NEW YORK (AP) — One of Jeffrey Epstein's accusers urged other women Tuesday to come forward with allegations against the wealthy financier as federal authorities prosecute him on sex charges.

Courtney Wild told reporters at a news conference in New York that Epstein "will never stop sexually abusing children until he is in jail."

Bill Clinton 'knows nothing' about financier Jeffrey Epstein's 'terrible crimes,' former president's spokesman says

Bill Clinton 'knows nothing' about financier Jeffrey Epstein's 'terrible crimes,' former president's spokesman says Bill Clinton "knows nothing" about the "terrible crimes" linked to Jeffrey Epstein, the former president's spokesman said Monday, in Clinton's first statement after new sex-trafficking charges were lobbed against the wealthy financier. "In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation," the statement said. "Staff, supporters of the foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip.

"We will not get justice until you speak out," Wild said, addressing anyone who believes they have been abused by Epstein. "You are not alone, and this was not your fault."

Wild's remarks came a day after she appeared in Manhattan federal court and urged a judge to deny Epstein bail. She said Epstein started sexually abusing her when she was 14 in Palm Beach, Florida.

An email was sent to Epstein's attorney seeking comment.

Epstein has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and sex trafficking charges brought by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan. Wild's accusations are not part of that indictment.

Epstein's attorneys have argued that the new charges should not have been filed because he signed a non-prosecution agreement with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami more than a decade ago.

Wild's attorney, Brad Edwards, said his client was first identified as a victim of Epstein in 2005 but was not consulted about the once-secret non-prosecution deal that allowed Epstein to plead guilty to lesser state charges.

He said he was surprised by Epstein's recent arrest.

Jeffrey Epstein appeals decision to deny bail in sex trafficking case.
Financier Jeffrey Epstein has appealed a federal judge's decision to keep him in jail while he awaits trial on sex trafficking charges. According to a court filing made public on Tuesday, Epstein will ask the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn the judge's July 18 rejection of his request to remain under house arrest in his mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side. In denying bail, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan expressed concern that Epstein's "past sexual conduct is not likely to have abated," and that there might be "new victims" if Epstein were released. Epstein has pleaded not guilty.
