WEST PALM BEACH ó When convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein killed himself in a New York City jail cell last month, a lawsuit his victims filed to expose federal prosecutorsí mishandling of his case died with him, a federal judge ruled Monday.

In a 15-page order, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra said Epsteinís death means he canít throw out a once-secret agreement that allowed the 66-year-old financier to escape federal prosecution for sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls at his Palm Beach mansion.

ďAs a result of Mr. Epsteinís death, there can be no criminal prosecution against him and the Court cannot consider granting this relief to the victims,Ē Marra wrote.

Further, while the controversial non-prosecution agreement also gave immunity to four women and unnamed others who helped the politically-connected millionaire recruit, groom or use teens for sex, Marra said he canít waive the protection they received.
