Jeffrey Epstein was found semi-conscious on the floor of his jail cell July 25. It wasn’t known if he had attempted suicide or been assaulted by another prisoner, but he wasn’t having a good time in any event, and here’s why. CNBC:
A day before accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found mysteriously injured in his jail cell, the wealthy financier was served legal documents detailing a woman’s claims that he raped her in his New York City mansion when she was just 15 years old.
The accuser, Jennifer Araoz, plans to sue Epstein next month for claims of sexual assault, battery and rape, which she alleges he started committing when she was a New York high school student in 2001, according to a court filing earlier this month.
But first, Araoz is asking a judge to order Epstein to submit to a deposition, where he can be asked by Araoz’s lawyers the identity of a female “recruiter”who allegedly conspired with him to identify her “as a potential sexual abuse victim” and “facilitated the grooming” of Araoz.
“Upon identification of the recruiter, she will be added as a defendant to” Araoz’s planned suit against Epstein, the filing says. “Further, the recruiter possesses critical evidence of [Araoz’s] sexual assault claims.”
Araoz grew up poor in Queens and lost her father at the age of 12. She alleges that Epstein began abusing her at age 14 and raped her at age 15. She was one of many under age girls that Epstein plied with gifts and groomed. Epstein’s future looks rather grim. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving creep.
