SOT, Brad Edwards, Lawyer for two of Epstein's alleged victims: "Both support the government's position of no bail, both believe not only is that he is a flight risk for the obvious reasons, but also that that is the only way to secure the safety of the community and each had a story to tell, a personal story to tell, that is similar to that of many other victims."

SOT, David Boies, Lawyer for one of Epstein's alleged victims: "Girls as young as 14, as you just heard, who were way below the age of consent, were lent out to people who Jeffrey Epstein wanted to have relationships with, gain favours from. This was as commercial a sex trafficking operation as you can imagine."

SCRIPT
Several of US financier Jeffrey Epstein's alleged victims urged a judge to deny the defendant's bail in New York City on Monday.
Brad Edwards, a lawyer for two of the women said his clients "support the government's position of no bail, both believe not only is that he is a flight risk for the obvious reasons, but also that that is the only way to secure the safety of the community."
During the hearing, prosecutors said they found piles of cash and an expired foreign passport, reportedly with Epstein's photo under a different name, in a locked safe at the alleged sex trafficker's home.
The judge said he'd make his decision on Epstein's bail on Thursday.
Epstein was arrested on July 6 and charged with sex trafficking involving girls as young as 14.
