Indictment below:

SDNY RELEASE – Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, William F. Sweeney Jr., the Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), and James P. O’Neill, Commissioner of the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”), announced that JEFFREY EPSTEIN was arrested Saturday and charged with sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors.

The indictment unsealed today alleges that, between 2002 through 2005, EPSTEIN sexually exploited and abused dozens of underage girls by enticing them to engage in sex acts with him in exchange for money. Epstein allegedly worked with several employees and associates to ensure that he had a steady supply of minor victims to abuse, and paid several of those victims themselves to recruit other underage girls to engage in similar sex acts for money. He committed these offenses in locations including New York, New York, and Palm Beach, Florida. EPSTEIN is expected to be presented in Manhattan federal court this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pitman. The case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman.

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “As alleged, Jeffrey Epstein abused underage girls for years, operating a scheme in which girls he victimized would recruit others for Epstein to exploit and abuse. Epstein exploited girls who were vulnerable to abuse, enticed them with cash payments, and escalated his conduct to include sex acts, often occurring at his residence on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. While the charged conduct is from a number of years ago, the victims – then children and now young women – are no less entitled to their day in court. My Office is proud to stand up for these victims by bringing this indictment.”

From at least 2002 through at least 2005, JEFFREY EPSTEIN enticed and recruited, and caused to be enticed and recruited, dozens of minor girls to visit his mansion in New York, New York (the “New York Residence”), and his estate in Palm Beach, Florida (the “Palm Beach Residence”), to engage in sex acts with him, after which he would give the victims hundreds of dollars in cash. In order to maintain and increase his supply of victims, EPSTEIN also paid certain victims to recruit additional underage girls whom he could similarly abuse. In this way, EPSTEIN created a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit, often on a daily basis, in locations including New York and Palm Beach.

EPSTEIN’s victims were as young as 14 at the time he abused them, and were, for various reasons, often particularly vulnerable to exploitation. Moreover, EPSTEIN knew that many of his victims were under 18, including because, in some instances, victims expressly told him they were underage.

In creating and maintaining this network of minor victims in multiple states to abuse and exploit sexually, EPSTEIN worked with others, including employees and associates who facilitated his conduct by, among other things, contacting victims and scheduling their sexual encounters with EPSTEIN at the New York Residence and at the Palm Beach Residence.

In both New York and Florida, EPSTEIN perpetuated this abuse in similar ways. Victims were initially recruited to provide “massages” to EPSTEIN, which became increasingly sexual in nature and would typically include one or more sex acts. EPSTEIN paid his victims hundreds of dollars in cash for each encounter.

In particular, during encounters at the New York Residence, victims would be taken to a room where they would perform a massage on EPSTEIN, during which EPSTEIN would frequently escalate the nature and scope of physical contact with his victims to include, among other things, sex acts such as groping and direct and indirect contact with the victims’ genitals. In connection with the encounters, EPSTEIN, or one of his employees or associates, typically paid each victim hundreds of dollars in cash. Once minor victims were recruited, EPSTEIN or his employees or associates would contact victims to schedule appointments for “massages.” As a result, many victims were abused by EPSTEIN on multiple subsequent occasions.

To further enable him to abuse underage girls, EPSTEIN asked and enticed certain of his victims to recruit additional minor girls to perform “massages” and similarly engage in sex acts with EPSTEIN. When a victim would recruit another underage girl for EPSTEIN, he paid both the victim-recruiter and the new victim hundreds of dollars in cash. Through these victim-recruiters, EPSTEIN maintained a steady supply of new victims to exploit, and gained access to dozens of additional underage girls to abuse.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN, 66, is charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors, which carries a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison, and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison. (read more)

  1. As a father of 4 daughters and having a granddaughter, if this were to happen to any of them, there would be no need for a trial. Now that I have that out of the way, I have a huge problem with the feds. When asked by a reporter about the non-prosecution agreement that was signed by Epstein and the Southern District of Florida, he stated that SDNY was not a signatory to that agreement and therefore was not bound by the agreement. Bullshit! This was an agreement between the federal government and Epstein. Forget for the time being that the agreement should never have been made in the first place. So by this logic, let’s use an example. I owe the IRS back taxes. I sign an agreement for repayment and in return the IRS waives any penalties. After the money has been repaid, I get notified by the IRS that I owe the penalty plus interest. When I object that I signed an agreement already and upheld my end of the agreement, they replied that the agreement was with another office and they were not bound by that office’s agreement. By this new standard, any agreement with the government is now null and void the moment it’s made. At their discretion. Not yours. SNAFU!!!

        Lurking Lawyer here.
        Although I do not like the new double jeopardy decision either, it is unfortunately (IMO) correctly decided as a matter of basic constitutional law.
        A3s2.1 says US judicial power extends to laws of the US but not further.
        A4s4 says the US shall guarantee to every State a Republican form of government. That implies that if a state’s republican government passes a state crime law similar to a federal crime law, the Feds must respect it.
        And 5A second clause, “nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy” applies to federal law only. A state level offense based on the same actions is not ‘the same offense’. And the usual ‘dodge’ reading 14As1 ‘without due process’ does not apply, because the states have their own separate criminal due process.

        The remedy, should the USA feel it appropriate, is an explicit constitutional amendment modifying 10A ‘nor prohibited by it to the states’, to say that prosecuting a state crime after a federal acquittal on same fact set is hereby ‘prohibited’.

If I’m presented with a deal agreement from the DOJ, I would never think for a second that the deal was illegal. That due diligence should not be necessary on my part. After all, I’m dealing with the DOJ, right? So I would think that the deal is and should be legally binding. I’ve upheld my end of the deal. The DOJ is not even trying to say the deal was illegal and therefore it’s null and void. They’re saying that even though I have a written agreement with the DOJ, they are not going to honor the deal because it was not agreed to and signed by every employee of the DOJ. All 25,000 or however many people work there. That’s nuts!

        I agree with you. If there was illegal agreements made by the Florida DOJ office then those persons involved should be charged with a crime. However, unless Epstein was involved in payoffs for the agreement then the plea agreement will remain valid on his end. Only the DOJ should be punished. And, in a case as big as the Florida case was then before that agreement was made it would have be sent up the chain of command for approval. If the State of New York was doing the prosecution then the recent double jeopardy ruling by the Supreme Court would come into play but the Feds would not be allowed to renege of previous agreements. Besides, the plea agreement had to be approved by a federal judge at the time. It looks to me that the DOJ is just interested in the forfeiture part of the indictment.

    Some quick observations. Some of them might be contradictory, but this is what caught my attention:

    1. 2002 – 2005. That is WAAAY back. Why that time-frame? Now, insert the Trump quote about Epstein making the rounds this weekend. That was supposedly in 2002.

    2. Epstein (his lawyer) is already getting the word out about cooperating. This is nothing more than a warning to the Clintons and all the other power-brokers: Make this go away or I take you down.

    3. Pizza-gate anyone? Yeah, I know, a lot of people shot that down. Maybe…. or maybe not. Who knows? But there sure are a lot of powerful movers and shakers connected to Epstein…. and trips to his island.

    • The reason for the 2002-2005 time frame in the indictment is because prosecutors now have the cooperation of new witnesses (including women who worked FOR Epstein grooming victims). Their testimony covers that time period. Because of discovery, they have seized more incriminating material in raids, and there might be more charges and an expanded time frame.

      Pizzagate is still complete baloney. There aren’t any victims who have come forward, nor any families saying their child or relative was harmed. There’s no location matching the so-called basement. No police force takes it seriously either. But I’m wasting my time to repeat this. Some people will believe anything, no matter the facts or evidence.

        Not so sure about the cooperating employees. Normally, if the someone were cooperating they would be listed as an unindicted co-conspirator. I could be wrong but that is the way it worked during my years in law enforcement. And, I believe the 3 victims used in the indictment are the same ones who came forward in the Florida case, although I may be wrong on that count also.

    They don’t need his cooperation. They have plenty of evidence.

    He will cooperate with what? Naming a guy who abused a minor? That minor probably already named him.

    All they need now is bank records and things like that to put the puzzle together.

    If they have child porn images seized from his house that alone is a crime evidence. They will interview the victims. Probably already have.

    Did the underage girls get paid for sex? They will talk. They have nothing to lose.

    FTA.. (very salacious)
    Defendant Trump initiated sexual contact with Plaintiff at four different parties.
    On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied Plaintiff

    This sounds like a lie to me. Surely they would have used this in 2016 if they could have. Unless they were afraid it would harm Hillary worse because of Bubba/

    I have read the raid on Epstein’s mansion delivered photos and CD-ROM’s with labels, “A young ********* (girl’s name).” The raid also confirmed physical things, shared with the FBI by victims, present inside the mansion, only someone who had been in the house would know about.

    Look, if Trump was a target in the Epstein case, Maureen Comey would have a conflict of interest and would be required to recuse herself from the prosecution team.

    Now, if she even as much winks at her Dad about anything regarding the Epstein prosecution and/or discusses anything about this case with him, whether it involves Trump or not, she is toast.

  26. Why only Epstein’s New York, New York and Palm Beach, FL residences are named? A leopard doesn’t change his spots. He must be owning lot many homes in various locations / states. Why are these states not bringing any charges?

      Hollywood being in California surely Epstein has connections here, maybe homes too. However I wouldn’t expect the current governor to bring charges even if it were warranted. Toothsome Newsom doesn’t strike me as a righteous individual, but that is just me.

  28. All the Republican Congresscritters who “suddenly” decided to retire from politics in 2016? Lots of speculation at the time they were offered the opportunity to quit rather than face “something” upcoming. Just speculating too.

    I took a look at PACER, and it appears the indictment was filed under seal on July 2, 2019, and assigned to Judge Berman, unsealed today, post arrest on July 6. No explanation as to why the indictment only mentions the 2002 to 2005 time period, yet was only reached last week . Bail hearing will be next Monday.

    I don’t understand why it would not be double jeopardy as to crimes dealt with in the Florida non-prosecution agreement. Clearly it alleges crimes in Fl in 2002-05, so what’s different. This indictment also alleges crimes in NY during the same time period, and I don’t recall if the FL deal dealt with crimes other than those in FL.

    I also don’t understand why it deals with nothing after that. Did Jeffrey reform himself?

    I saw what I took to be a boastful tweet from Preet Bahrahrah, as if this was something he’d worked on and can take credit for. Why the years of delay?

    I think everyone could be misjudging why Maurene Comey is on the case. I’m hearing a lot of people jumping to the negative conclusion that she is “doing” this; pinning it on Trump or whatever…
    But I think it’s highly possible she was placed on this team purposely to prevent the MSM from crying witch hunt when the dominoes start falling.

          No. You go by the book. I’m not saying she should recuse just because. Read my comment below — it’s a clear-cut conflict of interest given an immediate family member is implicated in a public corruption case. The way you defend against critics is by doing things by the book, and DOJ rules call for recusal.

          I actually believe that if/when this inches closer to her dad, she indeed will recuse.

          I’m not sure what the analogy here is to the Mueller team. It was stacked with tainted/ostensibly biased prosecutors who produced a BS report, and that’s relevant how?

          If I had a nickel for every time someone tried to spin blatant corruption as somehow prudent or good optics; well, those that rely on MSM, which is half or more of the country, aren’t getting it.

          How about we go with Occam’s razor. Bad and cowardly and corrupt decisions are just that. I hope it gets corrected.

    The need for Maureen Comey to recuse is screamingly obvious.

    This is a public corruption case. Maureen’s dad was U.S. attorney for SDNY and then Deputy AG during the relevant time periods (2002-2005). In other words, an immediate family member held top leadership/supervisory roles in public offices that are necessarily implicated, during the time periods in which the public corruption is alleged to have occured.

    The only more obvious recusal was for Rosenstein to step aside on the “obstruction” probe, having recommended the act Trump was being investigated for (i.e., firing Comey).

    Which I guess means we shouldn’t hold our breath.

    But seriously, could they be a little more subtle in the cover-ups?

        It’s true being surrounded by other prosecutors helps guard against mischief.

        But please can we drop this idea that a competent, professional DOJ should ignore conflicts of interest out of deference to bad-faith critics?

        Barr was hired to restore regular order. Run things by the book. Let’s hope he starts.

    Can someone point to direct evidence that Clinton was on Epstein’s jet 26 times and also dismissed his SS detail to do so. I’ve seen this information around for a good bit. But, now a Clinton spokes person has finally made a statement that contradicts this, or sets up another narrative. I don’t like rumor without proof.
