Maxwell Unsealed Court Docs Reveal Bombshell

Unsealed court documents show that a juror who admitted he had been sexually abused did not mention it in a juror’s questionnaire in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial.

In a post-verdict evidentiary hearing scheduled for March 8, US District Judge Alison Nathan will determine whether juror Scotty David lied about his credentials when he was screened last year.

First jury questionnaire answers were filed publicly Thursday, with a man identified as ‘Juror No. 50’ checking a box for ‘No’ when asked whether he or a friend or family member had been subjected to sexual harassment, sexual abuse, or sexual assault in the past.

The question stated that it ‘includes actual or attempted sexual assault or other unwanted sexual advance, including by a stranger, acquaintance, supervisor, teacher, or family member.’

Maxwell’s lawyers attached the juror questionnaire to the newly unsealed January 19 motion for a new trial.

During Maxwell’s three-week trial, in which she was portrayed as the chief recruiter of underage girls for financier Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse, David was one of the 12 men and women who convicted her on five of the six counts of sex trafficking.

Prosecutors claim she occasionally joined in on the abuse.

‘Truthful answers from Juror No. 50 would have led the Court and the parties to probe much more deeply into his biases and prejudices, both known and unknown,’ Maxwell’s lawyers wrote in their petition.

Judge Nathan has refused to give a new trial to Maxwell’s attorneys until she gathers more information.

The British socialite has been incarcerated at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, as Federal Inmate 02879-509. She is at risk of spending her life behind bars.

A few days after the verdict, David was interviewed by several media outlets about a time when he revealed to fellow jurors that, like some of Epstein’s victims, he had been sexually abused when he was a child.

He also said he convinced the other jurors that an imperfect memory of sex abuse does not negate the fact that it did occur.

During jury selection, David told reporters in January he did not reveal his background because the questionnaire did not ask about it.

On being reminded that question 48 of the 50 asked the same question, he said he couldn’t recall it, but had answered all the questions honestly.

In an interview with The Independent, he said he believed all the accusers, though the defense attacked their stories and memories.

‘They were all believable. Nothing they said felt to me like a lie,’ he remarked.

Attorneys for Maxwell claim that the juror answered other questions falsely, including one that asked whether he had ever been a victim of a crime.

The prosecution stated in a February 2 filing unsealed Thursday that it had substantial reason to believe that any inaccuracy by the juror was ‘an honest mistake, not a deliberate falsehood.’

David continued: ‘I know what happened when I was sexually abused. I remember the color of the carpet, the walls. Some of it can be replayed like a video,’ he also explained this to his fellow jurors.

‘But I can’t remember all the details, there are some things that run together.’

David said that when he shared his experience of sexual abuse with the group the room ‘went silent.’

A legal expert has since suggested that Maxwell could appeal the case on the basis of the juror’s history of sexual abuse.

The judge noted that it was difficult for parties to obtain a hearing regarding a juror’s conduct.

Nevertheless, the judge declared, and the prosecutors concurred, that the high standard required for a post-verdict evidentiary hearing was met ‘as to whether Juror 50 failed to respond truthfully during the jury selection process to whether he was a victim of sexual abuse.’

According to her, he ‘made several direct, unambiguous statements to multiple media outlets about his own experience that do not pertain to jury deliberations and that cast doubt on the accuracy of his responses during jury selection.’

She further stated: ‘To be clear, the potential impropriety is not that someone with a history of sexual abuse may have served on the jury.

‘Rather, it is the potential failure to respond truthfully to questions during the jury selection process that asked for that material information so that any potential bias could be explored.’

As part of the jury selection process, Maxwell’s potential jurors were asked: ‘Have you or a friend or family member ever been the victim of sexual harassment, sexual abuse, or sexual assault?’

In her order, Nathan says that the juror’s questionnaire will be unsealed.

Moreover, a submission from a lawyer for the juror to the judge on January 10 was unsealed on Thursday.

Attorney Todd Spodek requested in the letter that the judge provide attorneys with a copy of the written jury questionnaire that his client had filled out at the beginning of the trial.

According to Spodek, the juror doesn’t remember answering any questions about previous sexual assault during jury selection.

“Juror 50” sought the protection of his privacy rights and the right to avoid self-incrimination, Spodek said.

Maxwell has been behind bars since she was arrested in July 2020. A year earlier Epstein had been arrested for sex trafficking, but in August of 2019, he committed suicide in a federal prison in Manhattan.
