Ghislaine Maxwell to offer $30M bail, will finally admit she’s married: reportshttps://nypost.com/2020/1...mit-shes-married-reports/
Ghislaine Maxwell will propose a nearly $30 million bail package in hopes of getting sprung from a Brooklyn lockup — and will finally admit she’s a married woman, according to reports.
The accused Jeffrey Epstein madam is expected to go to court in the coming days in a bid to be freed before Christmas, the Telegraph first reported.
Roughly $25 million of the hefty package will be backed by Maxwell’s rumored husband, tech CEO Scott Borgerson — whose identity the British heiress refused to reveal at an initial bail hearing over the summer.
The upcoming bail application will be the first time Maxwell will publicly acknowledge she is married, ABC News reported.
Friends told the Telegraph that Borgerson is devastated that Maxwell has remained jailed at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn since her July arrest on sex abuse charges.
Some $5 million of the bail amount will come from Maxwell’s brothers, Kevin and Ian Maxwell.
The 58-year-old daughter of disgraced media titan Robert Maxwell will request to be let out on house arrest and will agree to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, the Telegraph said.
She will also waive her rights to seek extradition from the UK and France, where she holds citizenship in addition to the US, ABC News reported.

Maxwell's legal team first signaled their intention to take a second crack at securing pretrial release for their client in a pair of letters to the court last month that were redacted to conceal the identities of the family members and friends of Maxwell who were offering to co-sign the bond.
"Ms. Maxwell and her counsel have assembled substantial information that was not available to present at the initial hearing [in July], as well as a comprehensive bail package co-signed by sureties who were unable to come forward at that time," wrote Christian Everdell, an attorney for Maxwell, on Nov. 25.
The proposed bail package, Everdell wrote, will include letters from family and friends that contain details that -- if made public -- would "invite identification and harassment of the sureties and other third parties, including minor children." The co-signers are "legitimately afraid" that if their names become public, they will be subjected to the "same relentless media scrutiny and threats that Ms. Maxwell has experienced for more than a year," Everdell wrote.
Also to be included, according to Everdell's letter, is a financial report prepared by a professional accounting firm that "provides a summary of Ms. Maxwell's financial condition from 2015-2020 and discloses all of her assets, all assets held in trust, and assets held by other family members."
At Maxwell's initial detention hearing in July, federal prosecutors conceded that they were not alleging that Maxwell presented a danger to society if released on bail, but argued that her finances were "opaque" and that she was the "very definition of a flight risk."
"She has three passports, large sums of money, extensive international connections, and absolutely no reason to stay in the United States to face a potential significant term of incarceration," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe.
If they let her out - she'll be gone. Irregardless of surities and ankle monitor.
