A Tuesday, December 7 court sitting in Manhattan, New York has heard how Socialite, Ghislaine Maxwell groped a 14-year-old girl’s bare breast and told the teen she “had a great body for pedophile Jeffrey Epstein,”
The third accuser to take the stand against Maxwell who testified under her first name, Carolyn — said she first met Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell, his alleged chief enabler, in Florida in the early 2000s when she was 13 years old.
The witness alleged Maxwell fondled her breasts when she was 14.
“I was upstairs setting up the massage table. And at that point I was kind of comfortable because I had been there so many times, that at that point I was getting fully nude,” said Carolyn.
“And she came in and felt my boobs and my hips and my buttocks and said that — that Mr. Epstein would — that I had a great body for Mr. Epstein and his friends.”
Carolyn, broke down on the witness stand as she told the court Virginia Roberts Giuffre introduced her to the couple in the early 2000s, who she said paid good money for massages.
It was around the time Carolyn dropped out of her Palm Beach, Fla. school in the seventh grade..Carolyn also revealed Maxwell knew her grandfather sexually abused her when she was 4 and she was from a broken home. She also revealed she used the money gotten from the massages to buy cocaine.
“I remember telling her that I had been raped and molested by my grandfather starting at the age of four,” she said.
Prosecutors allege that Maxwell and Epstein purposely looked for minors from broken homes to abuse.
Carolyn said the abuse involving Maxwell and Epstein continued until she was 18. Maxwell often called her to schedule massages for Epstein, according to her testimony. The couple also told her to bring friends, Carolyn said.
She says Maxwell even tried in vain to convince the teen, who didn’t have a passport, to fly to Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean.
Carolyn described in excruciating detail of how she first met Epstein upstairs by the massage table with Giuffre — prosecutors even brought the furniture to show jurors.
“He brushed his teeth and then laid face down on the massage table,” said Carolyn.
Carolyn says she wasn’t forced to participate further than the massage the first time. But that she sat and watched Giuffre have intercourse with the Epstein before he paid the girls a few hundred dollars and allowed them to leave.
Carolyn said Maxwell, Epstein, and his assistant, Sarah Kellen, would book her for massages at least 100 times throughout her teen years. She said Maxwell was present at least three of those times, including the groping incident.
Carolyn provided graphic testimony of what would happen in the massage room, where two friends of Epstein once saw her naked, she said.
“Something sexual happened every single time,” the witness said, telling the captive-looking jury Epstein would “turn over and start masturbating until he ejaculated” at the end of every single massage.
When she turned 18, Carolyn said Epstein started inquiring from her if she had younger friends who could come and massage him.
“And that’s when I realized I was too old,” Carolyn recalled.
