Epstein’s death has far-reaching legal consequences - Hot Air

The 2007 plea deal Epstein made with prosecutors in Florida was written in such a way that precluded authorities from charging four women identified as possible co-conspirators. But the Southern District of New York, which indicted Epstein on sex-trafficking in July, has previously said it is not bound by Florida’s plea-deal terms, including the agreement not to prosecute possible co-conspirators.

While taking them to court might be an uphill battle, experts ultimately predict the government would be successful.


Here's hoping.
