Ghislaine Maxwell, who is facing 80 years in jail, wants to be arraigned on new sex trafficking charges in-person. She also requests her family be given time to make travel arrangements to attend.
But her family is saying she’s being treated like the iconic horror film character Hannibal Lecter.
The hearing was originally scheduled for April 16 in New York City.
This is a dramatic shift from previous proceedings where she was not required to appear in person for her arraignment hearing due to covid-19 restrictions.
For Maxwell, the hearing is just a placeholder for what's to come: an all out legal game of cat and mouse with prosecutors based off evidence in law enforcement’s possession for years.
One possible issue at the hearing: prosecutors might try to use their late timing of the new charges as tactical gamesmanship.
