Several of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators, including recruiters, sexual partners and friends are set to drop the dime on Ghislaine Maxwell at her trial later this year, according to recent court filings analyzed by the Daily Mail.
Prosecutors announced in the filing that materials presented at trial will include ‘any co-conspirator statements,’ which the Mail says is a “major sign that one of Epstein’s inner circle has turned state’s witness.” What’s more, they agreed to turn over ‘the identity of any unindicted co-conspirator’ nine weeks before the trial, which is set to begin in November.
Meanwhile, Maxwell admitted in a filing seeking to dismiss the case that one accuser was “encouraged to recruit other females to provide massages to Epstein.”
The filings strongly indicate that some of the four women who were named as potential ‘co-conspirators’ under Epstein’s sweetheart plea deal in 2008, under which he served just 15 months in jail for having sex with children, could face off against Maxwell in court.
The women in question have been accused of being Epstein’s ‘recruiters, groomers, sexual partners and friends’ and have almost always pleaded the fifth amendment when questioned during depositions.
They are Sarah Kellen, 40, who is accused of having a rolodex of women she would call up for massages at Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.
Lesley Groff, 53, is said to have been Epstein’s executive assistant for 20 years and said in a 2005 interview that she had such a tight bond with him ‘I know what he is thinking’.

In a late Friday night court filing, prosecutors and Maxwell’s defense submitted their own preferred timetables and logistics for the trial. According to prosecutors, materials during the trial “will include testifying witness statements, which themselves will also include any co-conspirator statements about which witnesses may testify at trial.”
Prosecutors “only intend to introduce co-conspirator statements either through the testimony of witnesses or in the exhibits, which will be marked before trial,” and will include documentary statements about co-conspirators “e.g., emails between Epstein and any number of thousands of persons,” per the filing:…Continue Reading
