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.
Maxwell was charged with recruiting and grooming girls to be sexually abused by disgraced sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. She is being held in a jail in New York City and her trial is scheduled for July.
