In late December 2021, Ghislaine Maxwell, a 60-year-old British socialite, was convicted of child sex trafficking and several other offences in connection with the grooming and sexual abuse of underage girls. Maxwell, who conspired with convicted child sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, is attempting to secure a retrial.
Sentencing for Maxwell's case (U.S. v. Maxwell, 20-cr-330) has been set for 28 June 2022, according to a Friday filing in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York.
The court also moved to delay the preparation of a pre-sentence investigation report until April 2022, according to US District Judge Alison Nathan's filing.
Maxwell is facing up to 65 years in prison.
Prosecutors previously requested in a 10 January letter that the sentencing date take place "approximately three to four months from today's date".

Can Ghislaine Maxwell Win Epstein Sex Trafficking Case if She Gets Retrial?
Lawyers for the convicted child sex trafficker are attempting to secure a new trial after it was revealed that a juror — self-identified as Scotty David — may have swayed the votes of fellow jury members after disclosing his own experience of sexual abuse.

"When I shared that, they were able to sort of come around on, they were able to come around on the memory aspect of the sexual abuse", said the juror, a 35-year-old resident of the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York.

US prosecutors have told the court that, in the event that the defendant is not granted a retrial, the government is prepared to drop two perjury charges against the convicted child sex trafficker.
The two perjury charges come in connection with a 2016 deposition in Virginia Giuffre's defamation lawsuit. No date has been set for the aforementioned case.
