In a new lawsuit, a woman has accused convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein of raping her and threatening her with being thro0wn in the water that was infested with alligators. Epstein told her that other girls had suffered the same fate. Maxwell was with them at the time.
Although the woman was 26 at the time, she was told to say she was only seventeen. After that, the pair offered her to other men for sex.
The woman accused Epstein and Maxwell raped her at his Palm Beach home in 2008. She was warned about going to the police.
Maxwell allegedly called the police herself and when they showed up, they threatened to arrest the woman for prostitution and threatened to have her child taken away from her.
Epstein intimidated the woman by talking about his connections in the FBI and with ICE, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit said:
“Epstein then ushered the Plaintiff to the body of water and told her in explicit detail that, as had happened to other girls in the past, she would end up in this body of water and be devoured by the alligators, should she ever reveal what Epstein had done to her.”
Over the next five months they gave the woman to various men and they had their way with her. She was frightened that she and her son would be deported if she raised a stink. They finally dropped her entirely and they heard nothing else until this suit was filed.
Darren K. Indyke and Richard D. Kahn, two men in charge of managing Epstein’s estate, are named as defendants in the lawsuit. Both men have been indicted by U.S. Virgin Islands Justice Department prosecutors who allege that Indyke and Kahn participated in Epstein’s trafficking crimes.
Indyke and Kahn have previously denied any part in Epstein’s crimes, Business Insider reported.
Maxwell was arrested by the FBI at 8:30 a.m. on July 2 in Bradford, New Hampshire. A grand jury for the U.S. District Court of Southern New York indicted Maxwell on charges of conspiracy to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors to these illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury.
