Two of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers say his death means the 2007 plea deal he reached with prosecutors — which continues to protect four unnamed associates from prosecution — should be scrapped.
Bradley J. Edwards, an attorney for women identified as Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2, submitted a statement to the US District Court in southern Florida on Monday seeking to cancel the remaining provisions of the deal.
The statement said:
“The Court should grant the victims all of their proposed remedies — including invaliding the provisions in the non-prosecution agreement that precludes prosecution of Epstein’s co-conspirators.”
“In light of Epstein recent passing, all his objections to the victims’ proposed remedies have become moot. And most of the Government’s objections — which were likewise predicated on protecting Epstein’s interests — have also become moot.”
