Ghislaine Maxwell, former Jeffrey Epstein gal pal, plead not guilty on all charges as a judge decides on whether or not to grant bail. Maxwell argued that the risk of coronavirus alone is reason enough for her to be granted bail. This according to the AP.

Maxwell, 58, was arrested on trafficking charges and Epstein victims are hoping that prosecutors will now be able to serve justice to those who became willingly involved with the pair and their alleged enterprise.

This has been tough to do as many of those who have been accused of associating with them are reportedly rich and powerful.

Maxwell is facing a maximum of 35 years in prison if convicted on all counts for which she is charged.

Her attorney's asked on Friday asked if she could be released on a bond of $5 million—arguing that she is not a flight risk and that her case and Epstein's should not be considered equivalent.

"Ghislaine Maxwell is not Jeffrey Epstein," her lawyers said. "Ms. Maxwell vigorously denies the charges, intends to fight them, and is entitled to the presumption of innocence," wrote her lawyers. "Far from 'hiding,' she has lived in the United States since 1991, has litigated civil cases arising from her supposed ties to Epstein, and has not left the country even once since Epstein's arrest a year ago, even though she was aware of the pending, and highly publicized, criminal investigation."

She has plead not guilty to charges of procuring young girls—some as young as 14—to be sexually abused by Epstein.

Maxwell was arrested at an expensive New Hampshire home and later made a court appearance by video-link. She is the daughter of Robert Maxwell, a late, disgraced British publishing tycoon.
