GHISLAINE Maxwell has been denied bail by a federal judge for the second time this year.
Maxwell, who is accused of grooming underage girls to be sexually abused by paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein, had her application denied again, it was revealed on Monday.
Maxwell, who is being held in a Brooklyn federal jail. has pleaded not guilty in the case.
Judge Alison Nathan ruled the British socialite posed a serious flight risk.
The judge considered Maxwell's wealth, possession of citizenship in multiple countries and the severity of the charges she faces.
They were the same reasons considered by Judge Nathan when MAxwell applied for bail back in July.
“The Court … finds that the Defendant’s proposed bail conditions would not reasonably assure her appearance at future proceedings,” Nathan said in her ruling in Manhattan federal court.
But Nathan, in an order released in Manhattan federal court, wrote that, “The Court … finds that the Defendant’s proposed bail conditions would not reasonably assure her appearance at future proceedings."
The socialite asked to be released on a bond of $22.5 million.
She apparently had further millions pledged by seven relatives and friends, according to a report by CNBC.
Maxwell is due to stand trial next year.
