Jeffrey Epstein’s former confidante Ghislaine Maxwell made her first appearance in front of a federal judge Tuesday, one week after she was arrested on charges that she recruited underage girls for Epstein to sexually abuse. Maxwell pleaded not guilty, and asked to be released on bail as she awaits trial. In a dramatic move, one of Maxwell’s alleged victims, Annie Farmer, spoke by phone and asked the judge to keep her behind bars. Maxwell’s attorneys asked for $5 million bail and house arrest in New York. They argued that Maxwell is not a flight risk.
