Closing arguments are underway in the sex trafficking trial of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell. 

On Monday, a prosecutor called Maxwell a predator who manipulated vulnerable teenage girls for sexual abuse. The prosecution dismissed the defense arguments as a side show.

Maxwell is accused of grooming and presenting underage girls for sex with American financier Jeffrey Epstein. 

He died by suicide in jail while awaiting his trial on sex trafficking charges.
