Jury In Ghislaine Maxwell Sex Trafficking Trial Begins Deliberations

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- The jury in the sex trafficking trial of Ghislaine Maxwell began its deliberations Monday.

During closing arguments, defense lawyers for the one-time British socialite told the jury Maxwell is innocent of charges linked to Jeffrey Epstein.

Prosecutors slammed the notion, calling Maxwell a dangerous predator who helped Epstein abuse teenage girls.

Maxwell did not testify.

If convicted, Maxwell could face up to 80 years in prison.
