Jeffrey Epstein, who died by apparent suicide in a Manhattan jail last year, had lots of powerful connections including presidents, royals, and businessmen. The highest-profile man to be involved in the case is Britain’s Prince Andrew, who vehemently denies charges of sexual abuse brought by Epstein’s alleged sex slave.
One of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers has claimed that the late financier forced her to have sex with Prince Andrew in order to get incriminating information on the royal.
The woman alleged that Epstein had instructed her, then a minor, to “report back on the details of the sexual abuse” by the prince, according to court documents filed in December 2014.
The woman was identified in the filing only as Jane Doe #3 and elsewhere in the same case as Virginia Giuffre. She was one of the first women to publicly accuse the millionaire of sexual trafficking and abuse.
As recent documents were unsealed, revelations that Dershowitz was accused of having sex with an underage girl facilitated by Epstein amid the recent Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking scandals following Epstein’s former girlfriend and confidant, Ghislaine Maxwell, arrest by the FBI. One prominent accuser, Virginia Giuffre, claims that he was coaxed into having sex with the prominent lawyer at Epstein’s behest.
In the column, originally written for the LA Times in 1997, unearthed in a “hit piece” by the New Yorker, Dershowitz points out how “if a 16-year-old can choose abortion, she should be able to choose to have sex.”
He then broaches the prevalence of sexual encounters in girls before their 15th birthday, before arguing for a Constitutional case to lower the age of consent.
“It is obvious that there must be criminal sanctions against sex with very young children, but it is doubtful whether such sanctions should apply to teenagers above the age of puberty, since voluntary sex is so common in their age group,” Dershowitz writes.
According to a former member of the Royal guard who worked on Prince Andrew’s security detail, The London Metropolitan Police have destroyed evidence that could have revealed where Prince Andrew was on the night that he is accused of having sex with a teenager that was being trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.
The night in question is March 10th, 2011, as well as the morning hours of March 11. Virginia Giuffre, who was known by the name Virginia Roberts at the time, says that she was taken to London by Epstein and Maxwell and was expected to have sex with Prince Andrew.Giuffre says that she was just 17-years-old at the time and remembers being taken to the “Tramp” nightclub in London, as well as one of Maxwell’s homes in the city.
Andrew was questioned about Giuffre’s accusations during an interview with BBC, and he made numerous mistakes and fumbles that brought his credibility into question.
Not worried about coronavirus concerns, hundreds of people came together at the Arizona Capitol to raise awareness about sex trafficking. They heard from different speakers around 5:30 p.m. on Friday before a peaceful march in the area. Some held signs that said “Save The Children” and “Child Lives Matter.”
“This is happening in all communities,” said Laura Suttle, a demonstrator. “This isn’t just a Phoenix problem. This isn’t an Arizona problem. This is world, human problem.”
Some of the protesters weren’t wearing masks, and the large group stayed close together. But they were passionate about the cause and wanted to get the word out that even during the pandemic, sex trafficking of kids and adults isn’t going away.
Court documents were unsealed in the Ghislaine Maxwell case Thursday, and revealed that a witness claims to have seen Bill Clinton on the infamous ‘pedo island’ along with Epstein, Maxwell and “two young girls”.
The claims in the documents echo those previously made by a former worker on Epstein’s island in a Netflix documentary.
The claims run contrary to denials by Clinton that he ever visited the island, which was reportedly the site of multiple sexual assaults of underage women by the convicted pedophile Epstein and his elite guests.
The allegations were made by Steve Scully, a 70-year-old phone and internet specialist worker who was present on the island of Little Saint James, as part of Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, which features testimony from witnesses and victims of Epstein’s sordid activities.
The day after the release of dozens of files in her case, Jeffrey Epstein’s accused accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell scored a win Friday in her quest to delay the release of a deposition said to incriminate her.
The Second Circuit’s two-page order, which does not explain the judges’ reasoning, keeps the status quo of document’s sealing until the court can rule on her motion to block its release entirely.
Prosecutors claim that Maxwell perjured herself in the April 2016 deposition by denying knowledge of any sex-trafficking scheme.
A lawyer representing alleged victims of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein accused Ghislaine Maxwell’s legal representation Wednesday of attempting to harass and intimidate victims by requesting that their names be made public.
The British socialite and heiress’s lawyers have requested that the Manhattan Federal Court publicly name “individuals who have spoken on the public record,” according to Newsweek.
Attorney Gloria Allred told the Daily Caller News Foundation Wednesday that the motion should be denied, since Maxwell’s defense “does not appear to provide any legal reason why the defense would benefit from revealing the names of victims.”
Ghislaine Maxwell ambushed prosecutors by asking for a gag order on witnesses in her criminal trial, court documents seen by DailyMail.com claim.
Maxwell’s lawyers filed an affidavit in her child sex trafficking case on Monday, asking a New York judge to prevent prosecution witnesses from publishing information about the case online.
Prosecutors scrambled to file a letter to Judge Alison Nathan in response, claiming they had been negotiating with Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam’s legal team ‘as recently as 6p.m. last night’ and were surprised by the gagging request.
The British socialite’s attorney wrote to Judge Nathan asking her to keep discovery materials from being published, but wanted permission to identify witnesses and Maxwell’s alleged victims who have already come forward in the case.
Ghislaine Maxwell, who allegedly helped convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein recruit underaged girls for sex, knows a LOT.
Now, her defense attorneys are trying to keep from public view sensitive evidence ahead of her trial — “including any nude photos and sexualized videos that will be marked ‘highly confidential,’ according to court documents,” the New York Post reports.
In a proposed protective order filed Monday, Maxwell’s attorneys detailed the discovery materials they believe should be kept out of public view and filed under seal in the Manhattan federal court case. This included the “highly confidential” information, which they said should not be “disseminated, transmitted, or otherwise copied.”
“Highly Confidential Information contains nude, partially-nude, or otherwise sexualized images, videos, or other depictions of individuals,” the court papers state.
The wife of an aristocrat who flew more than 30 times on Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ private jet has stepped down from her role at the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
Clare Hazell raised thousands of pounds for the charity by hosting a classic car show each year at her family’s sprawling Elveden Estate in Norfolk.
The Mail on Sunday last month revealed that the interior designer – who became the Countess of Iveagh in 2001 when she married Edward Guinness, 4th Earl of Iveagh and a member of the brewing dynasty – had repeatedly travelled with serial paedophile Epstein on his private jet.
Flight logs revealed she took 32 flights between 1998 and 2000, including trips to his homes in New York, Florida, the Caribbean and New Mexico.
