Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire who was convicted for molesting underage girls, is being sued not only for making a woman who calls herself Jane Doe #3 a sex slave, but for prostituting her out to his friends, who included heads of state, Alan Dershowitz, Prince Andrew and many others. Others implicated in the abuse are Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite and model scout Jean Luc Brunel.
Prosecutors in Florida are accused of violating victims rights when they reached a plea bargain with Epstein without consulting the victims. The claim is that Epstein’s money, influence and legal team gave him an unfair advantage in the case, and the plea bargain was a “sweet deal.” Epstein served 13 months of an 18 month sentence, and is a registered sex offender.
