Epstein victims react to Ghislaine Maxwell verdict

The sex-trafficking conviction Wednesday of Ghislaine Maxwell, pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein’s “right hand” and associate, was long overdue, the pair’s victims said.

“This is a great day for all of the Epstein and Maxwell survivors,” attorney David Boise, who represents about a dozen of the women.

“This is a verdict that is a victory for those survivors,” he said. “They deserve the credit. The vindication is theirs.”

“The survivors had to survive not only the initial sexual abuse, but the abuse in the media that Epstein and Maxwell subjected them to,” Boise added. “This was a long time coming.”

Lisa Bloom, who represents eight of Epstein’s victims, said she was elated at the verdict.

“My clients and I were moved to tears that this day has finally come,” attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents eight Epstein victims, told The Post.

“She got to walk free on this earth for 60 years,” Bloom added. “May she never walk free again.”
