The judge who will determine Ghislaine Maxwell’s prison term for sex trafficking and other crimes is letting more accusers speak at her sentencing. 

US Circuit Judge Alison Nathan on Monday ruled that three women who say they were victimized by Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein but didn’t testify at her trial can speak at the hearing in Manhattan on Tuesday.
