    A fear many close to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein had may soon be realized, as convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell has decided to stop fighting to protect the names of eight men accused of having sex with underage girls procured by the two felons.

    The New York Post reported one of Maxwell's attorneys wrote in a letter to federal Judge Loretta Preska last week that the alleged madam of Epstein would no longer fight to keep secret the names of eight "John Does" who were named in a 2015 civil lawsuit against Maxwell from Virginia Giuffre, who is accusing Prince Andrew of sexual abuse.

    "After careful review of the detailed objections submitted by Non-Party Does 17, 53, 54, 55, 73, 93, and 151, counsel for Ghislaine Maxwell writes to inform the Court that she does not wish to further address those objections," Maxwell attorney Laura Menninger wrote in a January 12 letter.

    The Post noted that the letter was "written the same day a Manhattan federal judge refused to dismiss Giuffre's case against Prince Andrew."

    The letter also comes less than two weeks after Maxwell was found guilty on five out of six of the charges against her. As The Daily Wire reported:

    The jury found Maxwell guilty on five of six counts on Wednesday, including conspiracy to entice individuals under 17 to travel in interstate commerce with intent to engage in "illegal sexual activity," conspiracy to transport individuals under 17 to travel in interstate commerce with intent to engage in "illegal sexual activity," transportation of an individual under 17 with intent to engage in "illegal sexual activity," conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of individuals under 18, and sex trafficking of an individual under 18.

    Hot Air's Jazz Shaw speculated, as others have, that Maxwell may have stopped protecting the names in the hopes that she would receive a lighter sentence for her crimes if she gives up other potential criminals.

    "This assumes that any of the charges against the suspected Johns could still be brought to court and haven't run afoul of the statute of limitations. Even if that's not the case, the men on the list could still wind up in civil court where Maxwell's testimony could be central to such cases," Shaw wrote. "Maxwell is unlikely to get as light of a sentence out of this as she would have if she had just offered to cooperate initially, but it could still be an improvement for her."

    Hot Air's Ed Morrissey previously questioned whether Maxwell would give up the names to save herself:

    Perhaps that's what prosecutors had in mind with Maxwell all along. It will be another several weeks before sentencing takes place, so Maxwell has time enough to stew over the benefits of cooperation. Rumors have swirled that Epstein kept a vast video library of these sexual encounters as leverage over the "johns" or even outright extortion. If anyone knows where that evidence might be, it's Maxwell, assuming it still exists at all or existed in the first place. Even without the video library, Maxwell certainly knows who got connected to Epstein's Lolita Express and could assist prosecutors into building cases against the "johns."
