In a court filing on Friday, Maxwell’s attorneys said the retrial motion was filed confidentially, but referred to Grand Jury 50, Scotty David, Online email report.

Attorney Bobbi C. Sternheim wrote in a letter to Judge Alison Nathan: “For the reasons outlined in the Motion, we request that all submissions relating to Grand Jury No. 50 remain sealed for until the Court issues a Motion.”

It comes after Scotty David, who sat in the three-week trial in New York, said he was “delighted” that justice was served with British society facing 65 years behind bars.

Last month, Maxwell, 60, was found guilty of sex trafficking and grooming girls for abuse by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, with the pair described as “accomplices”.

A jury of six women and six men found her on five of the six counts because she was not found guilty of soliciting a minor to engage in an illegal sexual act after more than 40 consideration now.

But Maxwell is now hoping to get a retrial after juror David revealed he had told the jury about abusing himself as a child during deliberation, potentially influencing the verdict.
