John Yoo says that he will not be surprised at all that Jeffrey Epstein has been denied bail because of how serious are the charges of sex-trafficking conspiracy.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw launched an investigation Friday into whether wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein, was well attended during the work release program while serving time for soliciting prostitution from underage girls over a decade ago.

The investigation will focus on whether deputies are assigned to the Epstein violated any of the rules or regulations, of Bradshaw, said in a statement, adding that “all the circumstances of the case will be fully investigated in order to ensure total accountability and transparency.”

Epstein, 66, was allowed to spend five or six days a week, at the offices of the now-defunct Florida Science Foundation, in the place of the prison in a heavily criticized the 2008 plea deal with federal prosecutors in which he pleaded guilty, to comply with the request of a child, and it is registered as a sex offender.

“I know the young women that come and go back into the office area,” the now-retired deputy Jeffrey Rice, said on Thursday. He told me that the girls were maybe in the early 20’s.

“It’s just a kind of said they were the office workers,” he said.

In the plea deal that allowed Epstein to be taken out of the prison, from 8 am to 8 pm, however, the data show that, in some cases, his personal limousine, and let him be as early as 7:15 a.m. or picked up as late as 10:40 pm

Rice said at that time he was accompanied Epstein’s house, he was waiting outside the house, but I was not aware of what Epstein was doing, or if anyone else was inside. He was employed as a sergeant for clarification on what he was supposed to do.

“I didn’t do an interior sweep of the place of residence,” he said. “I have followed the instructions to the letter.”

Sex offenders are now prohibited from taking part in the county’s work-release program, but, apparently, not in 2008, according to a copy of the rules at the time.

Federal prosecutors allege Epstein paid underage girls for massages and then be molested in homes in Plam Beach and New York city between 2002 and 2005. He has pleaded not guilty to federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.
