London: UK Socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was awarded 20-years in prison in the US  for helping former financier Jeffrey Epstein abuse young girls, media reports said.

Maxwell, 60, was convicted in December of recruiting and trafficking four teenage girls for sexual abuse by Epstein, her then boyfriend, BBC reported.

One of her accusers said outside the court in New York that she should stay in prison for the rest of her life.
