PROSECUTORS BROKE LAW IN AGREEMENT NOT TO PROSECUTE JEFFREY EPSTEIN, JUDGE RULES

Prosecutors led by Alexander R. Acosta, who is now the secretary of labor, violated federal law when they failed to tell victims about an agreement not to prosecute Epstein.

The agreement not to pursue federal sex trafficking charges, negotiated in secret, violated the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act.

The court’s ruling on Thursday could nullify the non-prosecution agreement and subject Mr. Epstein and any co-conspirators in the case to new federal charges.
