Jailed Billionaire Sued By Underage Girls
A lawyer for two teenage girls says they are suing a jailed Florida billionaire for more than $100 million for allegedly soliciting erotic massages.
Investment banker Jeffrey Epstein, 55, is serving 18 months in the Palm Beach County Jail to be followed by a year of house arrest, likely at his mansion in Palm Beach, for soliciting massages from minors, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Thursday.
The younger girl allegedly massaged Epstein once while the older girl massaged him several times a month for up to two years, said Herman, alleging the emotional damage to the girls exceeds $50 million each.
