(NEWSER) – Federal prosecutors wanted 30 to 55 years, but Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to far fewer on Tuesday. The jet-setting socialite who once consorted with royals, presidents, and billionaires was sentenced to 20 years for helping the financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse underage girls. Defense attorneys wanted a five-year term. That prosecutors wouldn’t get their way was established prior to the sentence behind handed down: US District Judge Alison J. Nathan ruled that the federal sentencing guideline she would rely upon in sentencing the 60-year-old Maxwell was a range between 15 1/2 and 19 1/2 years in prison, reports the AP.
