JUDGE Alison Nathan asked the jury to deliberate until at least 6pm Tuesday, citing a recent spike in Covid-19 cases in New York City.
The judge expressed concern over the increased threat of the Omicron variant, and said she will update the court on how jury deliberations will move forward.
With a fourth day of deliberations underway, Ghislaine Maxwell may learn her fate soon.
Jurors submitted several requests to the judge, including the legal definition of “enticement,” transcripts of testimony, colored highlighters, post-it notes, and a white board.
Maxwell’s top charge, which is a sex-trafficking count, carries a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison.
If convicted on all counts, the socialite could face up to 80 years in prison. She denies all accusations.
