The much-awaited trial of former British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell began Monday with prosecutors saying the 59-year-old was "involved in every aspect" of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's life. She is charged with procuring girls as young as 14 to perform "so-called massages" that evolved into sexual abuse, prosecutors said. By deluging the girls with gifts, money and personal praise, Maxwell and Epstein were able to portray the abuse as something “casual and normal," prosecutors said.
