Epstein Ready to Post $100,000,000.00 Bail

  • Accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is willing to post bail as high as $100 million, his lawyer said Monday at a detention hearing for the former friend of Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.
  • A prosecutor argued the case against Epstein, a wealthy investor, is “already significantly stronger and getting stronger every single day.”
  • Trump’s Labor secretary, Alex Acosta, resigned last week after outrage over a nonprosecution deal he cut with Epstein more than a decade ago as Miami’s top federal prosecutor.

Accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is willing to post bail as high as $100 million, his lawyer said Monday, as a prosecutor argued that the case against the wealthy investor is “already significantly stronger and getting stronger every single day.”

Two accusers of Epstein also urged Judge Richard Berman at a detention hearing in Manhattan federal court to keep him locked up without bail, as prosecutors also are arguing.

Berman said he will wait until Thursday morning to decide whether to grant Epstein bail.

“Your honor, my name is Courtney Wild and I was sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein at the age of 14,” one of the accusers told Berman. “He is a scary person to have walking the street.” Wild said she was abused by Epstein in Palm Beach, Florida.
