Photos of partially clothed pre-pubescent girls found at Epstein’s mansion



A former housekeeper for Jeffrey Epstein has denied suggestions from Maxwell’s defence team that he could have first met Jane when she was of the age of consent.  

 Juan Alessi said on Thursday he met Jane in 1994, the same year Jane said she met Epstein and Maxwell and was first abused.

He said Jane appeared to be 14 or 15 when he first saw her at the Florida property.

But upon cross-examination by Jeffrey Pagliuca during the fifth day of testimony on Friday, Alessi said he could not recall precisely which year he met her in.

Pagliuca then asked whether Alessi met Jane in 1998 or 2000 – when she could have been of legal age to consent.

“No, that’s not true,” Alessi said.

Pagliuca then referred to a 2016 deposition Alessi gave to a lawyer for Virginia Giuffre, who accuses Maxwell and Epstein of trafficking her for sex while she was a teenager, in which Alessi said he recalled picking her up and driving her to Epstein’s house in 1998 or 1999.

Alessi replied that he could have been confusing Jane and Giuffre in the deposition.
