Convicted sex offender, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested over the weekend in connection with federal sex trafficking allegations, law enforcement officials said. The arrest stems from incidents spanning from 2002 to 2005, three law enforcement officials said.
Epstein, 66, of Palm Beach, Florida, had flown from Paris to New York when he was arrested in Teterboro, New Jersey, the officials said. The arrest was part of a joint NYPD and FBI investigation.
A senior law enforcement said that Epstein allegedly paid minors cash for massages and then sex acts. He would then allegedly pay those alleged victims even more money to bring him their friends/others who he would also allegedly pay for acts.
The official says that some victims are as young as 14 years old. These acts allegedly occurred at his Upper East Side and Palm Beach, Florida homes.
