Here are some important documents related to Jeffrey Epstein's legal issues. Hopefully they can help people make informed judgements about his federal criminal case.
Here is the Non-Prosecution Agreement ("NPA") from 2007. Epstein-NPA
Here is the current federal indictment. U-S-v-Jeffrey-Epstein-Indictment
Here is U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra's decision holding that SDFL violated the CVRA. Judge Marra's Order and Opinion Holding that Government Violated Crime Victim's Rights Act
Here is a May 2008 letter from DOJ's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section Chief to Epstein's attorney, explaining why federal prosecution of Epstein was warranted and why there was a legitimate federal interest. The letter is copied to Assistant Attorney General and Criminal Division Chief Alice Fisher. The letter shows both the high levels of Main Justice that Epstein's lawyers had access to and the potential problems that may have been entailed by SDFL in taking him to trial. It does not answer the question of whether Main Justice (or SDNY) knew that standard wording unequivocally limiting the NPA to SDFL was absent from the NPA. Note that this letter was written several months after the NPA was signed but before Epstein entered his state court guilty plea. Oosterbaan Letter
Here is Jane Doe 1's Emergency Petition for Enforcement of the Crime Victim's Rights Act, filed in July 2008. This was one week after Epstein's state court plea. Victim's Emergency Petition for Enforcement
