Jeffrey Epstein Denied Bail On Sex Trafficking charges
Billion Jeffrey Epstein has been denied bail in his safe sex trafficking case against minors.
A New York federal judge handed down the decision on Thursday adding that Epstein posed a flight risk and was a significant danger to the community.
“The government application for continued remand is hereby granted,” Judge Berman said just minutes after the pretrial proceeding began.
The defense had initially offered a $77 million bail package, including Epstein’s private jet and Manhattan mansion, however, the judge said no amount of money could help with his case.
“I doubt any bail package can overcome” any danger to the community, Berman added.
During Monday’s hearing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller added that the government’s case against Epstein is “getting stronger every single day” with numerous woman coming forward to say he abused them as a minor.
According to CNN, one woman begged the judge to keep him in jail adding that she was abused when she was just 14 in Palm Beach, Florida.
“He’s a scary person to have walking the streets,” Courtney Wild said in court.
As we reported, Epstein has been charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors. He allegedly paid young girls to have sex with him at his Upper East Side home and his home in Palm Beach, Florida, from 2002 and 2005.
