Sarah Kellen Ghislaine Maxwell

Sarah Kellen, 40, who is accused of having a rolodex of women she would call up for massages at Epstein's mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, is set to testify against Ghislaine Maxwell. She's pictured with Maxwell in 2005.
Some of Jeffrey Epstein's alleged co-conspirators are set to testify against Ghislaine Maxwell in her trial later this year, court documents suggest.

Prosecutors said in a filing that the material for the trial includes 'any co-conspirator statements', a major sign that one of Epstein's inner circle has turned state's witness.

Prosecutors said that nine weeks before the trial, which is set to begin in November, they would turn over to the defense 'the identity of any unindicted co-conspirator' they plan to call to give evidence.

A separate filing from Maxwell seeking dismissal of the case says that one accuser was 'encouraged to recruit other females to provide massages to Epstein.'

The filings strongly indicate that some of the four women who were named as potential 'co-conspirators' under Epstein's sweetheart plea deal in 2008, under which he served just 15 months in jail for having sex with children, could face off against Maxwell in court.

The women in question have been accused of being Epstein's 'recruiters, groomers, sexual partners and friends' and have almost always pleaded the fifth amendment when questioned during depositions.

They are Sarah Kellen, 40, who is accused of having a rolodex of women she would call up for massages at Epstein's mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.

Lesley Groff, 53, is said to have been Epstein's executive assistant for 20 years and said in a 2005 interview that she had such a tight bond with him 'I know what he is thinking'.

Nadia Marcinko, 35, is alleged to have taken part in sexual encounters with underage girls and has been described as Epstein's on-off girlfriend.

Adriana Ross is a former model from Poland in her 30s who allegedly helped to organize Epstein's massages.

In a court filing late on Friday night, prosecutors and Maxwell's defense submitted competing timetables and logistics for the trial.

Prosecutors from the Southern District of New York said that materials during the trial 'will include testifying witness statements, which themselves will also include any co-conspirator statements about which witnesses may testify at trial'.

Prosecutors said that they 'only intend to introduce co-conspirator statements either through the testimony of witnesses or in the exhibits, which will be marked before trial'.

Under the proposed prosecution timeline, they will hand over to the defense 'the government's witness list, any co-conspirator statements it intends to introduce at trial, and the identity of any unindicted co-conspirator' on September 27, nine weeks before trial.

The material will include documentary statements about co-conspirators 'e.g., emails between Epstein and any number of thousands of persons', the government said.

The few emails that have been made public in relation to Epstein have emerged from a defamation case brought by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Maxwell.

The case was settled but a federal judge has ruled that the documents should be made public and they are being released in batches.

Among the emails was one from Epstein to Maxwell on January 24, 2015 after Giuffre accused her of recruiting and grooming her for Epstein to abuse.

Epstein tells Maxwell: 'You have done nothing wrong and i woudl (sic) urge you to start acting like it. go outside, head high, not as an esacping (sic) convict. go to parties. deal with it'.

Maxwell's correspondence with Prince Andrew was also made public and shows him asking about Giuffre.

If the alleged co-conspirators do give evidence it promises to be one of the most dramatic moments of Maxwell's trial.

Kellen has been accused of being Epstein and Maxwell's top lieutenant

She flew 350 times on Epstein's private jet, known as the 'Lolita Express', and has been seen in photographs on his private island in the Caribbean.

Epstein victim Sarah Ransome has said that 'it was Ghislaine and Sarah Kellen that showed me how to please Jeffrey'.

Kellen is now married to Nascar driver Brian Vickers and has rebranded herself as an interior designer under the name Sarah Kensington.

When approached by reporters outside her home in New York's Lower East Side last December, Kellen said: 'I'm no monster. I'm a victim of Jeffrey Epstein. I was raped and abused weekly'.

Marcinko's personal story is disturbing and Epstein once bragged she was his 'sex slave' who he had bought from her family in the former Yugoslavia when she was 15.

She reinvented herself as a pilot who ran a company called Aviloop selling discount flying lessons under the name 'Global Girl'.

Groff was Epstein's personal assistant in New York and Ransome has claimed that she spoke directly to her including once emailing that Epstein requested that she lose weight to maintain her slim figure.

Ross moved to Florida in 2002 and worked at Epstein's mansion in Palm Beach and flew frequently on his private jet, including with Bill Clinton.

Now aged in her 30s, she broke down in tears and declined to comment when approached for comment outside a Catholic church close to her home in Miami in 2019.

Another person who could give evidence against Maxwell is Haley Robson, who features heavily in the reports from the 2006 investigation into Epstein which say she recruited girls for him.

Robson appeared in the Netflix documentary 'Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich' in which she said she was manipulated.

She said: 'I was just a 16-year-old girl doing what this man had asked me to do.

'As a (teenager) you don't really stop to think about the bigger picture; you're not mature enough'. has approached lawyers and spokespeople for Kellen, Marcinko and Groff.

Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for Kellen who works for Washington-based crisis management company Kivvit, has previously cast her as a victim.

She said that Kellen joined Epstein's circle aged 22 after divorcing a man she married at 17 and was 'cast out of the Jehovah's Witness community in which she had been born and raised'.

She has said: 'Sarah continues to struggle with the trauma of her experiences and has chosen not to speak publicly at this time'.

Erica Dubno, a lawyer for Marcinko, has said she was 'severely traumatized' by her abuse and was still coming to terms with it.

Michael Bachner, a lawyer for Groff, has said that she made appointments for Epstein but 'at no time did she engage in any misconduct'.

Maxwell, 59, denies trafficking a minor and conspiracy sex trafficking among other offenses.
