PALM BEACH PERV Jeffrey Epstein Paid Victims MILLIONS!

PALM BEACH — The legal dramas of  Palm Beach pedophile Jeffrey Epstein appear to be without end.

Epstein, 64, was accused of procuring dozens of underage girls to serve as sex slaves for his well-heeled friends.

On the “criminal” front, the billionaire pled guilty in 2008 to soliciting prostitution from a 14-year-old girl as part of a plea deal that ended with an 18-month sentence for Epstein (of which he served 13).

On the “civil” front, he’s been assailed by lawsuits from more than 2 dozen of his victims.

Recent reports indicate that at least 3 of those victims have prevailed in a big way. One of the girls—identified as “Jane Doe”—received a payment of $2.5 million. Two others—known as “L.M.” and “E.W.”—received $1 million and $2 million respectively.

If other suits are successful, it could represent a meaningful dent in the billionaire’s net worth.

Epstein’s legal woes also include an ongoing feud with disgraced lawyer and Ponzi-scheme-purveyor Scott Rothstein and another attorney, Bradley Edwards.

Rothstein is presently serving 50 years for helming a Ponzi scheme to the tune of $1.2 billion. Edwards, for his part, merely filed suits for some of Epstein’s victims (including Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who created her own legal drama by falsely accusing famed attorney Alan Dershowitz as one of her abusers).

Epstein has sued both lawyers, alleging that Edwards invented the sex-slave narrative to perpetuate the Ponzi scheme overseen by Rothstein. The move failed to pay off for the billionaire, who ended up dropping his suit in 2012 before promptly getting slammed with a countersuit from Edwards for malicious prosecution.

This latest case in the ongoing saga of Epstein v. Edwards is slated for trial in December; Epstein’s attorney Tonja Haddad Coleman requested a postponement on Tuesday, citing her inability to reach Epstein since Hurricane Irma laid waste to his estate in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Donald Hafele refused, saying Epstein had the means, and a private jet to get himself back to Palm Beach County for the trial.

December will no doubt bring more drama and legal fireworks.

    Stop saying that Jeffrey Epstein is a billionaire, he is not worth that much money. Apparently you think the story has more validity by mentioning this false assessment of his net worth.

    Stop saying that Jeffrey Epstein is a billionaire, he is not worth that much money. Apparently you think the story has more validity by mentioning this false assessment of his net worth.

    From Forbes “The source of his wealth — a money management firm in the U.S. Virgin Islands — generates no public records, nor has his client list ever been released. One known client, Leslie Wexner, billionaire founder of The Limited clothing chain, was widely believed to be his benefactor for years and the major source of his wealth: at one time, Epstein was listed as a trustee of The Wexner Foundation, and Wexner reportedly bought Epstein a $13 million New York apartment.

    But once Epstein was charged with engaging in sexual activity with minors, Wexner dropped his old friend, replacing him with JPMorgan’s Dennis Hersch. Without Wexner’s backing, Epstein is almost certainly not a billionaire — so why is he continually labeled one in the press?”
