According to Reuters, a photo of a green massage table and sex toys seized by authorities from Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, was presented to the judges during the trial of Gusselin Maxwell on Friday. Shown
Maxwell is on trial in Manhattan on multiple charges of sexually abusing underage girls.
According to Reuters, Jeffrey Parkinson, a retired police officer, testified that he discovered a massage table during a 2005 search of the mansion for an Epstein-related inquiry. The prosecution also showed the jury a photo of a box labeled “Twin Torpedo” – full of sex toys that Michael Dawson, a Parkinson’s colleague, said he found in the upstairs closet.
Prosecutors have charged Maxwell with sexually abusing Epstein’s girls, sexually abusing them, and lying in a statement about his actions. On Wednesday, one of the accusers testified under the pseudonym “Jane” that Maxwell and Epstein had been sexually assaulted several times in at least the five years since 1994.
Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to all eight charges against him, six of which are currently on trial. If convicted, he could face up to 80 years in prison.
