Jury in Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial told to work every day amid COVID spike

The judge in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial wants jurors to work more days and longer hours because of a spike in the number of coronavirus cases in New York.

Judge Alison Nathan said a positive COVID-19 case among jurors would endanger “our ability to complete this trial” and asked them to work every day to avert the risk of a mistrial.
