The following article, Epstein Offered to Personally Pay for His Security If Released On Bail, But He Just Got Some Bad News, was first published on Flag And Cross.
It has been rumored that registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein would put up $100 million in bail money.
He’s a billionaire.
To him, $100 million is probably like $10,000 to the rest of us.
However, it doesn’t look like Bill Clinton’s long-time pal will be out of the pokey anytime soon.
Here’s the scoop, via CNBC:
The long-shot effort by Jeffrey Epstein, an accused sex trafficker, to win release from jail on bail by promising to personally pay for security to monitor him got even tougher Thursday with a new federal appeals court decision, which blasted such cushy arrangements in most cases.
The ruling in the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals “expressly” bars a “two-tier bail system” in which “wealthy defendants are released to self-funded private jails” while “defendants of lesser means are detained pending trial.”
“Such a two‐tiered system would ‘foster inequity and unequal treatment in favor of a very small cohort of criminal defendants who are extremely wealthy,’ ” the ruling by a three-judge appeals panel said.
U.S. Labor Secretary Alex Acosta is stepping down from his post following days on end of backlash for being involved in a plea deal he helped create while he was a U.S. Attorney for deplorable registered sex offender and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
This is really disappointing, but probably the best course of action he could take at this point.
Now we just need to find someone who will honestly investigate the connection that Epstein has with the Clintons, since Bill seems to have been a regular flyer on his aircraft.
All individuals involved with this man need to be investigated and any wrongdoing discovered should be punished accordingly. The fact this man victimized children is horrific on every level, but what’s truly disturbing is all of the power players he had connections with during his lifetime.
Let’s hope justice is truly served here.
