The day after he was taken off suicide watch, disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein spent no less than two hours locked up alone with a younger girl, in a non-public room reserved for inmates and their attorneys, in keeping with an lawyer who was visiting the jail that day.
“The optics were startling. Because she was young. And pretty,” mentioned the visiting lawyer, who requested that his title not be used as a result of he didn’t need to create friction with the jail administration. He speculated the girl may very well be a lawyer—NBC News has reported that Epstein paid members of his staff to take a seat with him in a room for eight hours a day for attorney-client conferences, permitting him to keep away from his cell.
The visiting lawyer went to the Manhattan Correctional Center on July 30, a day after Epstein was reportedly taken off suicide watch and transferred into the Special Housing Unit (SHU). During the hours the visiting lawyer was current, it wasn’t Epstein’s primary lawyer, Reid Weingarten, or different named attorneys who visited him.
