The arrest of billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein in New York on child sex trafficking charges is the latest step in a long, emotionally-brutal battle for one of his alleged victims who moved to Australia as a 19-year-old when she believes she became 'too old' for him.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre has been one of Epstein's most vocal accusers, alleging he recruited and groomed her as a 16-year-old in Florida to have sex with him and other rich and powerful men.
Ms Giuffre, now 35, broke away from Epstein when she married an Australian man in 2003, settled in Queensland and had three children.
Epstein, 66, appeared in a New York court on Monday dressed in a blue jail jumpsuit and entered not guilty pleas to counts of sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors.
Jeffery Epstein, a former associate of Trump has finally been arrested on Charges of sex trafficking minors.
Epstein, who is already a convicted sex offender, was arrested Saturday in New York on sex-trafficking charges. He is known for his ties to President Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton.
Epstein previously pleaded guilty to a charge of soliciting prostitution from a minor after agreeing to a plea deal, which stopped a federal investigation. He allegedly paid dozens of underage girls to perform sexual acts and was facing life in prison. He served just 13 months in jail and was allowed to go to his office to work six days a week during his sentence.
Epstein, 66, is being charged with sex trafficking minors between 2002 and 2005. He's set to appear in federal court on Monday.
Lawyer David Boies, who represents some of the accusers, told The Daily Beast that he is pleased with the news of his arrest.
“It is an important step toward getting justice for the many victims of Mr. Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise,’’ Boies said. “We hope that prosecutors will not stop with Mr. Epstein because there were many other people who participated with him and made the sex trafficking possible.’’
