Ghislaine Maxwell’s attorneys on Friday asked for her release on $5 million bond, arguing that she has maintained communication with prosecutors and is at risk for COVID-19 if she remains confined in Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center.

Maxwell, the longtime confidante of Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested July 2 in New Hampshire and charged with helping the deceased financier run a sex trafficking ring involving girls as young as 14. Epstein died by suicide in Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center in August.
