At a bail hearing on Thursday at the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman denied bail for convicted sexual predator and wealthy hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, who has been charged with ex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy. Prosecutors allege that between 2002 and 2005, Epstein sexually abused “dozens” of girls as young as 14 at his opulent Manhattan townhouse and at his Palm Beach mansion. A search of his Manhattan home by federal authorities also yielded “hundreds, if not thousands” of images of young-looking women and girls on CD-ROMS in a safe in his home. Epstein will remain in prison until his trial begins.
