Questions of Preferential Treatment Are Raised in Sex Case Against Money Manager
That's deep stuff man.The owner was Jeffrey Epstein, 53, an intensely private New York money manager with several billionaire clients. Months earlier, the stepmother of a 14-year-old girl told the Palm Beach police that a wealthy older man, whom the girl later identified as Mr. Epstein, might have had inappropriate sexual contact with her.
In sworn statements to the police, the 14-year-old and other teenage girls said a friend had arranged for them to visit Mr. Epstein’s home and give him massages, usually in their underwear, in exchange for cash.
Most of the girls, according to the police, said Mr. Epstein had masturbated during the massages, and a few said he had penetrated them with his fingers or penis. They identified him in photos and accurately described the inside of his home. Some recalled that his employees had fed them snacks or rented them cars.
Mr. Epstein pleaded not guilty in August to the crime he was ultimately charged with, soliciting prostitution. But at a time when prosecutors around the nation have become increasingly severe in dealing with people accused of sex offenses, the case has raised questions about whether Mr. Epstein’s prominence won him preferential treatment.
By the account of the police, they found probable cause to charge Mr. Epstein with much more serious offenses: one count of lewd and lascivious molestation and four counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
But instead of proceeding with such charges on his own, the Palm Beach County state attorney took the rare step of presenting a broad range of possible charges to a grand jury, which indicted Mr. Epstein in July on the lesser count. In Florida, prosecutors usually refer only capital cases to grand juries.
Even before the indictment, the Palm Beach police chief, Michael Reiter, had accused prosecutors of giving Mr. Epstein special treatment and asked the state attorney, Barry E. Krischer, to remove himself from the case.
In an editorial, The Palm Beach Post attacked Mr. Krischer, a Democrat whose post is elective, saying the public had been left “to wonder whether the system tilted in favor of a wealthy, well-connected alleged perpetrator and against very young girls who are alleged victims of sex crimes.”
WOW! This may be the piece from the Palm Beach Post. IF those charges against Dershowitz are true, that would mean he was protecting himself. WOW!!!!! THAT IS DEEP!!!!! WOW!!!!
Epstein: Undeserved freedom: Even his front group has been disbanded...
Jeffrey Epstein's yearlong probation ends today. Epstein's punishment didn't fit his crimes, but that hasn't stopped the billionaire money manager who paid teenage girls for sex and massages at his Palm Beach mansion from complaining.
As The Post's Jane Musgrave reported, Epstein whined to probation officers about the restrictions of his sentence. Yeah, he had it tough. During the first four months of this year, Epstein traveled nearly every week to his home in New York City or his private Caribbean island - with the approval of his probation officers. During the 13 months he served of his 18-month sentence - in the Palm Beach County Jail instead of state prison, where inmates with such sentences usually go - Epstein was let out on weekdays and some weekends as part of a work-release program.
Epstein supposedly spent that time at the Florida Science Foundation, which he created before he was sentenced. State records, however, show that the business, which was supposed to finance grants, hasn't been active since September. The phone has been disconnected. Yet the West Palm Beach not-for-profit is listed as Epstein's place of business on his probation documents and on his sex offender registration.
Epstein's soft time flowed from his soft treatment by state and federal law-enforcement officials after Palm Beach police first turned his case over to then-State Attorney Barry Krischer in 2006. Mr. Krischer gave the case to a grand jury instead of charging Epstein. The grand jury indicted him on two felony counts, solicitation of prostitution and procuring a person under the age of 18 for prostitution. Those charges accounted for one of as many as 35 girls, one as young as 14, who say that Epstein sexually abused them.
The U.S. Attorney's Office and the FBI investigated after allegations that Mr. Krischer's office wasn't doing enough. Instead of filing charges that would have led to more prison time, federal officials struck an unusual, secret non-prosecution agreement in which Epstein would plead guilty to the state charges, register as a sex offender and serve the 18 months.
Spencer Kuvin, the attorney for the woman who was 14 when she first gave Epstein a sexually charged massage, said of his client, now 20, "Both the criminal process and the civil process just really disgusted her. She felt that he didn't receive anywhere near the punishment he should have received." His client, along with about two dozen others, reached a confidential settlement with Epstein.
Mr. Kuvin said the system failed: "It's unusual that the U.S. Attorney's Office allowed the state to essentially plead out a single victim on a single charge and then essentially ignore the other 34 girls that were in the federal indictment. Where's the investigation for those girls? Where's the justice for those girls?" The system is done with Epstein. Bad as he looks, the system looks just as bad.
Look, the sweet deal Epstein received thanks in part by Dershowitz that protected all his powerful," friends ", was not justice at all but very wealthy/powerful people able to sway the outcome and they were willing to destroy anyone who got in their way.
You know some of these girls that Epstein had his procurers (six known by name) to solicit under aged girls for his pleasure and the pleasure of his "friends" were often from poor homes looking for a way to make money or they were run aways on the street just trying to survive.
