No Decision Yet On Epstein Bail Request

(New York, NY-AP) — A federal judge says he needs more time to decide whether to release accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein on bail. Judge Richard Berman says he will issue his decision on Thursday morning. Epstein will remain behind bars at the Manhattan Detention Center until then.

His attorneys are hoping he can be released on 77-million dollars bail by putting up his Upper East Side mansion and other assets. The 66-year-old hedge fund manager is currently being held without bail, after his arrest on new accusations that he abused dozens of girls in his New York and Florida homes.
