Wall Street manager Epstein charged with sexual abuse


DNew York hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein has long been a well-known figure in the elitist circles of power and money. When real estate entrepreneur Donald Trump served the tabloids with his escapades, the later American president of the magazine "New York" gave a meaningful quote for a portrait of Epstein in 2002. Epstein is a "great guy", he has known for 15 years. "It's a lot of fun to be with him. It even means that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. "More recently, Epstein was arrested for dealing with very young women – still at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, after serving with his Private plane had returned from Paris.

The New York federal prosecutor accuses the 66-year-old financier of abusing dozens of minor girls and building an illegal sex trade ring between 2002 and 2005. Some of the girls were only 14 years old, the prosecution said. Hundreds of nude photos of underage girls were taken during a house search. Epstein's House is Manhattan's largest estate, a townhouse in a prime location on the posh Upper East Side.

The deal with Epstein's lawyers

The rumors and allegations against Epstein, who once counted former President Bill Clinton and British Prince Andrew as his friends, have been around for years. The man is registered as a sex offender and served a 13-month prison sentence in Florida ten years ago. But the regional newspaper "Miami Herald" recently revealed in a series of investigative stories how Epstein had escaped harsher punishment because of his good connections.

For example, during his detention in Florida, Epstein was a prisoner and was able to work six days a week in his office during that time. The Florida Attorney General initially prepared a lawsuit, but then gave up prosecution and got involved in a deal with Epstein's lawyers. Under the agreement, Epstein pleaded guilty to two Florida-related crimes involving prostitution in a Florida state court – for which he was given the short prison term. In the case of a federal conviction, Epstein would have been sentenced to life imprisonment. In New York, he is now facing a maximum of 45 years imprisonment.

Spicy is the matter, because Florida State Attorney Alexander Acosta, then Minister of Labor in the Cabinet of Donald Trump is. Acosta was personally involved in the case and met privately with one of Epstein's lawyers, one of his former colleagues. Virginia Giuffre, one of the women who accused Epstein of sexually abusing her as a teenager, was working at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, owned by Trump. A lawyer from Trump has since denied that the president used to socialize with Epstein.

Epstein is often referred to as a billionaire, but the sources of his wealth are a mystery in the financial industry. "He is supposed to lead a huge foreign exchange trading company. But I have never heard of him or his company, neither worked nor traded with him, "said Enrique Diaz-Alvarez, who is responsible for risk management at UK investment firm Ebury. The only known fact is that Epstein grew up in New York's Brooklyn neighborhood and studied at two universities, which he left without a degree.
