U.S. appeals court reject Ghislaine Maxwell’s bail request

British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell appears during her arraignment hearing on a new indictment at Manhattan Federal Court in New York City, New York, U.S. in this courtroom sketch.

A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday rejected Ghislaine Maxwell’s request for bail, as she prepares for trial on charges she procured teenage girls for the late financier Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse.

In a brief order, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that to the extent Maxwell is being deprived of sleep in a Brooklyn jail, which her lawyer said is impeding her defense, she should seek relief from the judge overseeing her criminal case.
