A former housekeeper for Jeffrey Epstein has denied recommendations from Maxwell’s defence workforce that he may have first met Jane when she was of the age of consent.
Juan Alessi mentioned on Thursday he met Jane in 1994, the identical yr Jane mentioned she met Epstein and Maxwell and was first abused.
He mentioned Jane gave the impression to be 14 or 15 when he first noticed her on the Florida property.
However upon cross-examination by Jeffrey Pagliuca through the fifth day of testimony on Friday, Alessi mentioned he couldn’t recall exactly which yr he met her in.
Pagliuca then requested whether or not Alessi met Jane in 1998 or 2000 – when she may have been of authorized age to consent.
“No, that is not true,” Alessi mentioned.
Pagliuca then referred to a 2016 deposition Alessi gave to a lawyer for Virginia Giuffre, who accuses Maxwell and Epstein of trafficking her for intercourse whereas she was a teen, by which Alessi mentioned he recalled selecting her up and driving her to Epstein’s home in 1998 or 1999.
Alessi replied that he may have been complicated Jane and Giuffre within the deposition.
