The FBI took her into custody on Thursday morning and she is due to appear in a federal court later, NBC News reports, citing two unnamed sources.

Her attorneys have relentlessly fought away allegations that she was involved in Epstein’s abuse of dozens of young girls for years by denying them in civil lawsuits.
She, however, has not been seen since August 2019 when she was spotted at an In-N-Out Burger, ten days after Epstein’ s suicide.
She has made no public comment about the scandal or about Epstein’s death last August and her whereabouts have been largely unknown.
DailyMail.com tracked her down in a small New England town where she was living with tech CEO Scott Borgerson in August 2019 but aside from that, her movements have been a mystery.
Dozens of women say Maxwell recruited them when they were underage or very young to act as sexual servants for Epstein.
She is also who allegedly introduce Prince Andrew to Virginia Giuffre Roberts, one of Epstein’s victims, when Virginia was 17.
Virginia claims she had sex with the royal that night in London after a night of partying that had been facilitated by Maxwell, the daughter of the late, disgraced London newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell.
Prince Andrew has always denied having any form of sexual contact with the young girl.

The photos, which were bizarrely staged, circulated but then she went underground
Since Epstein’s arrest and suicide, his victims have demanded that others involved in the abuse be brought to justice.
Maxwell has always been at the top of their list.
She allegedly approached girls in high schools, at country clubs and even in the street if she thought they would be to Epstein’s liking.
She would tell them that she worked for a wealthy man who would generously help them if they agreed to come to his home and massage him for money, the women say.
Giuffre has shared the most explosive allegations against her. She claims that Maxwell took part in her first sexual encounter with Epstein and that the three of them regularly had sex.
She also claims that when she tried to break free from Epstein, Maxwell threatened her.
Others have told how Maxwell facilitated their travel and taught them how to please the financier sexually.
