Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy convicted sex offender facing new child trafficking charges, was denied bail and will remain behind bars until his trial.
Epstein was denied bail today by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in a New York court. The prosecution cited Epstein’s phony passport and love of jet-setting around the globe while persuading the judge to make his decision.
“I doubt that any bail package can overcome danger to the community,” U.S. District Judge Richard Berman said Thursday.
The defense had argued he should be allowed to await trial under house arrest with electronic monitoring at his $77 million Manhattan mansion. They said he wouldn’t run and was willing to pledge a fortune of at least $559 million as collateral.
A Saudi Arabian passport with his face paired with an assumed name was discovered in Epstein’s possession when federal authorities raided his New York mansion.
Federal investigators say they have found a fake Saudi Arabian passport with an alias alongside mounds of cash in convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein’s New York City mansion, as their case goes stronger against the Democratic Party-connected predator.
Epstein allegedly obtained the passport in the 1980s, and it had only recently expired before it was found by the feds. It has been widely speculated that Epstein’s connections shielded him from justice for all these years despite widespread knowledge of his illicit activities, and the Saudi passport may be the key to finally getting some real answers about who protected Epstein.
The prosecution claimed this fake passport clearly made Epstein a flight risk, as he is apparently able to obtain fraudulent documents that could allow him to escape the reach of the federal government, even if released on house arrest.
Epstein had previously offered his mansion and several of his family’s assets in an attempt to be released on house arrest.
Prosecution also claimed the case against Epstein is “getting stronger every single day” as more evidence against Epstein is gathered and more victims come forward.
Epstein is accused of sexually abusing and trafficking multiple teenage girls in the late 1990s and early 2000s. President Bill Clinton famously flew on Epstein’s private jet, dubbed The Lolita Express, at least 26 times.

Prosecutors Salivate at ‘No Evidence’ Precedent Established for Sexual Assault Cases After Weinstein Conviction
Due process and the presumption of innocence are under attack.
As many cheer after predatory scumbag and sex pervert Harvey Weinstein was convicted of rape charges earlier this week, ambitious prosecutors are salivating at the precedent set by the case, which may be applied to individuals not as sleazy and well-connected as the former Hollywood mogul.
Weinstein was convicted of third-degree rape despite the fact that there was no physical evidence of any crimes taking place, the supposed victims maintained their relationships with him years after the incidents occurred, and the alleged crimes were not reported for many years after the fact. The flimsy evidence was bolstered by “expert testimony” from activist feminists telling the jury essentially to believe all women, no matter what.
Profit-seeking attorneys and heavy-handed prosecutors see a golden opportunity in the “no evidence” standard that the case has set moving forward.
“This is a new day,” Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said following Weinstein’s verdict. “Rape is rape whether the survivor reports within an hour, within a year or perhaps never. It’s rape despite the complicated dynamics of power and consent after an assault. It’s rape even if there is no physical evidence.”
“There’s always the fear of coming forward, you know, going through a trial, getting beat up and humiliated and then not getting that verdict. Now that they see it can be done, I think more people will come forward and definitely empower the movement,” said criminal defense attorney Richard Kaplan.
“Now there is a roadmap on how you can win this kind of case,” he added.
“I hope that prosecutors, all over this country, and all over the world, look at this case and realize that rape trials can be won,” said attorney Carrie Goldberg, who represented one of Weinstein’s accusers in court, “and that these aren’t just ‘he said, she said’ stories, but they’re actually crimes that are winnable and need to be brought.”
“This case challenges our notions of what is force in a sexual relationship, what is lack of consent in a sexual relationship,” said New York defense attorney Paul DerOhannesian, who specializes in sexual assault cases.
The Weinstein verdict, which is being hailed as a tremendous victory for justice by conservatives and liberals alike, may have ripped the lid off of Pandora’s box. This could be the opportunity that the #MeToo witch hunt uses to finish off due process and the presumption of innocence once and for all.
