Most of the heat has died out, but the case against the alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein isn’t quite dead yet and in this article you can find all the latest surrounding the case.
Sarah Ransome, who is one the alleged victims of Jeffrey Epstein has told how she tried to escape through shark-infested waters in a bid to get away from his notorious ‘pedophile island’.
According to her, she was raped three times the day she tried to make her dramatic escape.
Ransome is the granddaughter of Lord Gordon Macpherson, the second baron of Drumochter and she was introduced to Epstein back in 2006, when she was 16, after being approached by a woman in a nightclub in New York.
There is no information regarding the identity of that woman, but it could easily have been Mrs Ghislaine. Even though Epstein had several of the young girls recruiting for him, it is more likely Epstein needed a bigger profile to reach a girl like Ransome.
According to Ransome, she did not get far after trying to escape and was quickly brought back by a team in boats working for Epstein.
“There were some days I was raped three times a day. And then he would rape others.”Sarah Ransome

Immunity granted to any potential co-conspirators
A federal judge refused to scrap the controversial plea deal that granted immunity to Jeffrey Epstein and his co-conspirators, seven months after ruling that it had violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act.
U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra also said that Epstein’s victims were not owed any money following the government’s violation of the Crime Victims’ Rights Act.
Marra also suggested that the victims could “take solace” in the fact that their lawsuit against the government had brought national attention to the Crime Victims’ Rights Act, the “shortcomings” of the Justice Department in dealing with Epstein victims and the fact that their civil case played a role in spurring a federal prosecution of Epstein in July.
Four women were singled out for immunity in the 2007 plea deal—in addition to other potential unnamed accomplices—after victims identified them as recruiters who allegedly helped procure underage girls for the financier’s pleasure. The women were identified in the document as “including but not limited to Sarah Kellen, Adriana Ross, Lesley Groff, or Nadia Marcinkova.”
The judge also denied the victims’ request for FBI files related to the 2008 investigation into Epstein and his alleged co-conspirators, stating that, “it is also a matter of public knowledge that there is an ongoing investigation by the Department of Justice relative those individuals.
