Here’s what we know so far…
A judge formally ended the criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein.
U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman took the procedural step of adding his initials to an order dismissing the indictment that charged the 66-year-old Epstein with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking.
U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman noted that the law required the dismissal after Epstein killed himself in jail Aug. 10 while he was awaiting trial.
At the unusual hearing, women detailed how Epstein abused them. The women said he used his financial power and connections to famous people to make them vulnerable.
Attorney General William Barr has promised the Justice Department he will pursue those who enabled Epstein to carry out the sexual assaults.
