New Jeffrey Epstein accuser: He raped me when I was 15

Source: NBC News

Jennifer Araoz says she was 14 years old when a young woman approached her outside her New York City high school in the fall of 2001.

The woman was friendly and curious, asking Araoz personal questions about her family, her upbringing, their finances. Soon she began talking to Araoz about a man she knew who was kind and wealthy and lived nearby.

His name, the woman said, was Jeffrey Epstein.

... snip ...

There was a bank of cameras near the front entrance, with mini TV screens showing who was coming and going, she said. A secretary's office was off to the left. Up the hall to the right, there was a cavernous room filled with exotic animal trophies. Araoz recalled seeing a stuffed lion, tiger, even a giraffe as well as the skins of other animals draped across the floor.

2. rest assured, he will

New York ain't messing around. Even if Trump and Barr gum up the Fed works, there's always NY state prosecution. NY has laws against sex crimes against minor children, and sex trafficking, and child pornography. I seriously doubt that anyone will come to save rhe day for Epstein. He is far too toxic now.

6. Epstein has nothing left now...

If the FEDs raids got all the "evidence" - he has no power to blackmail.

Of course - rest assured (sarcasm) all the other "powerful" people will conveniently have any incriminating evidence "disappeared" from the raids. Hopefully I'm wrong on this ....

But there will still be plenty left to put him away for good. Epstein is going to be left to twist in the wind.

21. The Feds drag out court cases for decades. This arrest silences Epstein & locks away evidence.

It's weird how Barr unrecused himself.

3. This story needs to stay alive

on the front page.

Think about this; this guy was way worse than Jerry Sandusky. The people who enabled Sandusky got away with it and no I'm not talking about Paterno, I'm talking about the top brass at Penn State, I'm talking about the governor Tom Corbett who assigned 1 young state trooper to investigate Sandusky and gave him a small desk with no resources.

We can't allow this to happen again. Epstein needs to rot in jail just like Sandusky, but so do the enablers of Epstein.

Whether or not Acosta resigns Democrats need to subpoena him to testify. Putting Epstein in jail is not enough.

I'm waiting for Kirsten Gillebrand to lead the charge, I mean she is campaigning today on getting Franken removed from the Senate, how about she work to get Acosta removed from his job and maybe more?

11. They all need to come forward and speak out

Not just to protect others from having this happen to them, but to hold these people involved. all of them , accountable for what they've done. And any politicians protecting these criminals need to go to, especially Acosta and trump. I also suspect trump could be involved in it all with Epstein in the past, and ran one from one of his apartments. Remember he told M Wolf his greatest joy was setting up a friend to get his wife into bed with him. That was trump sending his friend to somewhere in his building to be sexually serviced so he could use it against him to seduce his wife with.

Time to start getting his assistants rounded up, IMO.

They can rot, too.

24. See the movie Apartment 407

https://www.oxygen.com/martinis-murder/frida-farrell-discusses-film-apartment-407-based-on-true-sex-slavery-experience

To see how they lie and manipulate unsuspecting young women with modeling shoots or other ruses to lure them in. It's pretty nasty stuff. They hire women to go recruit other women and build up their trust.

25. Not everyone has the same level of privilege.

For example, some circumstances that could easily lead a 15 year old into these circumstances include:

1. history of sexual abuse
2. neglectful or abusive parenting resulting in low self esteem
3. neurological conditions like autism or learning disabilities that limit their ability to understand other peoples' motivations or to perceive danger
4. growing up in a culture that conflates being rich and sexy with being successful and happy
5. coming from a broken home and craving positive adult attention (the women in the story lost her father when she was 12)
6. being a 15 year old and not having a brain that has developed to the point of being able to understand the likely consequences and risks of their actions.

There are women two or three times this girl's age who would have gone to a rich stranger's house under the same circumstances and they wouldn't have deserved to be raped either.

Donald Barr hired Epstein a two-time college drop out as a calculus and physics teacher. Donald Barr was the headmaster at the Dalton school in NYC.
