Lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged “s*x slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre were ordered on Wednesday to destroy the evidence in his case against Ghislaine Maxwell – because attorney Alan Dershowitz was also denied access to potentially explosive information.

Manhattan federal court judge Loretta Preska said

Manhattan federal court judge Loretta Preska said she was “concerned” to learn during the oral discussion last week that Giuffre’s lawyers at Cooper & Kirk had received sealed records of her trial. for a long time it was established against Maxwell, who, according to Giuffre, recruited her. fucking Epstein and his friends when she was a minor.
