Jeffrey Edward Epstein was born on January 20, 1953 in the New york, United States and he died on August 10, 2019. He was an American financier and convicted sex offender and sex trafficking . jeffrey Epstein began his career in finance at the investment bank Bear Stearns in New york, before forming his own firm, Jeffrey Epstein & Co. until his conviction for sex crimes in 2008, for running an underage prostitution ring for well connected financial, political, and cultural elites.
Jeffrey Epstein died this weekend while awaiting trial in court for his crimes, in what jail officials said was a suicide.
The financial manager was accused of sexually abusing lots of underage girls, taking them to his home for massages during which he masturbated or had sexual intercourse with them. He was indicted in 2007, but as Julie K. Brown reported at the Miami Herald, he ultimately got just a year and a month in a county jail, credit to a deal signed by US attorney Alexander Acosta, who would later become Secretary of Labor under President Trump.
In July, however, Epstein was arrested in New Jersey and was charged with sex trafficking, in connection with allegations that he organizes young underage girls for abuse at his residence in New York and Palm Beach. If convicted, he could have faced more than 40 years in jail.
Epstein said that any encounters he had with his accusers were consensual, and that he believed they were 18 at that time. He pleaded not guilty to the trafficking charges. But in July, a woman named Jennifer Araoz said in an interview with Today that Epstein had forcibly raped her in 2002, when she was about 15 years of age
Meanwhile, disturbing details about Epstein’s past have continued to come out, including reports by people who knew the financial manager that he wanted to “seed the human race with his DNA by impregnating women at his vast New Mexico ranch,” according to the New York Times .
