Ghislaine Maxwell To Rely On “False Memory” Expert In Sex-Trafficking Trial

Jeffrey Epstein introduced victims to Trump

False memories are a strange phenomenon, and Ghislaine Maxwell seems to hope that they’ll stand up in court, as she faces charges for sex trafficking and enticing underage girls into sex acts with adult men. She’s charged in a case associated with Jeffrey Epstein, who died in prison awaiting his own charges.

According to Law & Crime, one of the four named victims, Annie Farmer, accuses Maxwell of sexual assault in the form of unwanted touching at Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico in 1996. Maxwell hopes to use an expert on how memories are formed and stored, University of California professor Elizabeth Loftus, to convince the jury that memories of an assault a decade old aren’t good evidence.

In the latest ruling, Maxwell’s request to have Loftus testify has been allowed, although it’s not yet clear exactly what testimony will be permitted.

According to CNN, charges Maxwell is facing accuse her of grooming children for sexual assault as recently as 2004, when she’s accused of helping Epstein victimize a 14-year-old child. She’s pled not guilty to all charges.

Maxwell isn’t the first Epstein associate to respond to allegations by attacking the accuser’s credibility. Attorney Alan Dershowitz, according to The Guardian, paid a private investigator to track one of Epstein’s accusers, claiming that she had “an obsession with marijuana” and was merely pursuing Epstein for financial gain. He dismissed his own accuser as a “prostitute” and has countersued her for her allegations, which he denies in strongest terms, even suing Netflix over the accuser’s testimony in a documentary on Epstein.
