Since Jeffrey Epstein's arrest over the weekend on sex trafficking charges, at least a dozen new alleged victims have come forward to accuse him of sexual abuse. At least five women have contacted Florida attorneys Brad Edwards and Jack Scarola, and they "are underage victims in Florida and in New York," Scarola said. "They are not individuals whose claims have previously been part of any law enforcement investigation." New York prosecutors say Epstein, who is currently in a New York City prison, sexually abused dozens of girls inside his Manhattan mansion from 2002 to 2005. In court on Thursday, his lawyers argued he should be released to await trial in this house; prosecutors say he's a flight risk.
