Jeffrey Epstein Appears In NY Court, Tentative Trial Date Set For 2020

A tentative trial date is being set in the federal case against already convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Appearing in a Lower Manhattan courtroom yesterday, Epstein didn’t appear to have any signs of injury less than a week ago after being found with neck injuries inside his cell.

As of now, the trial will begin on June 8th, 2020 – with both sides meeting for oral arguments in October. To review, Epstein was convicted in 2008 of soliciting a prostitute and of “procuring” an underage girl for prostitution. He served 13 months in custody with work release, as part of a plea deal. Epstein faces new charges of sex trafficking involving the alleged abuse of underage girls, some as young as 14.

As if the story couldn’t get any creepier, there are new reports about his motivation for engaging in sex acts with young girls: According to the “New York Times,” it’s because he wanted to ‘spread his DNA.’ Word is, he was a fan of “transhumanism,”the science of genetic engineering that reportedly saw Epstein telling scientists he wanted to "seed the human race" with his DNA by impregnating 20 women at a time.
