After a three-week trial, the jury found Ms Maxwell guilty of conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts and conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. Sentencing will follow.
Jill represented some of the UK victims of alleged abuse by Jeffrey Epstein, Maxwell's former partner, in civil claims that settled recently via the Victims Compensation Fund established in the US to help those affected.
Jill also said: 'The message to victims is loud and clear – wealth and contacts are no protection and predators cannot hide.
'I hope this leads to more victims of sexual assault finding their voice and courage. Only by listening and reacting to them will we prevent such heinous crimes.'
