In New York, serial child sex abuser Jeffrey Epstein asked a federal judge Thursday to release him on bail while he awaits trial on sex trafficking charges. Epstein, who has been held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan since his arrest Saturday, offered to put up his $77 million New York City mansion and private jet as collateral. He also offered to pay for security guards in his home and to pay for electronic monitoring. If the deal is approved, Epstein would await his trial in the same Manhattan townhouse where he allegedly raped teenage girls from at least 2002 to 2005. Epstein’s bid for bail came as at least a dozen new women came forward to say they were sexually abused by Epstein in the past.
