(AbsoluteNews.com) – Convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell faced a judge on July 14 for her arraignment. She was ultimately denied bail after she pleaded not guilty. We also learned she has a heavy hitter on her defense team.
Maxwell has four lawyers on her current team, including Christian Everdell. Prior to his current job at Cohen & Gresser, he spent nearly a decade as an Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) where he was a member of the Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit. During his time working for the federal government, Everdell was awarded the True American Hero Award for his work in taking down Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, former head of the violent Sinaloa cartel.
Everdell was mentioned in the arraignment request earlier this month.

Why is this important? The SDNY is prosecuting Maxwell and after spending nearly a decade there, Everdell knows how the prosecutors from that office work. There’s also no doubt he has connections there. Did the socialite hire him in the hope that he’ll be able to cut a deal?
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
