Prison staff members subpoenaed in Epstein probe

Prison staff members subpoenaed in Epstein probe

Jeffrey Epstein had many friends and associates in the tech sector who are now having to answer for their connections to him.

The lawyers who handled the will have not returned calls for comment.

Since Epstein's death, there has been mounting evidence that employees at the jail abdicated their responsibility to keep the 66-year-old from killing himself while he awaited trial on charges of sexually abusing teenage girls.

The probe into the circumstances surrounding his death has intensified, with as many as 20 corrections workers getting slapped with grand jury subpoenas, according to a report.

The subpoenas suggest authorities may be pursuing criminal charges against employees at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in NY, where Epstein took his own life on August 10.

More subpoenas could be in the works, a source told the news outlet.

Epstein, 66, was arrested in July and accused of leading a sex trafficking operation in his homes in NY and Florida from 2002 to 2005, as part of which he abused dozens of minors, some of whom were just 14 years old.

Epstein's former pilot David Rodgers has said the Duke of York was on at least three flights with the tycoon and his "sex slave" Virginia Roberts in 2001.

The Sun reported that it is the first time anyone has alleged Andrew and Ms Roberts were on Epstein's plane at the same time. One of the victims said she traveled to Epstein's private Caribbean island, where he took her passport away.

Yesterday, pictures emerged of Prince Andrew in Boston on April 11 - the day he is said to have flown to St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands with Epstein and Ms Roberts.

The lawsuit also alleges Epstein forced Kaitlyn to marry another woman so that that woman could remain in the United States even though she was not a US citizen.

From there, the women would have to follow the same course as they would if Epstein had not created a trust: Convince the judge that they're entitled to compensation as victims of sex crimes.

Captivated by Epstein's claims to close connections with New York City's major dance companies, the woman said her third visit was to his United States dollars 77 million Manhattan mansion and convinced her to provide a massage while naked to Epstein in return for USD 300 cash, the lawsuit said.

Andrew was forced to stand down as a United Kingdom trade envoy after facing a backlash over the image and his continued association with a convicted sex offender - who was jailed for having sex with a minor in 2008.

Rodgers said Guiffre was not on the flight, but Prince Andrew, Epstein, Maxwell, and a British voice-over artist were on that plane.

Andrew has been pictured playing golf in southern Spain as the Jeffrey Epstein storm shows no sign of dying down.
