This is a huge story. This is an enormous story. For decades this sleazeball used his billions, his lawyers, and his connections to avoid justice. His lawyers negotiated a laughable sentence for his crimes in 2007 with a US Attorney who is now Trump's Secretary of Labor. He avoided harsh federal penalties in exchange for pleading guilty to lesser state charges. His sentence included work release. So he spent much of his sentence not even in county jail, but working at his Palm Beach office. His victims were not informed of this deal and right now a federal judge is considering whether the deal is illegal. There is reason to believe that investments in his funds and the fees he earned could be viewed as blackmail of rich friends/clients of his underage girl trafficking ring. Names associated with him include Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Donald Trump, Alan Dershowitz, and many others. This time the charges come from the SDNY. They aren't likely to back down in the face of political pressure. Many idols may fall in this prosecution. Jeffrey Epstein Arrested for Sex Trafficking of Minors
