Florida- Five young women have filed civil lawsuits, alleging part-time Palm Beacher Jeffrey Epstein sexually assaulted them — when they were minors — at his El Bravo Way home.
Four filed federal lawsuits and one is filed in state court.
All the lawsuits contain similar allegations: that Epstein recruited underage girls through a Palm Beach Community College student to come to his Palm Beach home and give him massages. Epstein, 55, “would then perform one or more lewd, lascivious and sexual acts” and pay the girls $200 to $300, the lawsuits state.
Epstein’s attorneys have denied the allegations.
* Also pending in state court is a felony charge of solicitation of prostitution arising from the same alleged incidents with several girls. That case is set for trial July 8, unless the state and Epstein come to terms on a plea agreement before then.
