Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A federal judge on Thursday denied bail to wealthy investor Jeffrey Epstein, citing the potential danger to "new victims" from his apparently "uncontrollable" sexual fixation on young girls, and the risk that Epstein would flee to avoid prosecution for child sex trafficking charges.

Every part of this story is eye-popping. It was hard to finish. But yeah, he's not even getting a new rope. And that was just one victim.

There are some criminals that deserve the death penalty, but in this case that would be too merciful

He can be pardoned by his pedo buddy Trump if these are federal charges.

yeah...and he offered up MILLIONS to get released on bail. after that..believe me..his self composure is shot. NO BAIL, that pretty much sums up the courts attitude, they have a conviction in their pocket.
DA wouldn't want to be in the position of explaining why he called for no bail and then the evidence not realize a sentence

From what I've been hearing and reading, what we know so far of Mr Epstein's escapades is only the small tip of what may well turn out to be a rather large, possibly global, ice berg.

I will be curious how far AG Barr allows the investigation to go in certain areas.

This case gets curiouser and curiouser. Wonder if he'll be telling his attorney to hint that he'll plead guilty in exchange for a bail reduction that would allow him some time out to "get his affairs in order." He's got to be feeling desperate by now.

And remember this..from a felon's perspective.
1. you've been denied bond so you're in jail until the trial is over
2.a speedy trial as per the constitution.. typically if you're out on bail you have your lawyer slow walk it
3. but if you're poor and can't make bail...well you want to get to the trial. if you're innocent you walk..guilty get to start your time in a
real facility and not the lock-up where epstein is now.
4. Sooo, will epstein try for a new bail hearing..if he doesn't then i can tell you right now...he know's they have him cold and he and his
lawyers are already trying to figure out how to maximize what's left of jeffrey's influence i.e; who's he gonna' testify against

No chance of that happening, but I guarantee you that his attorneys are working on some kind of deal where he provides testimony in exchange for a lighter sentence and/or serving his time in a Club Fed, where his chances of survival are much greater than in a Mid or Max security prison.

There are a lot of terrified rich and powerful pedos out there right now.

there'll be no federal camp like cohen is in regardless of who he testifies against

his "deal" will be copping to certain charges to have others dropped..if he'll be eligible for good time and for time served, this will be pretty much irrelevant given the charges and his age...and if the sentences will run concurrent

he'll go to a level 2 like sandstone

Interesting.... wondering what he was thinking when he was 18 about how his life would turn out....

he'll go to a level 2 like sandstone

Better deal would be to go to the SuperMax where he and Chapo could split the cost of a tunnel...

Doesn't anyone want to point out that this guy was a major Democrat donor? What does he have left to bargain with? Maybe a lot. Anything to keep out of a Federal prison where his life expectancy is measured in hours. Note, in the search of his home, the LEOs found a fake Passport, that in itself is a felony.

Epstein, like Trump, is whatever he thinks gives him an advantage in the moment.

Trump has been a major Democratic donor. He may be again if his ass gets in a sling.

I remember a Democrat, a southern general who became a Republican after the civil war. Longstreet. Ever see a statue to him in the South? There is one. Compare that to Lee, who was a merciless tyrant as a slave master, a so-so general, never stood up against the KKK after the war, and an unabashed racist.
