(New York State Sex Offender Registry via AP, File) (AP) Denied justice in the courts and later by his jail-cell death, victims of Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual predations are finally able to get a shot at compensation.
The Epstein Victims Compensation Fund, based in New York and authorized by the Probate Court of the U.S. Virgin Islands, officially begins accepting claims Thursday, June 25, from young women who allege the disgraced financier sexually abused them.
The fund was proposed by the Epstein estate in November but only recently authorized after months of wrangling with lawyers representing roughly 70 victims and the attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Epstein lived, owned two islands and where his estate is being settled.
The Jeffrey Epstein victims’ compensation fund is open for business
