Jeffrey Epstein's former girlfriend arrested by FBI.
Ghislaine Maxwell, the former girlfriend and long-time associate of the late accused sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, has been arrested by the FBI on charges she helped procure underage sex partners for the financier.
An indictment made public on Thursday said Maxwell, who lived for years with Epstein and was his frequent travel companion on trips around the world, facilitated Epstein's crimes by "helping Epstein to recruit, groom and ultimately abuse" girls as young as 14.
It also said she participated in the sexual abuse.

Epstein, 66, was awaiting trial on charges of trafficking minors when he died in August 2019 in a New York City federal prison.
Maxwell has, for years, been accused by many women of recruiting them to give Epstein massages, during which they were pressured into sex.
Those accusations, until now, never resulted in criminal charges.
Maxwell, 58, was arrested in New Hampshire, where the FBI said it had been keeping tabs on her.
