Jeffrey Epstein accuser urges more victims to speak out

NEW YORK (AP) — One of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers is urging victims to speak out against the wealthy financier as authorities prosecute him on sex charges.

Courtney Wild told reporters Tuesday that Epstein “will never stop sexually abusing children until he is in jail.”

Wild’s remarks came a day after she urged a federal judge to deny Epstein bail.

Wild said Epstein started sexually abusing her when she was 14 in Palm Beach, Florida.

An email was sent to Epstein’s attorney seeking comment.

Epstein has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and sex trafficking charges brought by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan. Wild’s accusations are not part of that indictment.

Epstein’s attorneys have argued that the new charges should not have been filed because he signed a non-prosecution agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami year ago.
