By now we've learned that Jeffrey Epstein's secret activities were not so secret. Four women who assisted Epstein in his sex trafficking have all been granted immunity in trade for a plea deal. The controversial agreement was made by then-prosecutor (and current Secretary of Labor) Alexander Acosta.
Between 2002 and 2005, Epstein conspired with girlfriends, assistants, and associates to help operate the network, according to the new federal indictment. The documents state that Epstein organized “a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit.”
In addition, “Epstein worked in concert with others to obtain minors not only for his own sexual gratification but also for the sexual gratification of others.”
Sarah Kellen, who currently operated SLK designs, previously worked as an assistant for Epstein and helped to organize a Roledex of young women/potential recruits. Kellen is now married to a race car driver and has received her immunity in this case.
Others include Adriana Ross, who worked at Epstein's Florida mansion to help set up sex sessions for him. Lesley Gross, another former assistant, would work to set up travel arrangements and schedule massages, according to Fox News.
Social media blogger, Nadia Marcinkova, allegedly participated in the trysts with Epstein as a sex slave. She currently is a commercial pilot and influencer going by the moniker "Global Girl."
Many are not sure what drove the women to participate in Epstein's trafficking ring, but Dr. Alan Manevitz, a Manhattan-based psychiatrist speculates that the women could all either be sociopaths, moral disengagement, or stockholm syndrome.
