Ghislain Maxwell with EpsteinA prosecutor called Ghislaine Maxwell and deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein “partners in crime” as Maxwell's sex trafficking trial began in New York on Monday.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lara Pomerantz, who delivered the prosecution's opening statement, said that Maxwell and Epstein worked together to lure in girls as young as 14 to "so-called massages," The Associated Press reported. The victims were given money and gifts as Maxwell “helped normalize abusive sexual conduct” by befriending them, taking them shopping and asking about their personal lives in an effort to put them at ease, the prosecution added.

“She was in on it from the start. The defendant and Epstein lured their victims with a promise of a bright future, only to sexually exploit them,” Pomerantz said, per the AP.
