Epstein defense focuses on double jeopardy, will it succeed? (Video)

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the developing case of multi-millionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who accepted a plea bargain on sex charges in Florida in 2008.

Epstein’s legal team appears to be betting on double jeopardy protections to avoid the new charges filed against him…will he succeed in this line of defense?

Speaking with host Alisyn Camerota, CNN legal analyst Laura Coates began, “In order to have double jeopardy, you have to a complete overlap of crimes alleged.”

“You have information perhaps about new crimes since the other case was actually brought forward,” she continued. “There may have been information about having brought young girls across state lines into New York, there’s information he may have been engaged in recent activity. If all of that is true, it’s not double jeopardy. You’re talking about New York versus Florida and New York is not beholden to what happens in Florida.”

Asked to chime in, former SDNY prosecutor Jennifer Rodgers added, “They would be able to charge because double jeopardy only applies if it’s federal, and federal you can’t charge another federal case. This was a state case, actually.”

“The federal deal was a non-prosecution agreement, it was never charged in the first place,” she elaborated. “We don’t know whether new victims are coming forward, but they did make a call for new victims at the press conference. It will be interesting to see if they get new conduct. Remember, that the non-prosecution agreement in Florida was about was Florida-based conduct. Nhat the new charges are is a conspiracy that encompasses both things that happened in New York and happened in Florida, so substantively, it’s different conduct as well. ”

The killer defence would be to say its antisemitic to progress the prosecution of this paedophile Jew. 🙂

Probably Epstein insisted that carpetbagger HClinton move to NY and run for the legislature as part of his Clinton Foundation deal, just so she could kill any NY indictments that came along. His timing stinks. Too bad, so sad.

Is that similar to the Khazar zionist in court prosecuted for the murder of his parents , pleading sympathy from the court stating that his is now an orphan .

It would make sense, Guy.
Being a Victim has served them well in recent decades.

Apparently Leon Black was associated with Epstein as well. By the way, could Wexner be prosecuted for his close association with Epstein? Surely Wexner must have known what was going on…
