Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyers are asking for a new trial after it was announced that at least one juror did not disclose that he had been the victim of sexual abuse. There can be up to four jurors. The identified juror, number 50, gave several interviews and revealed that he had told his story to the other jurors during the deliberations. The Manhattan resident, 35, also said he believed his admission helped convince skeptical jurors that the women accusing Maxwell could be believed.
