It’s about time. The infamous jet setting Palm Beach, New York City billionaire Jeffrey Epstein who basically had previously been given a slap on the wrist type sentence for years of sex trafficking in underage girls while his 100s of victims never got to see justice served, around the 2008 time period and afterwards, until now. He was arrested in NY on the 6th of July 2019.

Mr. Epstein had been notorious for throwing parties and jet setting with the rich and famous like Bill Clinton, Donald Trump  and Prince Andrew. His plane was called the Lolita Express.

“SDNY indictment against Jeffrey Epstein charges him with enticing children to engage in sex acts at his NYC mansion and also uses conspiracy count to charge similar conduct occurring in Florida. Strategic move to bypass the Acosta non-prosecution agreement.”

The lawyers who finagled a light sentence for Mr. Epstein included Alan Dershowitz and Kenneth Star for the defense and the current US labor secretary Alex Acosta who was the Miami US prosecutor at the time.

But here’s the glitch that the NYC US attorneys offices of the Southern District of NY (SDNY) are driving a truck through it, in 2019. The 2008 agreement made by US prosecutor’s office in Florida applies to Southern Florida, only. Mr. Epstein’s practice of also trafficking in underage girls in New York City, allows the SDNY office to criminally pursue Mr. Epstein.

According to the 7/8/2019 CNN and Washington Times reports, the Attorney General William Barr has recused himself from having oversight duties regarding the SDNY’s prosecution of Jeffrey Epstein because according to Mr. Barr, he had once worked for one of the law firms that represented Mr. Epstein.

UPDATE ON 7/9/2019: As per 7/9/2019 Washington Post report, “The Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility has been reviewing the handling of Epstein’s 2008 plea deal for possible misconduct, and Barr is recused from that. But the senior Justice Department official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, said Barr will not be recused from the prosecution in New York.”

“Due to his prior association with Kirkland & Ellis, the attorney general (William Barr) has and will remain recused from any retrospective review of the resolution of the earlier SDFL matter,” the official said. “After consulting with career ethics officials at the department, the attorney general will not recuse from the current SDNY matter.”

“SDFL is an acronym for the Southern District of Florida, where Epstein reached his previous plea. SDNY is an acronym for the Southern District of New York, where the U.S. attorney’s office brought the current charges.”

Originally, facing a 53-page federal indictment, Mr. Epstein should have ended up in federal prison for the rest of his life.”

But one morning, an unbelievably lenient plea agreement was struck that would conceal the full extent of Mr. Epstein’s crimes and the number of people involved.”

Not only would Mr. Epstein serve only about 13 months in the county jail where he could leave in the morning and return in the evening to the prison, driven in a limo,  but the deal — (non-prosecution agreement), — essentially shut down an ongoing FBI probe into whether there were more victims and other powerful people who took part in Mr. Epstein’s sex crimes, according to a Miami Herald review of thousands of emails, court documents and FBI records.”

At this home on El Brillo Way in Palm Beach, young girls, recruited by other young girls, would arrive by car or taxi, be greeted in the kitchen by a member of Jeffrey Epstein’s staff and ascend a staircase. They were met by Epstein, clad in a towel. Emily Michot emichot@miamiherald.comBut most importantly, the prosecutor and the defense attorneys managed to ignore the “Crime Victims’ Rights Act” where they were obliged to inform the victims of the status of any plea deal. The numerous sexually abused girls were never told anything regarding a plea deal until it was a fait accomplis.

Finally, in February 2019, a Miami judge ruled that the US attorneys’ office broke the law in coming to terms on the 2008 plea agreement without informing the victims involved in the case, but this opinion did not provide a remedy for all the victims.

As per a 4/12/2019 Law & Crime report, “In 2011, billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had a court hearing where it would be determined whether he would have to register as a sex offender following his conviction in Florida for soliciting an underage girl. Epstein had a residence on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and state officials in New York who assessed the case recommended that he be classified as the most dangerous level of sex offender. The prosecutor, however, recommended a lower classification, despite having the findings of the NY State Board of Examiners of Sex Offenders. This information came to light in a newly unsealed document obtained by the New York Post.”

As per a 6/ 25/2019 AP report, “A once-secret plea deal reached a decade ago with wealthy convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein must stand, despite objections from many of his victims who were teenagers at the time, federal prosecutors said in a new court filing.”

“Prosecutors said a violation of the Crime Victims’ Rights Act does not allow for the agreement to be voided. Some of the victims claim the deal, known as a non-prosecution agreement or NPA, should be thrown out at least partially because they were not consulted as required under that law.”

“The past cannot be undone; the government committed itself to the NPA, and the parties have not disputed that Epstein complied with its provisions,” prosecutors said.”

Here is the rest of the story…

On July 7, 2019, Pervaiz Shallwani, Kate Briquelet and Harry Siegel of the Daily Beast penned the following report, “Jeffrey Epstein Arrested for Sex Trafficking of Minors”

(“Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on Saturday and will appear in New York court on Monday to be charged with sex trafficking, according to multiple law enforcement sources.”)

Excerpts:

“Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for allegedly sex trafficking dozens of minors in NY and Florida between 2002 and 2005, and will appear in court in New York on Monday, according to three law enforcement sources. Saturday’s arrest by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force comes about 12 years after the 66-year-old financier essentially got a slap on the wrist for allegedly molesting dozens of underage girls in Florida.”

“For more than a decade, Epstein’s alleged abuse of minors has been the subject of lawsuits brought by victims, investigations by local and federal authorities, and exposés in the press. But despite the attention cast on his alleged sex crimes, the hedge-funder has managed to avoid any meaningful jail time, let alone federal charges.”

“The new indictment—which, according to 2 sources, will be unsealed Monday (7/8/2019) in Manhattan federal court—will reportedly allege that Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for “massages” and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his palatial residence in Palm Beach. Epstein will be charged with 1 count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors—which could put him away for a maximum of 45 years. The case is being handled by the Public Corruption Unit of the Southern District of NY, with assistance from the district’s human-trafficking officials and the FBI.”

“Several of the billionaire’s employees and associates allegedly recruited the girls for Epstein’s abuse, and some victims eventually became recruiters themselves, according to law enforcement. The girls were as young as 14, and Epstein knew they were underage, according to details of the arrest and indictment shared by 2 officials.”

“It’s been a long time coming,” said attorney David Boies, who represents Epstein accusers Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Sarah Ransome. “It is an important step towards getting justice for the many victims of Mr. Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise.”

“We hope that prosecutors will not stop with Mr. Epstein because there were many other people who participated with him and made the sex trafficking possible,” he told The Daily Beast.”

“In an era where #MeToo has toppled powerful men, Epstein’s name was largely absent from the national conversation, until the Miami Herald published a three-part series on how his wealth, power and influence shielded him from federal prosecution. For years, The Daily Beast has reported on Epstein’s alleged abuse, and his easy jail sentence and soft treatment by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, which ultimately scrapped a 53-page indictment against Epstein. An earlier version of Epstein’s plea deal included a 10-year federal sentence—before his star-studded lawyers threatened to go to trial in a case prosecutors feared was unwinnable, in part because Epstein’s team dredged up dirt on the victims, including social media posts indicating drug use.”

“Meanwhile, the financier flitted among his homes in Palm Beach, NY City, and the Virgin Islands, as well as his secluded Zorro Ranch in Stanley, New Mexico, transporting young women on his private jet to facilitate the sexual abuse.”

  1. Gronda, justice may finally be served on Mr. Epstein. This is a story the US president wants to not resurface. Secretary of Labor Acosta has egg on his face for not adhering to the plea bargain laws, but also for the extremely light sentencing while prosecutor.

    But, more troubling is the US president attending these lavish parties with underage girls present. This is context for the now adult woman who alleged Trump raped her when she was age 14. She was not viewed as credible, so the news did not make reputable news. Yet, there was an information sharing court date scheduled for December, 2016 that was allowed to move forward. When she threatened to make it more public just before the election, the conference was canceled at the last minute along with the court date.

    I am not saying Trump raped a fourteen year old girl, as I don’t know. What is true Epstein pleading guilty to underage sex trafficking and Trump (and Bill Clinton) attended parties hosted by Epstein.

    My guess is the president’s past is once again concerning to more than just him. As I have asked of Senators on several occasions, is this person you want to spend your dear reputation on? I have also noted they don’t know the whole story on past events and there is always future transgressions. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      I’m just feeling some relief that there’s an US attorney’s office that cares about the ‘rule of law’ being applied to the wealthy as well as us average folks.

      Knowing that President Trump has a proclivity towards taking advantage of women and for being totally inappropriate like walking in on teenage beauty contests where he could observe them in various stages of getting dressed or undressed, there’s no way that President Trump was an innocent bystander while attending Mr. Epstein’s orgy type parties in NY and in Miami area.

      Julie K. Brown who has kept this story alive for yrs. with the Miami Herald has said, “Epstein’s relationship with fellow Palm Beach resident Donald Trump was “friendly.” “They went to dinner parties at each other’s houses, Trump was also on his plane. Probably not as much as a lot of other people because, you know, Trump had his own plane. But they had a lot of social relationships. And the other interesting thing is Trump had a modeling agency, and Epstein also had a stake in a modeling agency, which they suspect he used to bring in underage girls from overseas.”

      I can’t say anything definitive about Mr. Trump’s behaviors at these parties, but I know he’s no innocent. Hopefully we’ll be hearing more about Mr. Epstein and his powerful friends. This includes Bill Clinton.

      Hugs, Gronda

  2. Hello Gronda. One name mentioned jumped out at me, Kenneth Star. This man who hounded Bill Clinton and made a name for himself for a written report that was a salacious sex story pretending to be an official indictment. Along with Bret Kavanaugh who demanded that Star make the most private details public and make Clinton squirm, both of them wanted the most embarrassing details known. Reports I have read claimed they wanted pictures of Clinton’s genitals and measurements. I don’t know if they got them. Star wrote a report on this that reads like a sex book. My point is this man could it seems over look the history of repeated pattern of abuse of teen girls. Does this mean he doesn’t care as much about sex if the person is not a famous Democrat? Girls violated against their will have less standing to him than an adult woman in a consensual sexual act? It does help explain why Alan Dershowitz has been willing to basically throw away his whole carrier making ridiculous arguments many lawyers say are so bad and silly it is incredible they are coming from a famous law professor. They simply are nonsense, but he has backed tRump fearlessly and with such vigor I thought it had to do with tRump moving the Embassy to Jerusalem. But it maybe a different shared interest? Hugs

    • Dear Scottie,

      Not only did Kenneth Star print every salacious detail about the former President Bill Clinton’s sexual adventures with his 22 year old intern, Monica Lewinsky, it was the current partisan GOP Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh who encouraged him to do so.

      Yet there’s one with a history of defending probably one of the most infamous American pedophiles and another one who was accused of a sexual assault by a credible witness.

      This is why President Clinton was more popular after he was impeached. Peoples got that President Clinton behaved badly, but what he was accused of did not warrant impeachment.

      But here we have President Trump who makes Bill Clinton look like a choir boy, but do you hear a word from either legal partisan, Mr. Starr and/ or Mr. Kavanaugh. Noooooo!

      You are so right. Alan Dershowitz has become a partisan mouthpiece for President Trump but it could be due to multiple reasons.

      Hugs, Gronda
