Pedophile millionaire dodged harsh sentence by ratting out Bear Stearns execs

Multimillionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein secretly served as a “key federal witness” against two hedge fund managers around the time he cut the sweetheart deal that let him avoid federal child sex-trafficking charges and serve just 13 months in a Florida jail, according to a new report Wednesday.

A year-long investigation by the Miami Herald turned up records that show Epstein — who was one of the fund’s largest investors — cooperated in the prosecution of a pair of executives at now-defunct Bear Stearns financial firm and received “valuable consideration” for providing investigators with unspecified information.

Emails also show then-Miami US Attorney Alexander Acosta — who is now President Trump’s secretary of labor — and the lead prosecutor in the case agreeing to help Epstein’s high-powered defense lawyers try to contain the scandal sparked by his 2006 arrest in Palm Beach, according to the Herald.

“On an ‘avoid the press’ note…I can file the charge in district court in Miami which will hopefully cut the press coverage significantly. Do you want to check that out?” Assistant US Attorney Marie Villafana wrote in September 2007 to defense lawyer (((Jay Lefkowitz))), a former colleague of Acosta’s at the Kirkland & Ellis law firm.

The following month, Acosta met with Lefkowitz for breakfast at a Marriott hotel in West Palm Beach — 70 miles from Acosta’s office — to negotiate terms of Epstein’s non-prosecution agreement with the feds, according to the Herald.

Once the pact was struck, Epstein — who’s hosted former President Bill Clinton, British Prince Andrew and others at his own private Caribbean Island (Rape Island) — pleaded guilty to two felony prostitution charges in state court, even though the feds identified 36 underage girls who accused Epstein, then a powerful pal of Clinton and Prince Andrew, of sexually abusing them in his Palm Beach mansion between 2001 and 2005, the Herald said.

A Labor Department spokeswoman didn’t immediately return a request for comment, but Acosta was questioned about the Epstein plea deal during his US Senate confirmation hearing in March 2017.

Although he said he couldn’t “discuss the details of the case,” Acosta said the decision not to file federal charges “was a broadly held decision” in his office.

“As part of any plea, it is not unusual to have an indictment that says these are all the places we can go, yet at the end of the day, based on the evidence, professionals within a prosecutor’s office decide that a plea that guarantees that someone goes to jail, that guarantees that someone register [as a sex offender] generally, and that guarantees other outcomes is a good thing,” he said.

DA knew Jeffrey Epstein was a dangerous pedophile when arguing for leniency
By Susan Edelman and Rebecca Rosenberg

The Manhattan DA’s office had graphic and detailed evidence of pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s depravity when a prosecutor inexplicably argued for leniency during his 2011 sex offender registry hearing, The Post has learned.

In advance of the hearing, then-deputy chief of Sex Crimes, Jennifer Gaffney, had been given a confidential state assessment that deemed Epstein to be highly dangerous and likely to keep preying on young girls, the DA’s office admitted in its own appellate brief eight months after the hearing.

The brief has been sealed since 2011, but The Post obtained it Thursday after suing to get it unsealed.

It describes a state assessment’s findings that Epstein should be monitored in New York as a level three offender — reserved for the most dangerous.

In making its assessment, the NY state Board of Examiners of Sex Offenders evaluated the sworn, corroborated accounts of numerous young girls who had been lured into Epstein’s Palm Beach, Fla., compound in 2005 and 2006.

Girls aged 14 to 17 years old were recruited and paid $200 to $1,000 to give Epstein erotic massages that included sexual contact, intercourse and rape, Palm Beach cops found.

Epstein pleaded guilty in Palm Beach to abusing just one of these young victims, and was required to register as a sex offender in New York since he had an Upper East Side home.

Manhattan prosecutors were aware the state board had assigned Epstein a risk assessment of 130, a number that is “solidly above the 110 qualifying number for level three,” with “absolutely no basis for downward departure,” the brief notes.

Nevertheless, Gaffney argued that he should be labeled a level one offender, the least restrictive, which would keep him off the online database.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Ruth Pickholz sided with the board and against Gaffney in designating Epstein a level three offender. Epstein appealed, and the DA’s change-of-heart brief agreeing that Epstein deserved the highest level of monitoring was filed in opposition to that appeal.

The appellate division ultimately upheld that Epstein be monitored as a level three offender, and he remains on the registry.

“Our prosecutor made a mistake,” Danny Frost, spokesman for DA Cyrus Vance Jr., told The Post in December, when news broke that Epstein’s sweetheart Palm Beach deal had buried evidence he had allegedly abused some 80 girls and young women.

Reached late Thursday, Frost declined to say who above Gaffney might have approved her decision to go easy on Epstein. Vance’s office has insisted that he was unaware of the sex-offender registry hearing at the time.

Gaffney could not immediately be reached for comment.
