Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has been indicted on new charges related to alleged sex crimes involving minors.
Epstein, who lives in Palm Beach, Florida, had flown from Paris to New York when he was arrested in Teterboro, New Jersey on Saturday. The arrest was part of a joint NYPD and FBI investigation. The charges, contained in a sealed indictment, involve alleged sex trafficking crimes committed between 2002 and 2005.
Epstein allegedly paid minors cash for massages and then sex acts. He would then allegedly pay those alleged victims even more money to bring him their friends/others who he would also allegedly pay for acts. Some victims are as young as 14 years old. These acts allegedly occurred at his Upper East Side and Palm Beach, Florida homes.
He's expected to appear in federal court in New York today. The arrest comes 12 years after he was essentially given a slap in the wrist for similar charges by Federal prosecutors.
