Woman accuses Epstein associate of ordering sex with prominent men

Federal prosecutors in NY charged Epstein with operating a sex trafficking ring in which he allegedly sexually abused dozens of underage girls, some as young as 14, across the Atlantic coast in NY in Florida.

Last month, shortly after he was denied bail, he was found semi-conscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.

He was confined in the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in Manhattan, while he appealed a district judge's refusal to let him live under 24-hour guard in his home on the Upper East Side of NY.

The facility is widely considered to be one of the most secure in the country.

The Ms Giuffre deposition and the other documents were released after a federal appeals court in Manhattan rejected Ms Maxwell's bid to keep them under seal.

What was he charged with?

Epstein was accused of paying girls under the age of 18 to perform sex acts at his Manhattan and Florida mansions between 2002 and 2005.

Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, had pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls, some as young as 14.

Last month, Alex Acosta resigned as United States labor secretary amid a backlash over the deal that he negotiated with Epstein in that case while he was a federal prosecutor in Florida.

The arrest brought renewed attention to Epstein's earlier plea agreement, which critics criticized as too lenient, ultimately leading Acosta to resign from his powerful Cabinet post.

Epstein, a convicted sex offender who befriended numerous politicians and celebrities over the years, hanged himself in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, The New York Times and other media said, quoting officials.

He had pleaded not guilty to the allegations and would face up to 45 years in prison if convicted.

These include Bill Clinton, George Stephanopoulos, Donald Trump, Katie Couric, and Woody Allen.

Magazine profiles followed and established Epstein's reputation as a stealthy yet exorbitantly successful money man with a gilded social circle and as somewhat ascetic streak.

Last month, Mr Trump said he had not spoken to Mr Epstein for 15 years.

Reports of Epstein's wealth vary, with his Virgin Islands-based firm generating no public records. McCawley called on federal authorities to continue their investigation, focusing on Epstein associates who she said "participated and facilitated Epstein's horrifying sex trafficking scheme".

The Palm Beach police in Florida started investigating Epstein in 2005 after a parent complained that he molested her 14-year-old daughter.

They claim that with the current charges, the federal government is reneging on that deal. Later in the year, the case is referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
