Ghislaine Maxwell has a secret husband whose name she has refused to reveal, prosecutors said Tuesday at the accused madam’s bail hearing.
“In addition to failing to describe in any way the absence of proposed co-signers of a bond, the defendant also makes no mention whatsoever about the financial circumstances or assets of her spouse whose identity she declined to provide to Pretrial Services,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe told Manhattan federal Judge Alison Nathan during a video conference.
Maxwell will remain behind bars until trial after the Vritish socialite was denied bail as a flight risk rather than face charges she recruited girls for the financier to sexually abuse more than two decades ago, AP reports.
Her lawyer, Mark S. Cohen, told the judge Maxwell was clad only in her pajamas and had followed security protocol calling for her to retreat to her room if any disturbance occurred outside.
Judge Nathan refused to set bail for Maxwell, returning her to the Metropolitan Detention Center pending trial, which was set down for next July.
