Financier Jeffrey Epstein Reaches Settlement in Suit Connected to Alleged Sexual Abuse of Dozens of

http://time.com/5470277/jeffrey-epstein-settlement-sexual-abuse-teen-girls/

(WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.) ó A last-minute settlement has been reached in Florida in a long-running lawsuit involving a politically-connected financier accused of sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls.

The deal came Tuesday just before jury selection was to begin. It means none of the women will be able to testify against Jeffrey Epstein for now.
A lawyer for Epstein read an apology from him to attorney Bradley Edwards, who represents some of Epsteinís accusers. Edwards claimed Epstein tried to damage his reputation by suing him.

The 65-year-old Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to state sex charges, served a year in jail and became a registered sex offender. But in a secret deal with federal prosecutors led by now-Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, Epstein avoided a possible life term, and victims werenít heard from in court.

1. This whole case truly stinks. Like Lenny Bruce once said, "You get all the 'justice' you can ...

afford." And "The only justice in the 'Halls of Justice' is in the halls.

3. This whole thing stinks to high heaven. You have to wonder if Acosta got his job because

the second provision of the original agreement would have protected Trump.
