In a recent opinion piece featured in the Townhall.com, Doreen Denny – CWA’s Senior Director of Government Relations discusses the Jeffrey Epstein case and asks, ” … if justice will be done in sex cases involving wealthy, sex-obsessed men?”
“Jeffrey Epstein is back in the news. The case against multi-millionaire, serial pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is sickening, outrageous, and a total annihilation of due process and the rule of law. The absolute tragedy of the case cannot be overstated.
Pedophile sex trafficking charges against Epstein underscore the travesty of how wealthy, sex-obsessed men can get away with years of predatory behavior and leverage special treatment from prosecutors. In Epstein’s case, vulnerable girls as young as 13 were groomed and enticed with cash for massages and sexual favors. They were victims of sexual abuse.
In November, the confirmation hearing of William Barr for Attorney General served as a catalyst for resurrecting the decade-old case. Senator Ben Sasse called for an investigation of the Department of Justice’s handling of the plea deal after The Miami Herald published a bombshell investigative report. That report mustered scant attention. Outrage was relegated to random op-ed pages and an occasional columnist.”
