From ‘James Bond’ to private jets, Maxwell trial heads into day two
Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime private pilot takes the witness stand Tuesday in the New York trial of accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite charged with recruiting girls and young women and trafficking them to have sex with the late financier Jeffrey Epstein. Lawrence “Larry” Visoski worked for the deceased financier for nearly 20 years, from 1991 until Epstein’s arrest in 2019. Visoski piloted Epstein’s various jets, which Epstein used to transport young women. Several victims have said that at least one of his planes was fitted with cushioned floors so that it could be used for sex. At least one girl said they were directed to dress as candy stripers and in other provocative dress for the benefit of Epstein, Maxwell and other powerful people who flew on his plane over the years. Visoski, however, has previously testified in civil suits that he was not privy to what went on outside the cockpit, and that he was unaware of any minors who were on the plane.
