On Monday, hedge fund manager (millionaire? multi-millionaire? billionaire?) Jeffrey Epstein pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking charges. The 66-year old predator was arrested over the weekend (as the Feds raided his home, and found all sorts of bad stuff). Prosecutors allege Epstein paid teenage girls from disadvantaged backgrounds – some as young as 14 – to have sex with him at his Manhattan and Palm Beach homes between 2002 and 2005. They also say he paid victims to recruit other girls for him to abuse. Epstein is now behind bars, where he will remain until his bail hearing on the 15th. He pleaded not guilty to one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors. If convicted of both counts, Epstein faces up to 45 years in prison.
