Epstein has pleaded not guilty in NY to two charges including sex trafficking of minors.

He paid one person named as a imaginable co-conspirator in the case $100,000 and the assorted suspected co-conspirator $250,000, the prosecutors voice.

According to the New York Times, the allegation was revealed in a new court filing in which "prosecutors said that Mr. Epstein had paid significant amounts of money to influence individuals who were close to him and who might be witnesses against him at trial".

After the hedge-funder was arrested last Saturday on child sex-trafficking charges, Hoffenberg's claims began to re-emerge.

Prosecutors have accused him of sexually exploiting dozens of underage teenage girls at his homes in Manhattan, and Palm Beach, Florida, between 2002 and 2005.

He has asked to be allowed to dwell up for trial beneath condominium arrest, however prosecutors argued in the courtroom filing on Friday that he wants to be saved on the attend of bars.

They cited his payments to possible witnesses and the risk that he would flee as reasons to keep him in jail, while describing him as "unrepentant and unreformed". Balderas' office has not said, however, how many accusers his office has interviewed and he has not elaborated on what they say took place at the ranch.

The move comes following growing calls for his resignation over his handling of a plea deal with wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein, who is once more accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls.
