Ghislaine Maxwell’s fate is now in the hands of the jury after both the prosecution and defense gave closing arguments in the British socialite’s sex-trafficking trial.

The jury began deliberations Monday afternoon after receiving instructions from U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan. The jurors met for around an hour before Nathan excused them for the day. They will resume deliberations at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
