Jeffrey Epstein's last days were filled with lawyers, vermin, and vending machines in a badly understaffed Manhattan jail, the New York Times reports.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges, which carried a maximum sentence of 45 years in convicted.

The medical examiner was waiting on toxicology results and other reports from federal investigators before announcing their thoughts on Epstein's cause of death.

"It is indisputable that the authorities violated their own protocols", the lawyers said, decrying the "harsh, even medieval conditions" at the facility.

Weeks prior to his death, Epstein was found on the floor of his cell with marks on his neck in what was called an apparent suicide attempt.

On July 23, Epstein was found unconscious in his cell, the Metropolitan Correctional Center, with injuries to his neck, and been placed on suicide watch, but then removed from regular observation.

While the witness was there, he reportedly did not see Epstein's main lawyer, Reid Weingarten, or other named attorneys visiting him. President Donald Trump himself joined in, retweeting an unsubstantiated claim suggesting that former president Bill Clinton was somehow responsible for Epstein's death.
