The former hedge fund manager - who was arrested last week on child sex trafficking charges - doled out a total of at least $350,000 to two people previous year, federal prosecutors said in new court papers.

Neither of the recipients was named, but both recipients of the money were said to have co-conspired in the alleged sex crimes detailed in the Herald.

Epstein has pleaded not guilty.

If you've been on social media over the past few years, you'd heard about billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, his crimes, and his political connections to high-profile Democrats, including Bill Clinton.

His lawyers fetch no longer but commented on the payout claims.

The papers stated that the reported payments were enough evidence to keep Epstein in jail until his trial in case he tries to influence other witnesses.

"This course of action, and in particular its timing, suggests the defendant was attempting to further influence co-conspirators who might provide information against him in light of the recently re-emerging allegations", prosecutors wrote. They did no longer title the two participants that obtained the cash.

USA prosecutors in NY on Monday accused Mr Epstein, 66, of sex trafficking, luring dozens of girls, some as young as 14, to his luxury homes and coercing them into sex acts.

"In this way, Epstein created a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit in locations including NY and Palm Beach".

On Monday, federal prosecutors indicted Epstein on charges of running a sex-trafficking operation that lured dozens of underage girls to sex parties in his NY mansion and his estate in Florida between 2002 and 2005, Trendreports citingSputnik.

Alex Acosta RESIGNS Amid Jeffrey Epstein Case Pressure
The level of churn in his administration, whether through scandal, burn-out or presidential disfavour, is extraordinary. President Donald Trump announced on Friday that his embattled labor secretary, Alexander Acosta , has resigned .

They cited his payments to imaginable witnesses and the risk that he would soar as causes to retain him in jail, while describing him as "unrepentant and unreformed".

"As I look forward, I do not think it is right and fair for this administration's Labor Department to have Mr Epstein as a focus rather than the incredible economy we have today", Mr Acosta said.

"Mr. Acosta now joins the sprawling parade of President Trump's chosen advisors who have left the administration under clouds of scandal and corruption, leaving rudderless and discouraged agencies in their wake".

Acosta faced calls for his ouster over his role in securing a sweat deal for multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein over a decade ago when Epstein faced possible federal child sex trafficking charges.

Federal authorities are seeking to block Epstein's release as he awaits trial stemming from charges brought against him earlier this week.

US President Donald Trump informed newshounds that he and Mr Acosta spoke on the phone earlier on Friday and that it turned into as soon as Mr Acosta's resolution to step down.

On Thursday, an MSNBC contributor and former U.S. Attorney bizarrely claimed that Trump and Epstein are comparable figures.

But he added: "It'd be selfish for me to cease on this put and continue talking about a case that's 12 years earlier".

Balderas' office has not said, however, how many accusers his office has interviewed and he has not elaborated on what they say took place at the ranch.
