The ‘Relentless Pursuit’ Of Jeffrey Epstein
Despite financier Jeffrey Epstein’s untimely end, those in his orbit are still dealing with the ramifications of a web of alleged crimes, including sexual abuse and sex trafficking.
Attorney Bradley Edwards represented more than 20 Epstein accusers over the course of a decade. He writes all about that pursuit for justice in his new memoir, “Relentless Pursuit: My Fight for the Victims of Jeffrey Epstein.”
One of his clients is Courtney Wild, a victims’ advocate who was 14 when she was first brought to Epstein’s Florida mansion. She was told by a friend that she’d be “giving a massage” to an older man; she says those massages quickly became sexual assaults. Now, she’s an advocate for victims of violent crime, and one of the dozens of women who fought Epstein — and the U.S. government — in court.
We talk to Wild and Edwards about their fight to bring down an alleged sexual predator… and what they did when that alleged predator killed himself.
