In the sex trafficking case, a “false memory” expert who testified in the OJ case “will be a defense witness for Ghislaine Maxwell.”

According to reports, an expert witness who testified for OJ Simpson and Harvey Weinstein will testify for the defense in Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial.

Ghislaine, the former lover of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, will be charged with sex trafficking conspiracy and sex trafficking of a minor later this year.

Professor Elizabeth Lotus, a memory expert, may be called upon to challenge the testimony of alleged Maxwell victims during the trial, according to The New York Times.

She is still detained in New York, where she was arrested in July 2020, but she denies all allegations of misconduct leveled against her.

Prof Lotus, a “false memory” expert, is best known for his testimony in the 1995 trial of American footballer OJ Simpson.

She investigates how incorrect information can tamper with a person’s memory.

“I believe accused people deserve some modicum of support as well,” she told The Los Angeles Times.

Meanwhile, psychiatrist Dr. Park Diez, who has previously examined the sanity of the cannibal serial killer and the Unabomber, is one of the eight potential expert witnesses on the list.

Maxwell claimed a prison guard verbally threatened her as she made her sixth bail application yesterday, according to reports.

When they were alone during the hearing, she claims a guard said to her, “You think you are special? You are not special.”

“Keep in mind that you are in custody and that the judge is unconcerned about you.”

Maxwell’s lawyer, Bobbi Sternheim, claims that her treatment was “disturbing” and that she should be released.

According to Sternheim, her prison conditions are comparable to Hannibal Lecter’s surveillance in ‘The Silence of the Lambs.’

Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial began on Wednesday, with the first of 600 jurors filing into a New York courtroom as she tried for a sixth time to get bail.

They are being whittled down to a panel of 12 people by answering questions about their availability and whether or not they can serve over the course of two days.

Jurors will be asked about their opinions on the MeToo movement as well as whether they are prejudiced against people who live “luxurious lifestyles,” according to a draft of the jury questionnaire.

In the meantime, Virginia Giuffre, Prince Andrew’s sex accuser, is facing a £15 million lawsuit.

Ms Giuffre allegedly defamed artist Rina Oh, who was an Epstein victim.
