WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. ó By August, a federal judge should have the information he needs to decide whether to throw out a controversial agreement that allowed billionaire Jeffrey Epstein to escape federal prosecution for having sex with teens at his Palm Beach mansion.

In an order on Monday, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra set a brisk schedule for prosecutors and the young womenís attorneys to follow to help him unravel an unprecedented legal mess that was created in 2007 when the deal was inked.

Marra in February ruled that federal prosecutors violated the womenís rights by not conferring with them before deciding to shelve a 52-page federal indictment accusing Epstein, 66, of having sex with minors.

Kansas judge calls teenage girls 'aggressors' in sex abuse case and gives defendant reduced sentence

------------------------

ďI've known Jeff (Epstein) for 15 years. Terrific guy,'' Trump told New York Magazine back in 2002. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it - Jeffrey enjoys his social life."
