A federal judge agreed to keep some details in Ghislaine Maxwell’s criminal case a secret. On Thursday, the U.S. district judge issued the ruling on the request for redactions.

He sided with Maxwell and decided some of the information would be too “sensational and impure” to reveal to the public. According to reports, redactions requested by prosecutors were also granted after they argued it would help protect the integrity of the investigation.
