The top story
Ghislaine Maxwell has asked a US judge to release her under a proposed $ 28.5 million bail package as she awaits trial for sex crimes.
The British celebrity is accused of helping the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein grooming young girls.
A court record released Monday said Maxwell “is vehemently upholding her innocence” and asking to be released from prison pending trial.
Instead, she wants to be confined to her home and protected by armed guards.
Judge Alison Nathan could decide on this latest bail request in New York by the end of the year.
Maxwell was in a relationship with Jeffrey Epstein in the 1990s. The financier died in prison cell in August last year while awaiting trial for sexual trafficking more than a decade after being convicted of prostitution of a minor.
