I’ve mentioned I’ve eaten there before. I was visiting my Cousin and her family which included 2 kids who happily disappeared into the heavily monitored back room to play, yes, Ping Pong. Fortunately since my interest in children is only as potential entrées (don’t be ridiculous, I had an Anchovy, Bacon, and Onion pie) they had Sports on the forward facing monitors. There is no basement and “Two Pies with everything” doesn’t mean “I need two 14 year old hookers, stat.”

Federal prosecutors broke law in Jeffrey Epstein case, judge rules

Federal prosecutors, under former Miami U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, broke the law when they concealed a plea agreement from more than 30 underage victims who had been sexually abused by wealthy New York hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

While the decision marks a victory for crime victims, the federal judge, Kenneth A. Marra, stopped short of overturning Epstein’s plea deal, or issuing an order resolving the case. He instead gave federal prosecutors 15 days to confer with Epstein’s victims and their attorneys to come up with a settlement. The victims did not seek money or damages as part of the suit.

It’s not clear whether the victims, now in their late 20s and early 30s, can, as part of the settlement, demand that the government prosecute Epstein. But others are calling on the Justice Department to take a new look at the case in the wake of the judge’s ruling.

“As a legal matter, the non-prosecution agreement entered into by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Florida does not bind other U.S. Attorneys in other districts. They are free, if they conclude it is appropriate to do so, to bring criminal actions against Mr. Epstein and his co-conspirators,’’ said lawyer David Boies, representing two of Epstein’s victims who claim they were trafficked by Epstein in New York and other areas of the country.

Earlier this month, the Department of Justice announced it was opening a probe of the case in response to calls from three dozen members of Congress. Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Oversight Subcommittee, on Thursday asked the DOJ to re-open Epstein’s plea deal.

Jeffrey Epstein trafficked over 80 underage girls, served 13 months (with access to his employment and workplace) and is a registered sex offender which is not nothing but paltry in comparison to the crimes of which he was convicted.

He is said to be chummy with Bill Clinton, Prince Harry, and Unidicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio.
