NEW YORK — British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell won a delay in her sex-trafficking trial until the fall, as the judge agreed to move it from July 12.

Maxwell, 59, is being held in a federal lockup in Brooklyn on charges stemming from her time with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. She asked for the delay, over prosecutors’ objections, arguing that she and her legal team needed more time to prepare after the U.S. filed a revised indictment in late March.
