IANAL but this sounds about right

and that the charges against her are out of time and consequently barred by the US statute of limitations.

Seems about right, except, well:

Which Cases Do Not Have a Statute of Limitations?
There is no federal statute of limitations for certain crimes. A person can be charged at any time for the following:

Federal crimes punishable by death (U.S. Code 18 Section 3281)
Terrorism crimes that resulted in death or serious bodily injury (U.S. Code 18 Section 3286)
Sex crimes with a minor (U.S. Code 18 Section 3283)

Now, whether Mann Act or similar is actually a sex crime is an unknown to me.

  1. Plea deals, statute of limitations, actual jurisdictions of alleged crimes . . . I don’t think they really have anything on her.

    ‘More than 20 armed officers said to have taken part in raid leading to her detention at rural New Hampshire retreat’

    This is government terrorism. Abuse of power. Why do this? To intimidate her into selling out others. Common government tactic. See: Roger Stone arrest.

    I don’t know her; I know nothing of her case. But this shit makes me want her to get off Scot free, whatever she might have done. Government did this wrong.

    BWTM: There are no new revelations here. This is government FINALLY acting on what has been known for decades. It’s purely a change in politics. It is identical to what would happen if Hillary were arrested for all she has done. Everyone knows she is a Bond-level villain. It is politics that keeps her out off the lethal injection gurney.

  2. My limited reading about the case suggests that she has been charged only for a portion of the time she was with Epstein, and not for the years prior to his arrest. Did she stop being a pimp and become just a close friend?

  3. Bloke in North Dorset

    The author of A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein is on the latest Spectator Americano podcast.

    She was no a Bond villain, but she’s also no innocent.

  4. No Bond villian? She killed 40 people. She stole $2,000,000,000 from the Haiti Relief Fund.

  5. “Sex crimes with a minor” – Yes, no limitation

    – Where is Ms Maxwell now?

    – In the prison Epstein ‘accidentally’ committed suicide – Bill & Hellary sent their condolences

    btw still can’t see how Andrew allegedly shagging a 17 year old in London is “child sex”

  6. ““Sex crimes with a minor” – Yes, no limitation”

    There is no allegation that she had sex with a minor.

  7. There is no allegation that she had sex with a minor.

    I guess it depends how you define “Sex with a minor”. Presumably the immunity she got from Epstein’s earlier deal covers what happened before Florida, the only question then is what happened afterwards?

    If the answer is “nothing” or “not much” then I suspect the Feds hands will be tied unless she’s breached her immunity deals “Full Disclosure” clause.

    Then again, maybe the Feds have screwed the pooch, which is why it’s taken so long to arrest her? Maybe she’s guilty, but largely protected by the immunity deal and what they’re doing is trying to charge her for other stuff outside the scope. What that would be? Who knows?

  8. If a person flees the jurisdiction and cannot be found, the statute of limitations is generally tolled – i.e., suspended. There’s no reward for fleeing.

    Sure, but these are Federal charges and she doesn’t appear to have left the US, so unless the term applies differently…
