Ron DeSantis pulled back the curtain on the Jeffrey Epstein scandal with this move

Mar 8, 2024

It appeared that Jeffrey Epstein would take many of his secrets with him to the grave.

Evidence about his appalling crimes is going to be brought to light.

And that’s because Ron DeSantis pulled back the curtain on the Jeffrey Epstein scandal with this move.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law that would authorize the release of information from the first criminal investigation into the late child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

The first criminal case against Epstein was brought in 2006 by local prosecutors in Palm Beach County, Florida, where he had one of his many residences.

The Palm Beach Police Department called out the local prosecutor for not aggressively pursuing the case and eventually went to the FBI for help with the investigation.

 “Rather than charge Epstein directly, the State Attorney at the time chose to present evidence to a grand jury — ensuring the names of those involved and the details of the accusations were kept sealed,” DeSantis’ office said in a press release.

Ron DeSantis signs bill to release Jeffrey Epstein grand jury information

The Florida governor signed the bill at a signing ceremony in Palm Beach with two of Epstein’s victims.

“The public deserves to know who participated in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking,” DeSantis said. “Nobody should be protected from facing justice due to their wealth or status, and those who harm children should be exposed and punished to the fullest extent of the law.”

Details from a grand jury investigation in Florida will be released if the following conditions are met, according to the Governor’s office: 

The subject of the grand jury inquiry is dead. 

The investigation was about sexual activity with a minor. 

The testimony was previously disclosed by a court order. 

The state attorney is notified.

The Epstein case satisfies all four criteria, so the grand jury documents will be released on July 1, 2024.

DeSantis says the bill helps victims achieve some justice

Epstein got a sweetheart deal in the Palm Beach County criminal case, where he received an 18-month jail sentence with work release six days a week.

“The legislature and I agreed that there needs to be a mechanism in some of these rare circumstances where people can get the truth, and where we can try to pursue justice,” DeSantis said. “And so, we’re now sitting here decades later, and you’ve had Epstein and then Maxwell is actually in prison in Florida.”

DeSantis wondered why many of the details of Epstein’s life are still shrouded in secrecy. 

“And yet nothing else has ever happened with any of this,” DeSantis continued. “How is that possible given the magnitude of what was going on? And what was going on in Florida was only a fraction of what was happening because you had activities and abuse in New York City, in the Virgin Islands. And this was a massive, massive operation here that was targeting these very, very young girls.”

The truth about the first criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein will finally be brought to light.
