Florida Gov Launches New Probe Into Epstein Case
A new report revealed on Tuesday that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered a criminal investigation into the handling of sexual predator and child rapist Jeffrey Epstein’s case.
According to the Miami Herald, DeSantis wants an investigation of the Palm Beach sheriff and the state prosecutors who worked on the case.
Despite an apparently strong case, the prosecutors only brought a relatively minor charge of prostitution against Epstein that resulted in a 13-month jail sentence during which he was allowed to leave for 12 hours a day, six days a week.
