“Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon,” says one of the court documents. “Case agent advised that no federal prosecution will occur in this matter as long as Epstein continues to uphold his agreement with the state of Florida.
Epstein was convicted of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution, for which he served thirteen months in prison. The FBI had received allegations from about 40 girls of molestation by Epstein.
The Guardian said, "[T]he US government eventually agreed to allow Epstein to plead guilty to just one count of soliciting prostitution from an underage girl under Florida state law. ... Epstein agreed not to contest civil claims brought by the 40 women identified by the FBI, but escaped a prosecution that could have seen him jailed for the rest of his life. ... Prosecutors agreed not to bring far more serious federal charges against Epstein, and not to charge "potential co-conspirators", including four named individuals."
Flight records show Bill Clinton flew on Epstein's plane 26 times.
Epstein's New York home is reputedly the largest private residence in Manhattan.
