(WatchDogReport.org) – In 2007, Florida officials and the FBI investigated Jeffrey Epstein, uncovering evidence of a sex trafficking ring. One year later, he signed what’s now known and the “sweetheart deal” that allowed him to plead the case down to state charges. Instead of facing a possible life sentence, he spent just 13 months in jail, but he was allowed to leave during the day.
More than a decade later, his alleged victims are still demanding answers.
On Thursday, November 12, federal law enforcement spoke to Epstein’s accusers and said the investigation into the 2008 deal found authorities violated no crimes when they made the agreement. The DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility said it believes US Attorney Alex Acosta exhibited “poor judgment.”

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) lambasted the findings. He said the DOJ “failed Epstein’s victims at every turn” and believes the full report should be made public. Maybe then his alleged victims will get some closure.
