New Jeffrey Epstein accuser goes public; defamation lawsuit targets Dershowitz

Source: Miami Herald

By Emily Michot | Julie K. Brown

A new victim has gone public in the Jeffrey Epstein case, filing a sworn affidavit in federal court in New York Tuesday, saying that she was sexually assaulted and her then-15-year-old sister molested by Epstein and his companion, Ghislaine Maxwell, in 1996.

Maria Farmer, then 26, claims she was employed by Epstein, a multimillionaire financier who lived in a vast mansion on New York’s Upper East Side, and that she frequently saw “school-age girls’’ wearing uniforms come into the mansion and go upstairs. She was told that the girls were auditioning for modeling work, according to her affidavit.

Then an art student in New York, Farmer said she reported her assault to New York police and the FBI in 1996. FBI documents released April 1 make a reference to Farmer having been interviewed in 2006 or 2007. However, Farmer, now 49, said the FBI did not take any action against Epstein and Maxwell.

“To my knowledge, I was the first person to report Maxwell and Epstein to the FBI. It took a significant amount of bravery for me to make that call because I knew how incredibly powerful and influential both Epstein and Maxwell were, particularly in the art community,’’ she wrote.

8. The MH video on how the girls were recruited

The Miami Herald video shows exactly how girls are recruited into the sex trade. There is a video on the Homeland Security website on sex trafficking. The video is for the Blue Campaign to educate people on what to look for with human and sex trafficking. In particular "Erika's Story" shows how girls are recruited and then used to recruit others with money and gifts. This is exactly how Epstein worked. His wealth however protects him from prosecution.
