It’s day four of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial and today the court proceedings explored the relationship dynamic of what it was like to be a staffer under the employ of Jeffrey Epstein.
Former housekeeper Juan Alessi took the stand today to testify about Jeffrey Epstein’s Florida mansion and how Ghislaine Maxwell fit into the dynamic of it all.
He worked as a house manager from the early 1990s to 2002, and a courtroom jury heard his story in deciding Maxwell’s fate on six counts of “enticing and transporting minors for sex,” which she pleaded not guilty to.
Video livestreaming for federal trials is prohibited so the general public has had to rely on play-by-plays from reporters inside.
One of those inside the courtroom was Mairead Elordi of The Daily Wire.
Ghislaine Maxwell today is wearing a black sweater and black face mask. She rested her chin on her hands as she listened to testimony and chatted with her sister Isabel during a break.
At one point she leaned over to stare intensely at prosecutor Alison Moe for at least a minute

Alessi’s duty was to drive people like Giuffre and Jane to the Florida estate where Epstein and Maxwell resided. A commonality between the testimonies of Jane and Alessi was recalling Ghislaine Maxwell having a Yorkshire Terrier dog with her pretty much at all times.
Alessi was asked on the stand to review an employee handbook that outlined the conduct of staffers at Epstein’s home.
“Remember that you see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing, except to answer a question directed at you,” was a standout line heard by the jury at today’s proceedings.
Slate’s coverage points out that the Alessi testimony introduced Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “little black book” containing his network of wealthy contacts.
Epstein had three massages a day: one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening. Alessi remembers having to clean the massage room up and finding pornographic personal items strewn about.
Juan Alessi has detailed cleaning up Jeffrey Epstein’s massage room:
“I remember finding a large dildo. I looked like a huge man’s penis with two heads.”
Mr Alessi told court he put gloves on the wash it and put it in a wicker basket in Ms Maxwell’s closet.
