Maxwell was arrested Thursday morning in the small town of Bradford, N.H., where she had been residing in a million-dollar estate.
The 58-year-old appeared virtually before a federal magistrate in nearby Concord Thursday afternoon and waived her right to a detention hearing, clearing the way for her transfer to New York. She was ordered held without bail on multiple sex abuse charges, including conspiracy to entice minors to engage in sexual acts.
Maxwell holds citizenship in France, the country of her birth, she likely would not have been extradited from the European nation had she gone there.
Maxwell, the daughter of the late British media magnate Robert Maxwell, had been accustomed to living in luxury.
The Sun reported:
GHISLAINE Maxwell will be “fully cooperating” with the FBI in its child sex probe – and some of the world’s most powerful people, including Prince Andrew, might be “very worried,” Jeffrey Epstein’s former mentor Steven Hoffenberg has claimed.
Speaking to The Sun, Epstein’s former employer Steven Hoffenberg said the paedophile’s ex-girlfriend Maxwell ‘knows everything’ and will ‘totally co-operate’ after her arrest.
Hoffenberg, a convicted fraudster who employed Epstein at Towers Financial in the 1980s, said ‘there’s a lot of people very worried’ about what Maxwell could reveal. ‘She’s going to cooperate and be very important. Andrew is definitely, definitely concerned,’ Hoffenberg said.
US attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents one of Maxwell’s accusers, said ‘all others accused of enabling Jeffrey Epstein’s predations must immediately be brought to justice as well’.
‘Maxwell’s brutal, ruthless behaviour caused my client tremendous pain,’ Ms Bloom said in a statement, adding that she and her client applauded the socialite’s ‘long overdue arrest’.
One Epstein accuser, Michelle Licata, has previously voiced hopes that prosecutors looking into Epstein were ‘going to start digging into his life… and start pulling out this spider web of people that were related to it’, according to the New York Post.
Former federal prosecutor Jessica Roth told Bloomberg: ‘There is no way for prosecutors to present a case against her without going into all the evidence they had against Epstein, because the charges here are intertwined.
‘The original indictment against Jeffrey Epstein made it clear that he didn’t act alone and that the government had evidence that other people were also involved.’
If convicted on all counts, Maxwell faces 35 years behind bars at a maximum. It would mean she’d be 93 by the time she’d be released.
Hoffenberg, a former owner of the New York Post, says: “She was convinced she wasn’t getting arrested, I speak to her spokesperson all the time.
“She’s definitely someone who I understand quite well, I’m able to articulate how she feels right now, the tragedy she’s involved in now is horrible.
“If they keep her in prison, she’ll crack in two seconds. She’s not able to take that sort of cruel punishment, prison is too tough and hard, she’ll have to be in solitary confinement, and she’ll snap.”
Tucker Carlson had a few words on the topic also:

The staff members who worked in Jeffrey Epstein’s New York City mansion for close to a decade are seen posing alongside Hollywood stars, political heavyweights and even a few royals.
Images obtained by DailyMail.com show housekeepers Jun-Lyn and Jojo with Prince Andrew, his ex-wife Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson and even Bill Clinton.
There are actually two photos of Clinton, one of which shows the former president with both Jun-Lyn and her husband and another that shows only her husband.
Will the truth finally be revealed?
