Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime girlfriend of deceased accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, attorneys have asked for documents to remain sealed.

In a filing on Monday, the attorney alleges they’ve learned of “critical new information” impacting her criminal case.

Her attorneys have asked that the documents, including depositions, remain sealed for three weeks as they work with prosecutors to see if they can share information with the court.

The filling did not disclose new information.

In a case that has seen many twists including Jeffrey Epstein’s suspicious death by suicide in jail, this is the latest twist.

Maxwell’s attorneys began conversations with the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York over the weekend to argue to stop the release of documents.

Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested in New Hampshire in July and has pleaded not guilty.
