Epstein: in order to appear for a detention hearing where the judge will be considering bail; to Bryan Llenas reports from New York.

The New York Police Department and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. out of the office, both denying responsibility for the maintenance of Jeffrey Epstein’s court-mandated “check-ins”, such as a registered Level 3 sex offender.

The investor is required to register as a sex offender in New York, nearly three years after a controversial nonprosecution plea deal in Miami in 2008, which resulted in a period of 18 months in prison for the solicitation of prostitution with an under-age victim. (He served just 13 months of that sentence.)

Under the 1996 Sex Offender Registration Act, the Epstein have been published on the NYPD’s sex offender Monitoring Unit in the Manhattan criminal court, the court every 90 days to verify his address and his picture is periodically extended to the online database.

Epstein left that appointment of at least 34 times, according to reports in the New York Post, and has never been arrested for failing to comply in spite of the fact that it is a criminal offence that is punishable by up to four years in prison for a first offense — up to seven years for the subsequent offenses.

The chief of detectives of the NYPD, Dermot Shea, told Fox News on Thursday that “until there is a statutory obligation first to check-in, and he [Epstein] changed his place of residence to the Virgin Islands, where monitoring is taking place in this country, and not in New York city.”

However, when it came to an explosive hearing in 2011, when, as a sex crimes prosecutor from Vance’s office, pleaded with federal Justice Ruth Pickholz, to be able to downgrade Epstein, a Level 3 offender, the lowest classification, Level 1. The court found the Epstein of a change of address is not enough to exempt him from the control of New York city, and the enforcement of the law, as is required for Level 3 offenders.

The court ruled that Epstein, who is the owner of the homes, both in Palm Beach, Fla., and in Manhattan, “may have to come in every 90 days of the indian, or “to give up his New York city home as he doesn’t want to be out in 90 days,” according to the court transcripts.

Epstein is not, in any given period of time after the hearing, Det. Sophia Mason, a spokeswoman for the police department, told The Washington Post.

The NYPD did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

“The NYPD is the agency responsible for surveillance AT the complex, has repeatedly told us that Mr. Epstein was to be in full compliance with the law,” Danny Frost, a spokesperson from Vance’s office, told Fox News on Thursday. “Our office vigorously prosecutes all error, and to check on them.”

Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty Monday to an additional trafficking and conspiracy charges brought against him this week after he was arrested at the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Saturday.

The investor allegedly generated and maintained by a “web” and the 2002 “up to”, at least in 2005, which enabled him to have “sexual exploitation and abuse of dozens and dozens” of girls, in addition to paying the victims, and to recruit other female children.

“Jeffrey Epstein has been in prison for the sake of all the hard work of the NYPD detectives and our police partners, who are building a strong case and arrested him for his heinous crimes,” Shea told Fox News. “The NYPD will follow the same protocol for each and every sex offender referred to us, in accordance with national laws and regulations. The NYPD detectives are unforgiving: if you are a sex offender, we will find you.”
