Previously unseen photographs show the inside of Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion.
Prosecutors have submitted dozens of photos into evidence, including shots of his bedroom and bathroom as well as his kitchen.
The photographs show several drawings depicting naked women hanging on the wall as well as a drawing that appears to be of Ghislaine Maxwell; in other shots a massage table can be seen as well as a number of desks in various rooms within the house.
The images were taken during a police raid on the property in 2005.
The images have been submitted into evidence in Maxwell’s ongoing sex-trafficking trial in New York.
During harrowing evidence given last week, a witness given the pseudonym 'Jane' told the court convicted sex offender Epstein had abused her in a ‘massage room’ within the mansion when she was between the ages of 14 and 16.
She said: “It looked like it was maybe supposed to be a giant walk-in closet. And it was very dark.
“I don’t think I saw anything past the massage table.”
She also alleged that Epstein had used sex toys on her during these ‘massages’.
At Maxwell’s trial on Friday, a green massage table taken during the 2005 raid was brought into the courtroom.
Former Palm Beach Police officer Gregory Parkinson, who was one of the officers who went to the mansion that day, examined the table and confirmed it was the same one taken from Epstein’s home, the New York Post reported.
He told the court: “It’s from the second floor south bathroom, where the shower was.”
Palm Beach officer Sergeant Michael Dawson, then took the stand and gave details on what they had been looking for the day they went into the house.
He said: “We were looking for massage tables. We were looking for massage oils. We were looking for sex toys.”
Maxwell is currently standing trial on charges of conspiracy and enticing minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, and the transportation of minors to engage in criminal sexual activity for allegedly grooming and recruiting underage girls from 1994 through 1997.
The 59-year-old has pleaded not guilty to all charges and faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted.
Prosecutor Lara Pomerantz accused Maxwell of ‘serving up’ young girls in her opening statement.
She told the court: "She preyed on vulnerable young girls, manipulated them, and served them up to be sexually abused.”
However, her defence lawyers claim Maxwell is being used as a scapegoat because Jeffrey Epstein is dead.
Lawyer Bobbi Sternheim said: "The charges against Ghislaine Maxwell are for things that Jeffrey Epstein did, but she is not Jeffrey Epstein.”
