British socialite GHISLAINE MAXWELL, an associate of the late disgraced financier JEFFREY EPSTEIN, has been arrested by the FBI, in the U.S. state of New Hampshire.
Maxwell, who is a former girlfriend of Epstein, was taken into custody on Thursday (03Jun20) morning, and she is due to appear in a federal court later, NBC News reports, citing two unnamed sources.
Her attorneys have fought allegations she was involved in Epstein's abuse of dozens of young girls for years by denying them in civil lawsuits.
The charges she is facing are unknown at present, but they are understood to have been filed by the Manhattan District Attorney.
