Former Associates of Epstein Push Hard to Distance Themselves

Leslie Wexner, Billionaire, CEO and Founder of L Brands, (Victoria’s Secret) spoke out Wednesday that his former money manager Jeffery Epstein misappropriated over $46 million dollars of his personal capital. The misappropriated monies were discovered over a decade ago. According to tax records, over $46 million in investments was moved from Wexner Family account to a Wexner charity. 

Time did a YouTube video covering the topic and can be seen in the clip posted below.


This remark comes a month after the Southern District of New York indicted Epstein with one count of sex trafficking conspiracy and one count of sex trafficking. The indictment states that from at least 2002 to 2005, Epstein “enticed and recruited” underage girls as young as 14 to his Manhattan mansion and his estate in Palm Beach, Florida, to engage in sex acts with him, after which he would pay the victims hundreds of dollars. To “maintain and increase his supply of victims,” Epstein paid some of the girls to recruit other victims. Wexner seems to be pushing that he is a victim of Mr. Epstein’s as well.

Jeffery Epstein and Wexner had a long relationship personally and professionally which was ended in 2007. When Epstein was spotlighted for sexual misconduct with minors that lead to a plea deal in Florida where Epstein registered as a sex offender and had to serve thirteen months with work release.

In February of this year, a Federal Judge ruled that Alexander Acosta and his team broke the law by illegally hiding the deal from Epstein’s victims. Under Federal law the victims were to be notified of a plea bargain and confer with prosecutors, this did not happen in 2008 most became aware after the plea deal was done. The prosecutors actually worked with Epstein’s lawyers to conceal this information. Which leaves the door open for having the whole plea bargain voided. This week Florida Governor announced a criminal investigation into the Plea Deal from 2008.
