**BREAKING** – Ghislaine Maxwell sentenced to 20 years in jail

In a judgement given in the Manhattan federal court, Ghislaine Maxwell has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

According to RTE, Maxwell received the sentence for her part in the sexual abuse of teenage girls by the now deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein.

The sentencing comes after Maxwell was convicted in December of helping to locate young girls who would then be abused by Epstein, crimes that took place between 1994 and 2004.

Before she was sentenced, Maxwell gave a statement where she apologised to the victims and said that meeting Jeffrey Epstein was the greatest regret of her relief.

Given that Maxwell is now 60 years old, there is a good possibility that she will spend the rest of her life in prison.
