a man who behaved badly."
“Epstein is not on trial but his name and his conduct, as you have already heard, will be mentioned throughout this trial," Bobbi Sternheim stated in the courtroom.
She also went as far as to call Epstein a "21st Century James Bond," claiming, "his mystery has stirred interest. His accusers have shaken the money tree and millions of dollars have fallen their way."
But Sternheim wants to make it clear: "She’s not Jeffrey Epstein. She’s not like Jeffrey Epstein."
Maxwell has been accused of recruiting and grooming young girls for the billionaire 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.
Despite numerous efforts for bail, Maxwell has been denied every time. If convicted, she could face up to 80 years in prison.
