(CBS Local)– “Attorney Brad Edwards spent years battling Jeffrey Epstein. He’s represented more than 50 women who say they were sexually abused by the convicted sex offender. Now, in his new Simon & Schuster book, “Relentless Pursuit: My Fight for the Victims of Jeffrey Epstein,” Edwards details his encounters with Epstein, the role that Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly had in Epstein’s sex scandal, and why it took so long to bring Epstein to justice.”
“For 10 years, Courtney Wild waged almost a one-woman crusade against the federal government on behalf of victims of sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, who molested her and countless other underage girls around the country.
Some of that time, Wild pursued justice from a putrid Florida state prison cell, where she was serving a longer sentence for a drug crime than Epstein, who received a plea deal that allowed him to enjoy his 13-month jail term mostly from the comforts of his luxurious office in West Palm Beach.
But a decade later, Wild’s relentless quest has led to a bipartisan push in Congress for sweeping reforms that, among other things, gives judges the power to nullify plea deals that violate the Crime Victims’ Rights Act (CVRA).
The Courtney Wild Crime Victims’ Rights Reform Act of 2019 was introduced in the House of Representatives Thursday by U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif.; Rep. Scott Perry, R‑Penn.; Rep. Lois Frankel, D‑Fla.; and Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., and is co-sponsored by nine other representatives from both parties.”
“A South Florida woman who accused Jeffrey Epstein of sexually assaulting her when she was a girl is urging a federal appeals court to provide relief to multiple victims like herself who were not notified of a “sweetheart” prosecution deal with the wealthy financier.”
” . . . “The district court’s ruling turns [the Crime Victims’ Relief Act] into a hollow promise for victims and should be overturned,” attorney Paul Cassell wrote on behalf of Wild.
The new petition is challenging U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra’s decision that Wild and others are not eligible for any major relief, even though he found federal prosecutors violated the rights of Epstein’s victims by leaving them in the dark about his non-prosecution agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami.”
F-tard judiciary there in Florida. As f-tard as the NY jail system…
