Jeffrey Epstein’s Records Will Be Released

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals has overruled Florida Judge Donald W Hafele of Palm Beach County Circuit Court, who didn’t realize he had the authority to release the Jeffrey Epstein grand jury testimony in December 2021. 

Accounts of the 20-year-old case accused Epstein (66) of multiple sex crimes dealing with minor children, yet he was only charged with one count of prostitution. 

Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide on August 10, 2019, in the Metropolitan Correctional Center, New York, NY, while awaiting trial. Since no trial proceeding was ever held, no additional information can be introduced into the proceedings. 

The appeals court ordered Judge Hafele to review all the documents and release any portion of the transcripts that he felt would further justice. 

Epstein’s defense team worked tirelessly looking into the lives of the young female victims in the case. Interviews about intimate relationships with boyfriends, MySpace and Facebook postings and messaging, and the subpoena of Planned Parenthood records were done to build a defense of Epstein. The grand jury testimony is expected to reveal the depth of their investigations. 

The fear of many well know elites is that their names might be made public as guests who often flew to Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean. 

Two of Palm Beach County’s state legislators filed bills to permit the release to the public of the sealed grand jury evidence. 

Section 905.27 of Florida Statutes was used to justify unsealing the grand jury proceedings in the Epstein case. For the statute to be legally used, a judge must order the release and disclosure of the grand jury records, proceedings, and testimony.

The female victims, in this case, were 14 and 15 years old at the time of the incident. Now in their 20s, they would like the information about their ordeal to ensure girls don’t have their experiences to relive.

Due to the amount of information to be examined, the time limit for releasing the grand jury information is unknown.
