Jeffrey Epstein Documentary Lands On Netflix On Wednesday
A new Netflix documentary on Jeffrey Epstein will drop on Wednesday, examining the story behind the serial sex offender and how he used power and wealth to aid his abuse.
Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich will feature firsthand accounts and interviews with women who suffered at the hands of Epstein, who committed suicide in August last year at the age of 66.
The sex offender hanged himself in a New York jail while awaiting his trial for sex trafficking charges.
Prior to his arrest, he was accused of abusing women and underage girls for decades and assembling an international sex trafficking ring.
In 2005, the Palm Beach Police received reports of young women seen going into Epstein's residence. In 2006, he was charged with multiple counts of unlawful sex acts with a minor, but managed to make a plea deal to avoid a potential life sentence. He was released in 2009 but continued to abuse women.
The new Netflix documentary will examine and expose the story behind the name, how Epstein gained tremendous wealth and power and how he managed to avoid a life sentence while still carrying out his sickening abuse.

The four-part documentary series will also feature firsthand accounts and interviews with Epstein's accusers.
Some of the women are telling their stories for the very first time, while others' voices will be heard via audio recordings collected by by Palm Beach Police detective Joe Recarey, lead investigator on the case.
These include 14-year-old Shawna River as well as Haley Robson, aged 16. Haley met Epstein via a friend who told her she could make money if she went to visit the sex offender at his house.
She said at first she refused, but when Epstein said he would give her $200 if she brought friends over, she says she recruited around 24 underage girls.
The series is directed by Lisa Bryant and is executive produced by Joe Berlinger (who also worked on Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes).
It's available to stream on Wednesday 27th May from 8am.
