British socialite convicted of sex trafficking
Ghislaine Noelle Marion Maxwell is a British former socialite, convicted of sex trafficking and other offences connected with the financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Maxwell is a naturalised US citizen but retains citizenship of the UK and France.
