U.S. judge will probably decide financier Epstein's bail request on Thursday

Source: Reuters

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. judge said he will probably decide on Thursday whether Jeffrey Epstein, the American financier charged with sex trafficking underage girls, should remain in jail while awaiting trial or be allowed to live under house arrest at his Manhattan mansion.

At a hearing on Monday, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan said he will probably announce his decision on July 18 at 9;30 a.m. EDT (1330 GMT), saying he needs more time to absorb materials that have been submitted.

He noted that several people who said they are among Epstein's victims and opposed bail were in attendance, and that they may speak at the hearing.

Epstein, 66, was arrested on July 6 after flying into New Jersey's Teterboro Airport by private plane from Paris.

Assets in "diamonds and art" found in Epstein's UES mansion.

"We're just relying on the defendant's word for all of this," Rossmiller says, referring to Epstein's finances.

What is known about his finances should "alarm" the court, he adds.

🚨 "We became aware today" of a passport issued by a foreign country, in the 1980s, expired currently, with Epstein's picture but not his name, Rossmiller says.

The idea that he will abandon "his 14 years of self-discipline," he doesn't think the govt can carry that burden and that weight, the defense attorney says.

Berman invokes studies about recidivism that measure recidivism beyond 10, or 14, or 15 years.

@KlasfeldReports
Recidivism actually goes up after 15 years, and it's higher than after five years, according to this study Berman's citing.

Plus, Berman notes, victims don't always come forward and so a lot of these cases not reported.

Note: Judge Berman is a licensed clinical social worker.


Other tweets from inside the courthouse:

Berman says he won't rule today, but he will decide on Thursday, July 18.
(Context: That delay between bail hearing and ruling is typical.)

Berman adds that several victims are in court and can be heard "if they wish to be heard."



More specifically, Berman notes Epstein's his sex-offender registration reqs. in New York, Florida and Virgin Islands. What about New Mexico, he asks
Essentially, Berman's seeking more information about proceedings in the various states and jurisdictions related to Epstein's sex-offender status.

1. The correct answer is no bail - keep him locked up for the duration.

This isn't his first rodeo, he's a flight risk because he has private jets and his own pedo-island.

Of course, it all depends on how corrupt the judge is...

2. Epstein aka Alias?




WHO keeps a foreign passport in a different name? WHAT does it take to arrange such an identity? WHY would one need it?

This just keeps getting stranger and stranger

7. Don't feel bad, truly I thought the same thing first time I read it

Everything is abbreviated these days. Acronyms for everything. Sometimes I have to dig as far as Urban Dictionary.
