Two years after Jeffrey Epstein's suicide behind bars, a jury was selected Monday in New York City to determine a central question in the long-running sex trafficking case: Was his longtime companion, Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's puppet or accomplice? "We are not in the courtroom this week determining whether or not these victims were victims of sex crimes at the hands of Mr. Epstein," said Sarah Klein, a sexual abuse attorney at Manly, Stewart & Finaldi. "This trial is about Ms. Maxwell's alleged activity to enable Mr. Epstein to abuse these little kids." Twelve jurors and six alternates will hear Maxwell's case, starting with opening statements expected later in the day. They were picked from a pool of 40 to 60 potential jurors who made it through initial questioning. Maxwell — who once dated the financier — is accused of acting as Epstein's chief enabler, recruiting and grooming young girls for him to abuse. The charges against her stem from the allegations of four women who say she and Epstein victimized them as teens from 1994 to 2004.
