It truly does look as though Jeffrey Epstein’s luck has run out.
And, to be fair, it was likely never luck. In all likelihood we will come to find out that Epstein was simply bribing, blackmailing, and doing God-knows-what-else in order to keep himself out of harm’s way. This man’s wealth wasn’t just in cash, but in information as well. The gathered piles of “dirt” Epstein collected are likely on a level that we never even considered to exist.
That’s why, after his arrest just days ago, many Americans just sort of threw their hands in the air, assuming that Epstein would once again be released on bail and eventually plead out to some lesser charge. He’d then fade back into relative obscurity for some time, maybe surfacing again, maybe not.
But this time it’s different. Epstein’s arrest has led to a massive influx of information about the wicked and wealthy financier’s debauchery.
This time, it will be too much to let him walk away from.
And, to top it all off, Epstein spat in the face of the legal system during his previous time as a ward of the state, continuing to abuse young women while still technically serving time.
An attorney representing Jeffrey Epstein accusers said Tuesday that at least one woman has come forward to say she was abused while the financier was on work release as part of his lenient 2007 plea deal.
Lawyer Brad Edwards said Epstein was allowed to have visitors while he was supposed to be working during the 13-month sentence.
“It was not for some business arrangement and it was for… improper sexual contact,” Edwards said, adding that the new accusers said they were under 21, though they may not have been minors.
“He just wasn’t in jail. He only slept there. He was in his office most of the day and what I can tell you he had visitors, female visitors,” Edwards said.
“All I can say is more than one person that visited him,” Edwards said, declining to provide more details because of ongoing litigation. “They believed they were going there for something other than a sexual purpose.
“Once there, he used his perfect master manipulation to turn the situation into something sexual,” Edwards said. “Not one of the individuals was a prostitute. These were all people who at the time that wanted something. They came over under false pretenses and he manipulated them and now his attorneys have labeled them prostitutes.”
We have a feeling that this is just the sort of behavior that judges dream about reprimanding a perpetrator for, and we highly doubt Epstein’s going to be getting off easy this go-round.
