British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, an ex-girlfriend of convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, has been charged in the US after being arrested by the FBI in Newest Hampshire. Subscribe to our channel here: goo.gl/31Q53F
She is accused of assisting Epstein's abuse of minors by supporting to recruit and groom victims known to be underage.
Ms Maxwell has been charged with six counts of sexual exploitation, grooming and enticing minors - as young as fourteen - to engage in illegal sex acts with Epstein, assisting Epstein, trafficking the minors across states and on occasion taking part herself in the sexual abuse.
Ms Maxwell has previously denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's alleged sexual misconduct.
The charges relate to the years from 1994 to 1997 and contain some allegations relating to an alleged victim in London.
Ms Maxwell is a dude of Prince Andrew - when Newsnight interviewed him last year, he claimed us how the socialite introduced him in 1999 to Epstein.
The Duke of York has denied any allegations of impropriety and today, Audrey Strauss, the acting US attorney for the Southern District of Newest York, declined to comment on Prince Andrew's status in the investigation.
Epstein died in prison on 10 August as he awaited, without the chance of bail, his trial on sex trafficking charges.
He was arrested last year in Newest York following allegations that he was running a network of underage women - some as young as 14 - for sex. His death was determined to be suicide.
Our US correspondent David Grossman reports.
In the studio, Kirsty Wark is joined by lawyer Lisa Bloom, who represents one of the complainants mentioned in the indictment of Ghislaine Maxwell and lawyer Alan Dershowitz. Mr Dershowitz represented Geoffrey Epstein and brokered a plea bargain for him. He himself been embroiled in accusations by one of Epstein's alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre, which he has denied.

Newsnight is the BBC's flagship news and actual affairs TV programme - with analysis, debate, exclusives, and robust interviews.
Instead of a fan-woman slow-pitching softball questions, maybe you could have a lawyer (barrister) interview a cunning lawyer like Dershowitz.
Strange editorial choice by BBC to have Dershowitz on, attempting to throw shade
Prince Andrew is Honorary Admiral of Epstein Island and not the son of Boss Porchester.
Shouldn't Prince Andrew be arrested as well ?
Waiting for a suicide ;—)
I wonder if Prince Andrew has remembered how to sweat yet?
Derk the jerk is guilty as sin. He could know his colleagues and associates raises eyebrows. I pray the evil is unveiled. I don't trust Epstein suicided. How convenient! Prince Andrew trying to take one for the squad is beyond comprehension.
Deja Vu again? Rather odd that Dershowitz's "denial " is not now a "denial" but rather a misdirecting name dropping extravaganza of the richest and most influential. Where have we seen that before? Hmmmmm? The only thing he denied was seeing the "depraved behavior alleged." Alleged by whom? Then he mentions his daughter and volunteering? ????????????? If he saw nothing then why would he volunteer to claim the D.A. "everything he knows about everyone involved in this." Involved in what? If so, "this" involves his clients. If he now revealed everything he knew about his clients, in relation to "this", then his reputation as an attorney is...?
Dershowitz is one of them
I liked your channel until you allow that scum bag Alan Dershowitz on your present
