Ghislaine Maxwell was in the process of divorcing husband Scott Borgerson when she was arrested


Ghislaine Maxwell was in the process of divorcing her husband Scott Borgerson when she was arrested.

According to documents released Friday, Maxwell claimed her marriage to Borgerson would keep her in the United States and reduce her aviation risk status if released on bail.

But the new documents show that they did in fact divorce, which "undermines their claim that their marriage is a bond that would hold them in the United States".

"The fact that the defendant's spouse has only now come forward to support the defendant should be of little consequence, as he refused to come forward at the time of her arrest," the records say.

This comes after it was revealed that Borgerson was reportedly "devastated". Maxwell has been behind bars and will raise $ 25 million in security for his wife, who will forfeit if she escapes trial.

According to the records, Maxwell's bail request "does not establish strong enough ties with the United States to prevent them from escaping."

“While a friend's desire to avoid advertising may be understandable, a spouse's desire to distance themselves in this way – especially when combined with the defendant's inconsistent statements about the state of their relationship – undermines their claim that their marriage is a Bond is what they would hold in the United States, "they reveal.

"Although the defendant now claims that her marriage would keep her in the United States, her motion does not address the clearly inconsistent statements she made to Pretrial Services at the time of her arrest as the defendant, as documented in the Pretrial Services Report said she was in the process of getting a divorce from her husband.

The women Maxwell allegedly abused Jeffrey Epstein have asked a judge not to allow her to be released from prison before trial.

"Given this strong incentive to flee, all three of the victims listed on the indictment have asked the government to tell the court that they will continue to apply for the defendant's detention," the file said.

In addition, under the Law on the Rights of Victims of Crime, one of the victims made a written statement asking the Court to refuse the bail attached as Appendix A. This unanimous view of the victims reflects three related reasons why this factor is so strong in favor of imprisonment. "

One victim, Annie Farmer, submitted a passionate letter asking the judge not to give Maxwell bail.

“I'm not just writing this for myself, but for all of the other girls and young women who have fallen victim to Maxwell,” Farmer writes. "Ghislaine Maxwell sexually abused me as a child, and the government has a responsibility to ensure she stands trial for her crimes."

“I don't think this is going to happen, or that any of the women she exploits will see justice if she is released on bail. She led a privileged life and abused her position of power to live beyond the rules. Escaping the country to flee again would fit their long history of antisocial behavior. & # 39;

She continues to call Maxwell a "psychopath" and says that she "disregards and violates the rights of others".

"I am writing this not just for myself, but for all the other girls and young women who have fallen victim to Maxwell," Farmer writes in her letter. "Ghislaine Maxwell sexually abused me as a child, and the government has a responsibility to ensure she stands trial for her crimes."

Maxwell's finances were also questioned. Prosecutors said on the file that Maxwell had spent the past five years stripping the majority of her property from her name by transferring it to her spouse through trusts.

"The pattern suggests that the defendant used the asset transfer process as a means to hide her true wealth."

The file lists Maxwell's real estate, approximately $ 3.4 million in assets, under her own name – a number that omits the fortune she transferred to Borgerson.

Maxwell's attorneys requested a bail hearing on December 21st to get the 58-year-old out of office in time for Christmas.

It follows the Federal Bureau of Prisons, delivering a letter to Judge Nathan insisting that Maxwell be treated like all inmates at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, despite Maxwell's repeated complaints about her conditions in Hellhole Prison.

They even detailed how her 134 pound weight fluctuates between just 2 pounds.

Maxwell has been in custody since July 14 when Judge Nathan, sitting in federal court in Manhattan, ruled that she posed "a significant actual aviation risk."

She was arrested by the FBI on $ 1 million worth of $ 1 million worth of land in Bradford, New Hampshire, which she bought for cash through an identity-protecting company.

The British celebrity is accused of procuring girls aged 14 for Epstein to mistreat and accuse them in a separate civil case.

She denies the allegations, for which she sits in prison for up to 35 years.

For the past five months, Maxwell's lawyers and her family have started what is known as Operation Get Ghislaine Out because they feel they are being treated unfairly.

However, according to a letter filed earlier this month by the Federal Prison Office, this is not the case.

The lawyers explain how she fed three meals a day, became commissioner and "has access to recreation rooms, social calling, television, showers, legal phone calls, emails, computers and discovery materials".

They claim her weight was constant at 134 pounds and she is in "good health".

When there is a hearing, it is not even clear if it will be before Christmas.

Previously filed documents with the court stated that Maxwell intends to file documents detailing her financial affairs over the past five years, prepared by an accounting firm.

She will also be filing letters on behalf of family and friends, including some acting as bailouts, to get her out.

Maxwell faces a steep bar to get bail, and in her final attempt, Judge Nathan said the "risks are too great" to be released.

Judge Nathan said that "no combination of conditions can reasonably ensure her presence in court" because she had the means and motive to flee the US.

In her decision, she said that Maxwell "not only has significant financial resources, but has shown the sophistication to hide those resources and yourself".
