BREAKING: New victims come forward as accused child sex trafficker asks to be released from jail



New victims come forward as Epstein asks to be released from jail to his Manhattan mansion

At least a dozen new victims have come forward to claim they were sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein even as the multimillionaire money manager tries to convince a federal judge to allow him to await a sex trafficking trial from the comfort of the same $77 million Manhattan mansion where he’s accused of luring teenage girls into unwanted sex acts.

Following Epstein’s arrest Saturday in New Jersey, four women have reached out to New York lawyer David Boies, and at least 10 other women have approached other lawyers who have represented dozens of Epstein’s alleged victims in the past.

Jack Scarola, a Palm Beach attorney, said at least five women, all of whom were minors at the time of their encounters with Epstein, have reached out to either him or Fort Lauderdale lawyer Brad Edwards.

“The people we are speaking to are underage victims in Florida and in New York. They are not individuals whose claims have previously been part of any law enforcement investigation,’’ Scarola said.

1. There will probably be TV commercials soon




Keyword advertising on the name “Epstein” is taking off.

7. I know, right?

If he’d have managed to hang in there for a couple of more months of his Ponzi law practice, he might yet have had a shot at getting enough money to fix all his problems.

If Epstein also gave anyone defective medical devices, the entire contingent fee litigation community will have a simultaneous orgasm.

40. Well, take this article as an example


When people read an article like this, they don't think, "How did this come to the attention of the reporter?"

The article mentions two lawyers in one particular Florida firm, and quotes one of them about it.

That puts the reporter in an interesting position. On the one hand, it is a local story and there is significant news that other women are contacting lawyer. But what sort of gets buried is the self-promotion dynamic of how that happens.

41. With the extent of Epstien's activities, the ads will probably push out the Mesothelioma ads.

Maybe even cut into the 1-800-CASH-NOW band wagon.

5. May he rot in jail

...for the rest of his natural life without ever stepping free again--not even to and from court (he should be shackled). His property should be seized and sold to cover unpaid taxes and the balance put in a fund to aid under-aged victims of sex trafficking.

I know Epstein is being charged in a Federal Court but it was an interesting read. I wasn't aware of this.

26. I wonder if some significant people were caught in some kind of "honey pot".

It would explain the behavior of a lot of people who have sacrificed their good names enabling and defending this Administration. People like Barr who, while a Republican was at least respected in his field. People like Lindsey Graham and even Trump himself.

And where did Epstein get all his money and the free time to set up this sex ring? And who is really pulling the strings?

32. Highly likely

From what I read, Epstein kept proof of others “partaking” in the “massage” services. He wanted to prevent his clients from ratting him out.

I bet Acosta has something to hide. That would explain a lot.

31. Good (in a way)

More victims means less of a chance he walks away from this. I hope he never again sees the outside of a prison cell.

However, I’m horrified by the number of victims. One is too many.
