For many Americans, no punishment will ever be enough for Jeffrey Epstein.
The ultra wealthy and well-connected financier is currently imprisoned on charges of child sex trafficking and related conspiracies, but this isn’t his first brush with infamy. In 2008 Epstein skated on solicitation charges after accusations arose about his sexual assaults of underaged girls. That plea deal received massive amounts of criticism from around the nation, giving his more recent arrest an air of uncertainty.
Now, the Governor of Florida is looking into the previous case against Epstein, and promising to uncover any litigious malpractice or legal wrongdoing that may have occurred.
The arrangement, under which Epstein was allowed to serve most of his 13-month state sentence on work release without fear of federal charges, has already cost Alex Acosta his job as U.S. labor secretary. As the U.S. attorney in Miami at the time, Acosta signed off on the non-prosecution deal, which went into effect in 2008.
Acosta’s office reached the deal to halt the federal sex abuse investigation involving dozens of teenage girls in return for Epstein pleading guilty to lower state charges involving a single victim.
Epstein has been a focal point for many amateur investigators in America, given his high profile lifestyle and his gaggle of famous friends.
Of note, Epstein spent a seemingly great deal of time with former President Bill Clinton, and was once asked to leave President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort after an altercation with a young woman.
