Ghislaine Maxwell’s high-society days are over as she faces years in a prison that’s likely to be harsher than the so-called “Camp Cupcake” prison where Martha Stewart served.

Maxwell, the socialite ex-girlfriend of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, was convicted Wednesday on five counts tied to sexual abuse, including the most serious charge of sex-trafficking of a minor, which carries a maximum sentence of 40 years.
