Ghislaine Maxwell won't be home for Christmas — or her 60th birthday.
Jurors in her sex trafficking trial asked to be released for the long holiday weekend and Judge Alison Nathan granted their request.
Maxwell, whose birthday falls on Dec. 25, is on trial for allegedly recruiting and grooming teenage girls to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein and his high-profile network of friends.
The jury began deliberating Monday after six hours of closing arguments and a rebuttal.
GHISLAINE MAXWELL'S LAWYERS QUESTION CREDIBILITY AND MOTIVES OF FOUR ALLEGED VICTIMS IN CLOSING ARGUMENTS IN SEX TRAFFICKING TRIAL
The British socialite pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts, from "transporting a minor for the purposes of criminal sexual activity" to "conspiring to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts" to perjury related to statements she made 2016.
She also categorically denied accusations from four women who said they were teenagers — one as young as 13 — when Maxwell conspired with the wealthy New York money manager to prey on them.
Maxwell's defense attorney said she had been vilified and unjustly accused by prosecutors and an angry public who wants to see someone punished for Epstein's crimes.
Epstein was arrested in July 2019 and charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy for allegedly abusing girls as young as 14. He pleaded not guilty to the charges before he was found dead in his Manhattan prison cell in August. His death was ruled as a suicide by the New York City medical examiner's office.
