Jeffrey Epstein victim loses her bid to challenge the dead pedophile’s sweetheart deal with Florida prosecutors
- Courtney Wild lost her bid to challenge Jeffrey Epstein’s non-prosecution deal
- The pedophile made a deal with federal prosecutors in Florida back in 2007, which allowed him to avoid federal sex trafficking charges
- Wild had filed suit claiming the deal violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act because the victims weren’t notified of the arrangement
- However, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld it on Tuesday, writing in its opinion: ‘It’s not a result we like, but it’s the result we think the law requires’
- The higher court’s decision overturns a ruling by a federal judge last year voiding the agreement
- Wild claims she was sexually abused as a teen by Epstein at his Florida mansion
Courtney Wild had filed suit to appeal the sweetheart deal, which allowed Epstein to avoid federal sex trafficking charges and plead guilty to lesser state charges, including soliciting a minor for prostitution.
Epstein spent just 13 months in jail – and was allowed to go to his office almost daily – paid financial settlements to victims and was a registered sex offender, but only in some states.
Wild, who has been vocal about being sexually abused as a teen by Epstein, claimed the deal violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act because the victims weren’t notified of the arrangement.’
