Maritime expert Scott Borgerson has been spotted ‘walking Ghislaine’s dog’
As Ghislaine Maxwell faces a mid-2021 trial on charges that she recruited three underage teen girls, — as young as fourteen — to for sex with Jeffrey Epstein, her attorneys have claimed that her private jailhouse calls with them are being recorded illegally, The U.S. Sun reports.
These attorneys claim that such recordings preclude the 58-year-old Ghislaine Maxwell from obtaining a fair trial as federal prosecutors seek to throw the book at her for her alleged role as a a “madam” in Epstein’s teen-sex-trafficking enterprise.
Epstein was arrested on sex-trafficking charges in July 2019. The following month, he committed suicide by hanging himself in a federal jail cell in Manhattan. Ghislaine Maxwell, who according to a recent report once expressed a desire to recruit Paris Hilton for Epstein, was arrested in early July of this year on charges of enticement of teenage minors, sex trafficking, and perjury — all of which she denies. Unable to get bail, she’ll likely be stuck in her own federal jail cell, in Brooklyn, for the next 11 months or so as she awaits trial.
While at first Maxwell, 58, was put on suicide watch, her jail-cell constrictions have since been eased. But according to the laments in a recent court filing from her attorneys, she is still being held in “uniquely onerous conditions.”
“These prison guards constantly observe Ms Maxwell and take notes on her every activity, including her phone conversations with defense counsel,” the filing continued.
Under New York State law, confidential communication between an attorney and his or her client is protected against disclosure.
“Her cell is [still] searched multiple times a day and she has been forced to undergo numerous body scans,” the filing about Ghislaine Maxwell’s jailhouse conditions as she awaits trial for recruiting underage teens for sex with Epstein. “It has become apparent that the [Bureau of Prison]’s treatment of Ms Maxwell is a reaction to the circumstances surrounding the pretrial detention and death of Mr. Epstein. As a result of what occurred with Mr. Epstein, Ms. Maxwell is being treated worse than other similarly situated pretrial detainees. has never been suicidal and was never diagnosed as exhibiting risk factors for suicide.”
Meanwhile, in matrimonial (or mock-matrimonial?), non-teen-sex-slave-recruitment news about Maxwell, The New York Times’s Style section muses about the speculation that Ghislaine recently married the maritime expert and Coast Guard veteran Scott Borgerson, 44.
By the time Ghislaine Maxwell was fighting allegations that she had procured underage women to provide sexual services for her ex-boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein, there was a new man in her life. His name was Scott Borgerson. Ms. Maxwell, according to her friend Christopher Mason, described him sometime around 2015 as a “Navy SEAL,” though he was actually a former Coast Guard officer. Associating herself with Mr. Borgerson — the founder of a maritime investments company called CargoMetrics and a former fellow in residence at the Council on Foreign Relations, where he wrote about oceanic issues — added to her credibility [as an aspiring ocean conversationalist].
According to the Times, Maxwell sought an association with Borgerson as a part of her attempt to reinvent and mythologize herself while the investigation into Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes heated up in recent years.
At a recent hearing related to Ghislaine Maxwell’s recruitment of teenagers for sex with Epstein, federal prosectuors were surprised to learn from her attorneys that she was married. While Borgerson has denied ever marrying Maxwell, there has been much speculation, grounded in evidence, that the two are indeed husband and wife.
The Times, which holds out the possibility that Maxwell is married to someone else, has learned from two sources close to the couple that Maxwell and Borgerson have, as has been widely reported, spent time living together in a mansion in the quaint coastal town of Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts, since 2016. He was even recently spotted walking her dog, a champion-bred vizsla.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that one of the women who have alleged that they were sexually victimized by Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell has filed a $25 million suit against the late financier’s estate, claiming that he abused her throughout her teens.
The unnamed woman, who claims Epstein recruited her aged 13 and abused her for five years, says the amount [of money] is to reflect ‘significant past and future pain and suffering’.
The sex-abuse grooming process, the lawsuit claims, ramped up as the woman, then an underage teen, went shopping with Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. He would insist on picking out her clothes, including little-girl’s cotton undies that subjugated her into a pedophillic fetish role.
The sexual abuse itself began soon after, and eventually escalated to violent rapes at Epstein’s various lavish homes across the country.
Also, the New York Post reports that new photos have surfaced of Ghislaine Maxwell on Epstein’s “pedo island,” cavorting with modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel, who is also suspected to have recruited young women and teens for sex with Epstein.
Bombshell new photos obtained by The Post show Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex-victim recruiters — Ghislaine Maxwell and modeling-agency pal Jean-Luc Brunel — romping together on the hedge-funder’s “Pedophile Island.’’ The stunning snaps offer an inside look at the pair’s this-close relationship — and a slice of life on Epstein’s disturbing paradise-turned-orgy isle. It’s not clear who took the 2003 photos on Epstein’s Caribbean Little St. James Island — which was dubbed “Pedophile Island’’ by locals because of all the girls and young women the financier would allegedly fly to it on his private jet to sexually please him and his powerful pals. But a source who was a guest on the island along with Maxwell and Brunel when the photos were taken told Britain’s The Sun, “Ghislaine and Jean-Luc were very close friends.
