WEST PALM BEACH, Fla | Wealthy sex offender settles suit, averting victim testimony
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A last-minute settlement has been reached in Florida in a long-running lawsuit involving a politically-connected financier accused of sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls.
The deal came Tuesday just before jury selection was to begin. It means none of the women will be able to testify against Jeffrey Epstein for now.
A lawyer for Epstein read an apology from him to attorney Bradley Edwards, who represents some of Epstein’s accusers.
