Jeffrey Epstein arrested in NY on sex charges

07 Juillet, 2019, 06:21 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

News reports Epstein was flying from Paris to NY and was arrested Saturday.

According to The Daily Beast, Epstein will be charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors, and could face a maximum of 45 years in prison if convicted. Sources also say the sealed indicted that led to his arrest by the Federal Bureau of Investigation will be unsealed on Monday.

"That bail hearing will be critical because if they grant him bail, he will disappear and they will never get him, " a source in NY told the Herald.

Epstein faces charges brought by U.S. prosecutors in Manhattan, after previously evading similar charges when he secured a non-prosecution deal with federal prosecutors in Miami. As a result, he pled guilty to procuring a minor for prostitution in 2008 and served 13 months in jail. Acosta reportedly oversaw the agreement and has since defended the plea deal as appropriate under the circumstances.

Rumors had been circulating for months that Epstein was under investigation on sex charges in the Southern District of NY.

The agreement also granted immunity to Epstein's co-conspirators.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but Epstein has always been accused of sexual abuse.

In 2008, the former hedge fund manager and Bill Clinton mega-donor brokered a much criticized plea deal to avoid federal criminal charges, pleading to lesser charges of soliciting sex from an underage girl.

The deal was also a non-prosecution agreement, essentially shutting down an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into whether there were more victims and other powerful people who may have been involved, according to the Miami Herald.

NEW YORK (AP) - Wealthy financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested Saturday in New York on sex-trafficking charges involving allegations that date to the 2000s, according to law enforcement officials.
