Jeffrey Epstein, convicted pedophile and alleged child sex trafficker, was a well-connected man – and that fact is now coming back to haunt some of the biggest names in pop culture.
The wealthy financier had friends in some very high places, including Hollywood, Washington DC, and Buckingham Palace…just to name a few. Now that Epstein is dead, however, there are concerns about what will become of the information gleaned from the now-dismissed case against him.
For many, the logical next step would be to reveal as much information as legally possible, in order to give his victims at least that slight bit of justice.
One of Epstein’s pals is praying that doesn’t happen, and is now pleading with a judge not to name names.

An anonymous man terrified he’s about to be named in court papers related to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell’s alleged child sex trafficking ring is begging a judge not to release his name and identities of others accused — because it could tarnish their reputations, according to a surprise motion filed Tuesday.
Lawyers for the John Doe filed the letter Tuesday — just a day before Epstein’s self-proclaimed “sex slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre is expected to join her lawyers in court as they continue efforts to unseal thousands of pages of documents related to her civil lawsuit against the dead pedophile’s alleged procuress.
“As a non-party to these proceedings, Doe lacks specific knowledge about the contents of the Sealed Materials,” his lawyers wrote to Manhattan federal court judge Loretta Preska. “But it is clear that these materials implicate the privacy and reputational interests of many persons other than the two primary parties to this action, Giuffre and Maxwell.”
The coming document dump could be enormous, according to Giuffre’s lawyers, who intimated that the cache of material would dwarf the already 2,000+ pages of information that has been released.
