Jeffrey Epstein Arrested For Sex Trafficking of Minors: Sources
Jeffrey Epstein was reportedly arrested on Saturday and will appear in New York court on Monday to be charged with sex trafficking, according to multiple law enforcement sources

Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for allegedly sex trafficking dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, and will appear in court in New York on Monday, according to three law enforcement sources. The 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 two sources, will be unsealed Monday 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 one 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 New York, 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 two officials.

Epstein's attorney Martin Weinberg declined to comment when reached by The Daily Beast on Saturday night. The SDNY also declined to comment.

“It’s been a long time coming—it’s been too long 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, New York 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 that’s gone unchecked by authorities, his alleged victims say.

In an announcement planned for Monday the FBI is expected to provide a number for other victims to contact the SDNY.

That it was legal and consensual. If he deserves a defense in that hypo, that will be it.

Probably wouldn't be legal in the USVI since their AoC is 18.

The details of the encounter would certainly be important as to whether or not a defense was warranted.

Obviously having sex with an 18 year old as a 45 year old or w/e is just creepy af, but since it's not illegal I expect the right would have no problem back it if trump were doing it but condemning it if a democrat were doing it. Same goes for a 17 year old in a state where that is above the age of consent. That's not interesting.

What if it were a 17 year old in the state of Florida though?

If he raped someone, he wouldn’t deserve a popular defense (as opposed to a legal defense). Very few would defend that if they believed it to be true.

I sincerely doubt that. He does despicable shit all the time and his supporters defend him. I mean, he was creeping on teenage beauty pageant contestants and bragging about it, I could quite easily see his supporters asking if the child came on to him, asserting she was quite attractive, etc. etc.. I mean, they continue to defend him banging stormy daniels while his wife was home with their newborn.

Rape and a consensual affair between adults don’t seem that similar to me.

I mean, I agree that rape is much worse, and I wouldn't be remotely surprised to see his supporters defend him on such a charge, but challenging the evidence presented, including attacking the rape victim, but saying what about the clintons, or by minimizing the action itself.

Again and again his supporters have debased themselves to defend his behavior, going much much further than I'd have expected in terms of the type of behavior they were willing to defend. I have no reason to think they would draw a line here.

For example, he bragged on tape about sexually assaulting women then had like 20 women come forward to corroborate those claims. He simply asserted that they were all liars and his supporters have lapped it up without question - I'll pause to note that he's a known liar who lies all the time about everything.

You do have at least one reason to think we would draw a line because I told you we would. I’m at least right about me, but I think I’m right about the vast majority of Trump supporters.

The critical issue is whether or not the evidence leads to belief. For you and other Trump critics, belief comes easy. All it generally takes is an allegation. And it doesn’t even have to be a particularly plausible allegation. For Trump supporters, belief doesn’t come easy and it takes a more thorough base of evidence to bring us there.

I don't share your optimism regarding the vast majority of trump supporters.

I think you mean 22 separate allegations and also the suspect bragging about doing it on tape.

When did Trump ever admit to sexually assualting women on a tape? And most of those "22 seperate allegations" have been debunked. One woman came out and admitted as much.
