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.

Gov. Ron DeSantis ordered a probe into the deal that spared Epstein serious jail time and would eventually cost Alex Acosta his job as labor secretary.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ordered a state criminal investigation on Tuesday into the plea agreement that allowed Jeffrey Epstein to skirt federal prosecution for soliciting prostitution from underage girls in 2007.

The arrangement, under which Epstein was allowed to serve most of his 13-month state sentence on work release without fear of federal charges, has already cost Alex Acosta his job as U.S. labor secretary. As the U.S. attorney in Miami at the time, Acosta signed off on the non-prosecution deal, which went into effect in 2008.

Acosta's office reached the deal to halt the federal sex abuse investigation involving dozens of teenage girls in return for Epstein pleading guilty to lower state charges involving a single victim.

The deal has been widely denounced both for its leniency and for its secrecy, as Epstein's accusers were not informed of the agreement until after it had been struck.

Epstein, 66, a multimillionaire financier with high-profile friends, was arrested in early July on federal charges of sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy. Federal prosecutors were able to bring the new charges because they address crimes not covered by the 2007 agreement, alleged to have been committed outside the Miami area.

Epstein has pleaded not guilty to the criminal charges and remains held without bail. He is separately being sued by a woman who told NBC News last month that Epstein raped her when she 15 years old.

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw ordered an investigation last month into the county's actions at the time, but on Tuesday, he asked DeSantis to transfer oversight of the probe to the Florida Division of Law Enforcement "given the recent questions that have been raised."

The request from Bradshaw, who was sheriff at the time of the secret agreement, came after more than 4,000 people signed a state lawmaker's petition demanding a state investigation.

DeSantis agreed with the request, saying state investigators should expand the inquiry "beyond the reported concerns with Jeffrey Epstein's work release." He also transferred jurisdiction for the investigation from Palm Beach County to the state attorney for Fort Pierce.

  • Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy financier accused of child sex trafficking, misappropriated more than $46 million from L Brands founder Les Wexner and his family, Wexner has told members of his foundation.
  • Wexner said he learned that the money was taken only after he decided in 2007 to sever his relationship with Epstein after Epstein was under investigation for sexual misconduct with young girls.

Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy financier accused of child sex trafficking, misappropriated more than $46 million from L Brands founder and chairman Les Wexner and his family, Wexner has told members of his foundation in a letter Wednesday.

Wexner said he learned that the money was taken only after he decided in 2007 to sever his relationship with Epstein after Epstein was under investigation for sexual misconduct with young girls in Florida.

“We discovered that he had misappropriated vast sums of money from me and my family,” Mr. Wexner wrote in a letter Wednesday to the Wexner Foundation.

“This was, frankly, a tremendous shock, even though it clearly pales in comparison to the unthinkable allegations against him now,” wrote Wexner, whose L Brands owns Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works.

Epstein for years was known for managing Wexner’s personal finances before the first criminal probe into his penchant for getting massages from girls became publicly known.

Wexner’s letter said that a $46 million contribution that Epstein made to the Wexner’s YLK Charitable Fund in 2008 “represented a portion of the returned monies.”

“All of that money - every dollar of it - was originally Wexner family money,” Wexner wrote.

CNBC had originally reported the existence of and details about that donation last month.

Epstein, a 66-year-old former friend of Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton is being held without bail in a Manhattan jail while he faces federal sex trafficking charges lodged in early July.

He has pleaded not guilty in that case, where he is accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls at his New York City townhouse and Palm Beach, Florida, mansion from 2002 through 2005, under the guise of receiving massages from them.

After Epstein’s arrest, L Brands hired outside counsel to review the company’s relationship with him. The company has said it doesn’t believe Epstein “was ever employed by nor served as an authorized representative of the company.”

Epstein is a registered sex offender. He pleaded guilty to prostitution-related charges involving an underage girl in 2008. That cases was lodged by a state prosecutor in Florida.

Epstein served a jail sentence of 13 months in that case, but spent much of his time out on work release.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis directed his state’s law enforcement department Tuesday to handle a criminal probe into Epstein’s jail work release and also asked the agency to launch an inquiry into “other irregularities” surrounding the earlier probe and plea agreement.

Dear Wexner Foundation Community,

For 35 years, the work we have achieved together in this community has continued to be one of the great honors of my life, and that is why I am writing to you now. In recent weeks, there has been considerable media attention on my past connection to Jeffrey Epstein.

To be clear, I never would have imagined that a person I employed more than a decade ago could have caused so much pain. I condemn his abhorrent behavior in the strongest possible terms and am sickened by the revelations I have read over the past weeks.

I sincerely value your trust, and that is why it is important you hear details and context from me directly.

I first met Mr. Epstein in the mid-1980s, through friends who vouched for and recommended him as a knowledgeable financial professional.

Mr. Epstein represented that he had various well-known and respected individuals both as his financial clients and in his inner circle. Based on positive reports from several friends, and on my initial dealings with him, I believed I could trust him. Eventually, he took over managing my personal finances.

He was given power of attorney as is common in that context, and he had wide latitude to act on my behalf with respect to my personal finances while I focused on building my company and undertaking philanthropic efforts.

In the early 1990s Mr. Epstein became a trustee of The Wexner Foundation, but he had no executive responsibilities in the running of the Foundation. He did not work directly with Foundation staff, and he did not engage with leadership initiatives in any way.

As the allegations against Mr. Epstein in Florida were emerging, he vehemently denied them.

But by early fall 2007, it was agreed that he should step back from the management of our personal finances. In that process, we discovered that he had misappropriated vast sums of money from me and my family.

This was, frankly, a tremendous shock, even though it clearly pales in comparison to the unthinkable allegations against him now.With his credibility and our trust in him destroyed, we immediately severed ties with him. We were able to recover some of the funds.

The widely reported payments Mr. Epstein made to the charitable fund represented a portion of the returned monies. All of that money - every dollar of it - was originally Wexner family money.

I am embarrassed that, like so many others, I was deceived by Mr. Epstein. I know now that my trust in him was grossly misplaced and I deeply regret having ever crossed his path.

As the story has unfolded further, and the extent of the pain caused by Mr. Epstein continues to grow, I have spent time reflecting and searching for answers as to how this could have happened. My heart goes out to each person who has suffered unthinkable pain and I pray for their healing.I want to convey my gratitude to the many who have written to express your trust.

Abigail and I deeply appreciate your well wishes.As I reflect on the situation, I know that we will together seek the wisdom that can be gleaned even from such troubling events.

And, my friends, I want you to know that I remain fully committed to supporting your amazing and enduring leadership across the globe. Keep leading.

Les

There's nothing to defend, dolt. Trump was used as an example of your hypocrisy. No "Lib" here actually thought he molested anyone. It was an example of how your stupid guilty by association arguments are hypocritical and demonstrated your clear bias in this matter.

I'm not surprised that went way over your head, even though it was directly stated over and over again.

Everything about these theories is nothing more than creating guilt by association. Trump is every bit as associated. When someone applies their exact same logic, the Pedocrowd throws their own logic out the window.

That's a huge part of the reason no one takes ya'll seriously.

If Clinton is guilty by association then so is Trump. That argument is made moreso to demonstrate how fucking stupid some of you sound than it is to actually implicate Trump.

I, personally don't think Trump is guilty.
But if i were to apply TaQo's logic then he's absolutely fucking guilty. Because TaQo and the like's logic is fucking garbage.


Here you go, you butt-fucking moron.

And i've been saying that same shit for the past two years.

But you're kinda dim, so....no worries.
