Prosecutors announce sex trafficking charges against multi-millionaire


(CNN)At least one young woman has accused Jeffrey Epstein of "improper sexual contact" while he was serving a 13-month jail sentence for state charges in 2008 and 2009, according to a lawyer who represents dozens of Epstein accusers.

Bradley Edwards, the lawyer, also alleged during a press conference Tuesday in New York that Epstein had inappropriate contact with some women as recently as 2011.

Edwards was responding to claims made Monday by Epstein's lawyers that Epstein had maintained a "spotless 14-year record," with "meticulous obedience" to the law, since he pleaded guilty to state prostitution-related charges in 2008 and was released from jail.

Last week, federal prosecutors in New York charged Epstein with sex trafficking of minors and sex trafficking conspiracy. He has pleaded not guilty.

His attorneys touted his good behavior in recent years when asking a federal judge to release Epstein to a set of bail conditions that include confinement to his New York mansion and a wearable satellite tracking device. A hearing is set for Thursday.

4. Jeffrey Epstein paid Palm Beach Sheriff's Office $128,000

during incarceration for prostitution from his nonprofit Florida Science FoundatThat foundation appears to be the same Epstein foundation which paid PBSO nearly $130,000 between October 2008 and May 2009. It’s unclear if Epstein wrote off the payments, as financial records for the so-called non-profit were not immediately available.

However, the Florida Science Foundation played another role in the Epstein saga. Once Epstein received probation, a Palm Beach County judge allowed him to serve out his community service requirements “at his own non-profit, the Florida Science Foundation,” according to former WPTV reports.ion.

5. Saw the "Florida Science Foundation" in your post and went to look for info. on it.

Before looking more than a minute, found it mentioned in this article from last December which has material in it I never saw until just now, which gave me a start:



Cerabino: Epstein case first went wrong right here

By Frank Cerabino

. . .

The case started in 2005 with a 14-year-old girl from Royal Palm Beach High School telling the town police that she was lured with cash by another girl to go to Epstein’s Brillo Way home on Palm Beach, where he got the girls to strip and give him lewd massages.

Town police sifted through Epstein’s garbage, finding evidence of multiple girls being recruited to pleasure him. After gathering enough evidence, police got a search warrant to Epstein’s home. And in the search they found more evidence, including naked photos of underage girls.

After 11 months of investigating, the town police presented enough evidence to justify a multiple-count indictment against Epstein on the charges of unlawful sex with minors.

This should have been a news-conference occasion to announce a significant indictment of a prolific sex criminal in our midst.

But Krischer chose not to direct-file charges in the case.

Instead, his office presented the case to a grand jury, which meets behind closed doors, and hears only the evidence the prosecutor decides to reveal.

Krischer’s office presented evidence from just one of the girls, and the grand jurors, obviously unaware of the scope of the case, decided to charge Epstein with a single misdemeanor count of “solicitation of prostitution.”

That charge alone ought to turn your stomach.

Imagine treating a girl who is too young to give consent as a “prostitute” -- rather than an underage victim of a sexual assault by an adult predator in his 50s.

That’s just another violation, a slimy way to confer a share of guilt on the victim, as if a cash transaction between an adult and a child somehow makes the sexual assault a misdemeanor rather than a felony.


. . .


A couple months before serving his sentence, Epstein formed a company called the Florida Science Foundation, which set up an office on Australian Avenue in West Palm Beach.

Under a special arrangement, he was allowed to check out of the county stockade for up to 16 hours, when he allegedly would go to work six days a week at his newly formed foundation, and be in the company of others there.

Then after serving 13 months of his 18-month sentence in this fashion, he was released, and supposedly on probation at his Palm Beach home, where his movements would be restricted. But that was another mockery of justice.

He got travel permits to make weekly trips on his private jet to New York and his private island in the Virgin Islands. Even though other parolees are supposed to get limited time one day a week to buy groceries, Epstein would log out of his Palm Beach home for long stretches of time, claiming in one instance to shop at Home Depot from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and at another time to spend 5 ˝ hours at a local Sports Authority store.

When Palm Beach Police found him walking around Palm Beach one day, apparently in violation of his probation, no action was taken.


Epstein’s victims have filed multiple civil suits against him, and some of them still hold out hope for justice one day, which includes vacating his plea deal and sending him to Florida prison. A real one this time.

6. How is having meticulously labeled child porn spotless?

From what I have heard he had enough child porn to put him away for several lifetimes.

And the fake passport, cash and dozens of loose diamonds?

Those are not the possessions of someone intending to remain under house arrest, but someone intending to flee.
