Jeffrey Epstein, US financier charged with sex trafficking, found dead

Jeffrey Epstein, US financier charged with sex trafficking, found dead”

The documents stem from a defamation case against Ms Maxwell brought by Virginia Roberts Giuffre in 2015 - who claims she spent 3 years as Epstein and Maxwell's sex slave.

Epstein's body was found on Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, said Aja Davis, a spokeswoman for the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Last month, he was placed on a suicide watch after he was found in the fetal position in his jail cell with marks on his neck, according to NBC News. Officials were investigating that incident as a possible suicide or assault.

The hedge fund manager had been charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors.

He had pleaded not guilty to the allegations and would face up to 45 years in prison if convicted. Prosecutors said the case involved new evidence and new victims, including a "vast trove of lewd photographs" of young-looking girls.

He pleaded not guilty and was ordered held without bail. As labor secretary, Acosta's duties included overseeing human trafficking and global child labor laws.

The agreement provoked outrage after the Miami Herald published an investigative series on it in late 2018 that led to the resignation of President Donald Trump's labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, who as USA attorney in Miami at the time worked out the deal with Epstein's lawyers.

Epstein was arrested on July 6 for alleged sex trafficking of minor girls through his Upper East Side mansion in Palm Beach Florida.

Last month, Alex Acosta resigned as U.S. labor secretary amid a backlash over the deal that he negotiated with Epstein in that case while he was a federal prosecutor in Florida. He is also allowed to leave for work - up to 12 hours a day, six days a week.

2007: A plea deal is struck with Alex Acosta, the USA attorney in Florida. He does, however, have to register as a sex offender.

April 2017: Alex Acosta is appointed labor secretary by now-President Donald Trump.

"This was him - not me", Trump said of the resignation decision. For decades, Epstein was at the center of accusations that he had paid dozens of girls for sexual acts in Florida.

The archival footage shows the future president partying at Mar-a-Lago, where he is surrounded by National Football League cheerleaders from the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins teams.

After 28 female contestants were procured, he revealed that the other guests were just "him and Epstein", The New York Times reported.

Paramedics tried to revive Epstein as they wheeled him into the hospital but were unsuccessful. "No doubt about it - Jeffrey enjoys his social life".

But he later said the pair fell out "12 or 15 years ago" and reiterated last month that he was "not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein". Who wonders if anything can be done, all these years later, to help them heal? He had enablers. And friends. Who knows their names?
