U.S. House Requests Info on Local Officials’ Role in 2006 Epstein Case

first_imgThe U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Oversight and Reform is setting its sights on reviewing “the role of state or local officials” in the secret non-prosecution deal and jail treatment given to Jeffrey Epstein in Palm Beach County more than a decade ago.Letters sent to the U.S. Justice Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Friday show that the Committee is requesting a long list of documents and emails related to the case.According to House Representative and committee member Lois Frankel, “We are going to try to get anything we can. I know they are serious about looking at the Epstein case.”Specifically, the committee is looking for information about how the non-prosecution agreement was kept from Epstein’s teenage victims, as well as how the Palm Beach multimillionaire was allowed to spend six days a week, 12 hours a day on work release while he served 13 months of an 18-month jail sentence.Although no local officials are named in the letters, Frankel says she wants to hear testimony from Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw and former State Attorney Barry Krischer, as well as former U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta.Current State Attorney Dave Aronberg and Clerk & Comptroller Sharon Bock are fighting the public release of those documents.Acosta’s office worked out the non-prosecution agreement with Epstein’s attorneys in 2008. In return, federal prosecutors scrapped a 53-page indictment that could have sent Epstein to prison for decades.Krischer has denied having any role with the non-prosecution agreement, although The Palm Beach Post found emails revealing that he helped broker the deal between Acosta’s office and Epstein’s defense attorneys.Under the deal, Epstein pleaded guilty to two felony prostitution-related charges. He was then allowed to leave the jail under work release in order to work at his newly formed Florida Science Foundation. However, one woman says she was flown in as a teenager in order to have sex with him there.Epstein was charged with sex trafficking in New York last July, when additional victims went public with their allegations. He hanged himself in a Manhattan jail cell the following month.The Oversight Committee has given a January 3 deadline for the documents to be turned over.They have given the same deadline to Attorney General William Barr.U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra of West Palm Beach found last February that federal prosecutors violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act when they concealed the existence of the non-prosecution agreement. However, he ruled last September that Epstein’s death meant the judge could not discard the agreement, which also protected Epstein’s accused co-conspirators.last_img read more

How the Dodgers outplayed Brewers in Game 7 to return to the World Series

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “This one’s by far more special than any other one because of the way we got here,” Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said. “Being 10 games under early in the year, nine games back, going into September in third place at one point, forcing a Game 163 and then winning that division for a sixth time, coming here and playing a seventh game in a really, really tough place to play on the road.“It’s just been a special year all the way around.”The Game 7 victory that got them there featured the hallmarks of this Dodgers team – home runs and a key contribution from one of their multi-position moving pieces.Cody Bellinger (the NLCS MVP) hit a two-run shot in the second inning off Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin to give the Dodgers the lead. Despite the Brewers trailing, Craig Counsell played his ace, bringing Josh Hader into the game in the third inning.Hader pitched his expected three scoreless innings. As soon as he left, the Dodgers were back in business.Max Muncy led off the fifth with a single off reliever Xavier Cedeno. Justin Turner followed with another off reliever Jeremy Jeffress who did get Manny Machado to fly out and Bellinger to bounce into a forceout.That brought up Yasiel Puig, who had a special moment with Jeffress in Game 3, gesturing in frustration at Jeffress to give him something to hit as he drew a ninth-inning walk in the Brewers’ shutout victory.Jeffress gave him something to hit this time – a 1-and-1 curveball that Puig hammered over the center field fence. The three-run shot (one of Puig’s three hits) bookended Bellinger’s blast around Hader’s run.For the NL leaders in home runs this season, the Dodgers’ first multi-home run game of the NLCS couldn’t have come at a better time. Counsell’s bullpen machinations meant nothing as the Dodgers turned to their own bullpen, closing it out with 4-1/3 innings of scoreless relief – the last inning by Clayton Kershaw.But everything might have been different if not for a play by Taylor in the fifth inning.With the Dodgers clinging to just a one-run lead at the time, Lorenzo Cain doubled with two outs, sending Dave Roberts to his bullpen. Pitching on back-to-back days for the first time in his major-league life – and one day after learning his grandmother had died – Julio Urias came in to face Christian Yelich.Yelich homered in the first inning off Dodgers starter Walker Buehler. This time, he drilled a slicing drive into the left-center field gap that had game-tying double written all over it.“At that point in time, I thought the game was tied,” Roberts said. “But CT got a great break on the ball and really made a game-saving play. Once the game is tied, anything can happen. The momentum shifts.”Bellinger put it even more bluntly.Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start center_img “That was the catch of the year,” he said.Taylor ran it down at the warning track and made a spectacular, sliding catch to rob Yelich of the hit.“The way it was slicing off the bat, my original route was kind of off. I had to kind of banana back,” Taylor said of the catch.Taylor’s route to the catch was even more circuitous than that. He went from the Dodgers’ starting center fielder on Opening Day to their shortstop after Corey Seager was lost to elbow surgery to part-time player moving all over the diamond after the acquisition of Manny Machado – but emblematic of the Dodgers’ road back to the World Series.“The struggle was real this year,” Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi said in the celebratory locker room. “From being 10 games under .500, the dogfight in the division, going to Game 163, really having our backs up to the wall coming into this game – easy really wasn’t in our playbook this year up to this point. So I guess it was fitting that this went to Game 7.” PreviousEmpty bottles are seen as Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates in the clubhouse after Game 7 of the National League Championship Series baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, in Milwaukee.

(AP Photo/Matt Slocum)ExpandMILWAUKEE — And … they’re back.After 12 months of talking about it, planning for it and praying for it, the Dodgers will get their do-over. Neither Tommy John surgeries for their shortstop nor diminished velocity for their ace nor a season extended to 163 games could stay these Dodgers from the completion of their round trip.Thirty years to the day after the clinching victory in their last World Series championship, the Dodgers got another chance to end the drought that has followed, beating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday night.“Oh, countless. Countless,” Dodgers outfielder Chris Taylor said when asked how often the team had talked collectively or thought individually about getting back to the World Series. “That was the message from Day One of spring training. Honestly, it was the message from after Game 7 last year. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “I think we learned from that as a team and everybody thought about this moment and getting back to the World Series and finishing the job this time.”The Dodgers will begin play in their 20th World Series on Tuesday at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox – the long-awaited rematch of the 1916 Series between the Red Sox and Brooklyn Robins (won by the Sox in five games).“I’m excited about going to Boston,” Dodgers team president and CEO Stan Kasten said, a twinkle in his eye as he delivered a line he’d been preparing since the Red Sox won the ALCS.“I think it’s a little unfair to make us play these high-payroll teams. But we’re going to give it our best shot.”The Red Sox had the highest payroll in the majors this year (approximately $228.4 million) while the Dodgers ($197 million) slipped to third after five years of leading the majors.last_img read more
