The lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy jet-setting businessman who is accused of child sex trafficking, filed a letter with the court on Thursday arguing that Epstein should be allowed to stay in his massive Manhattan mansion while awaiting trial instead of spending it behind bars as prosecutors have requested. And Epstein’s attorneys suggested using the $77 million home as collateral for his bond.
Some of the criminal accusations leveled against Epstein are alleged to have occurred inside that New York City residence and, when it was raided by investigators over the weekend, possible child pornography was found in the home.
The article goes on to state the following:
Epstein has been in jail since he was arrested by authorities at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on his way home from Paris this weekend. His indictment, unsealed on Monday, alleges that he “sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his homes in Manhattan, New York, and Palm Beach, Florida, among other locations” between 2002 and 2005, according to a 14-page federal indictment. Epstein pleaded not guilty on Monday.
“Epstein’s lawyers said that their client would also install surveillance cameras inside and outside the mansion, wear electronic monitoring with a global positioning system, and “have no one” enter the residence, other than Mr. Epstein and his attorneys,” according to the Daily Mail. “Mr. Epstein stands ready and willing to pay for 24-hour armed guards should the Court deem it necessary or appropriate.”
