U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra has refused to invalidate a secret agreement that allowed deceased sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein to avoid federal charges, issuing a ruling which indicated that his death effectively rendered the case moot.
Epstein’s alleged victims filed a lawsuit with hopes to expose the federal government’s inappropriate behavior in how they handled the Epstein prosecution. Marra’s ruling has effectively thrown out that case, and the federal judge elaborated on his decision a 15-page order released on Monday.
“As a result of Mr. Epstein’s death, there can be no criminal prosecution against him and the Court cannot consider granting this relief to the victims,” Marra wrote.
Marra also failed to remove immunity for four women and other unnamed individuals who were allegedly Epstein’s accomplices in helping him groom teenage women for his illicit sex operation with his ruling.
“Since the alleged co-conspirators are not parties to this case, any ruling this Court makes that purports to affect their rights under the NPA would merely be advisory,” he wrote.
Although Marra admitted that the rights of the accusers were violated under the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act, his refused to remedy the injustice that was done to them with his ruling. He even admitted that accusers “are not receiving much, if any, of the relief they sought” in his order.
Former federal judge and University of Utah law professor Paul Cassell and Fort Lauderdale lawyer Bradley Edwards, who represented the victims in the lawsuit, are considering an appeal of Marra’s decision.
“We’re disappointed that no action will be taken to remedy the violation of the victims’ rights act,” Cassell said in a statement about the ruling.
Jack Scarola, another attorney who is representing Epstein’s accusers, voiced his displeasure with the ruling as well.
“Nevertheless, we do take solace in recognizing the role that a decade of legal work has played in focusing public attention on the failures of the criminal justice system in dealing with with Epstein’s horrendous crimes,” he said in a statement.
“The next chapter is making sure that every one of his co-conspirators is held fully accountable for their participation in those (horrendous) crimes and every government official is held to answer for allowing them and Epstein to escape a full measure of justice,” Scarola added.
The deal that Epstein received in 2008, under the jurisdiction of President Donald Trump’s former Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, allowed the late child sex fiend to serve only 13 months in jail with work release after he pleaded guilty to state prostitution charges.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has ordered a new investigation into the Palm Beach County Sheriff’ Office’s handling of Epstein while he was on work release after learning that he was involved in sexual activity while serving his sentence.
While the fall-out resulting from Epstein’s life of predatory behavior is far from over, this ruling shows how his untimely and bizarre death by hanging in a New York City jail cell is impeding his many victims from receiving the justice and closure that they deserve.
Federal Judge Halts Release of Documents Exposing Sex Life of Jeffrey Epstein Accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell
Maxwell is once again being protected by the courts.
A federal judge has stopped court documents related to dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell from being released to the public after Maxwell argued that it revealed intimate details about her sex life.
Maxwell argued that the details were “highly intrusive” and would deprive her of having a fair trial, and a judge has granted the request. However, some of the details that are already known about Maxwell’s sex life and alleged participation in Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation are already quite scandalous.
Epstein victim Virginia Roberts claims that Maxwell undressed her and coerced her into licking Epstein’s nipples when she was only 15. Maxwell then allegedly undressed and coerced Roberts into performing oral sex on Epstein. Roberts also claims that Maxwell was involved in “continuous” orgies on pedo island.
“There’s so many, I don’t know where you want me to start,” Roberts said about the girls that Maxwell had relations with.
“There were blondes, there were brunettes, there were redheads. They were all beautiful girls. I would say the ages ranged between 15 and 21,” she added.
Other unsealed documents show that Epstein coached Maxwell following Roberts’ lawsuit against her in 2015, telling her that she had “done nothing wrong” and to “start acting like it.” Roberts alleges that they constantly reminded her of their powerful associates in order to scare her into silence and compliance.
“Jeffrey did a lot more of that than she did. But she definitely made it aware that we shouldn’t cross boundaries with them,” she said.
Big League Politics has reported on how Maxwell fears that she will suffer the same fate as Epstein, who died mysteriously in a New York City jail cell last year:
Jeffrey Epstein’s former ‘madame’ Ghislane Maxwell believes the pedophile billionaire, who was her ex-lover, was murdered in a Manhattan jail, and fears the same fate in pretrial detention at a jail in Brooklyn.
“Everyone’s view including Ghislaine’s, is Epstein was murdered. She received death threats before she was arrested,” reported the Sun on Sunday, quoting an unnamed purported Maxwell contact. Maxwell had reportedly contracted the services of veterans of the British Armed Forces, fearing potentially assassination attempts following the death of Epstein and a deluge of death threats communicated to her.
The Maxwell contact, who remained in contact with her throughout her time in hiding in New Hampshire, states that she believes Maxwell fears dying suspiciously in a manner similar to Epstein while in the Brooklyn jail.
Maxwell was arrested at a secretive New Hampshire getaway last month by FBI agents, in regards to an investigation probing her involvement in the deceased pedophile billionaire’s underage sex trafficking network. The Department of Justice is accusing Maxwell of procuring, transporting and in turn personally abusing underage girls for Epstein and an elite network of the New York financier’s political and financial contacts to abuse.
Maxwell broke down in tears last week when a federal judge denied her bail, citing the heiress’ collection of properties around the world and her “extraordinary capacity to evade detection.”
In Trump’s America, pedophiles and their enablers no longer have free reign to commit detestable acts.
