BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein Pleads Not Guilty to Sex Trafficking Underage Girls
Disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has pleaded not guilty to charges that he was trafficking underage girls for sex.
During the hearing, prosecutors revealed that more alleged victims have come forward since his arrest.
The 66-year-old owner of the “Lolita Express” airplane will remain in jail until a bail hearing on Thursday.
Epstein is accused of creating and maintaining a network of dozens of underage girls that he sexually exploited from 2002 to 2005. Prosecutors said that federal agents found “nude photographs of what appeared to be underage girls” in a safe in his Manhattan mansion.
Other bizarre findings from the federal search warrant included a fully equipped dental chair in one of his bathrooms, complete with drills and other tools.

The unsealed indictment against him accuses Epstein of sexually abusing dozens of young girls and paying them hundreds of dollars in cash for each encounter — and hundreds more if they could recruit other victims.
Prosecutors say that he is a registered sex offender and a flight risk so they are asking that he be held on remand until his trial. They noted that he has three active passports and has regularly traveled in and out of the country on his private jet.
