Ransome has claimed that she was raped three times while trying to find her way off of Epstein's private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands. She is not set to testify during the case.

According to the New York Times, Maxwell has been charged with one count of enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, one count of transportation of a minor with intent to engage in illegal sex acts, one count of sex trafficking of a minor, and three counts of conspiracy.

Her brother, Ian Maxwell also told the news show that he would ask his sister's alleged victims, "Can you look me in the eye and tell me honestly that Ghislaine Maxwell was responsible for your abuse? Or was it Jeffrey Epstein? Who should be here. Not my sister."
