Published on

On Monday, a federal magistrate issued an order mandating the redaction of photographs that were “inadvertently disclosed” from publicly available records pertaining to Jeffrey Epstein, an individual accused of sex trafficking.

According to The New York Post, the photographs depicted adolescent women and girls posing on the infamous Caribbean island owned by Epstein.

“The Clerk of the Court is directed to strike docket entry 1332-7 in the above-captioned case because it contains inadvertently disclosed images that should have been redacted. Counsel shall re-file the stricken document as soon as is practicable,” U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska said in the order.

The photographs were allegedly captured on Little St. James Island in 2006 and were presented to the court by Sarah Ransome, an accuser of Epstein, as reported by the Post.

Ransome, who is currently 37 years old, is depicted in one of the social media-shared images enveloped in a white towel.

The Post also reported that photographs of Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s sex crime accomplice, and Jean-Luc Brunel, his companion who was a French modeling scout and was discovered deceased in a Parisian prison cell after being charged with raping underage girls, are also included.

Twenty years in prison is the term to which Maxwell is sentenced for sexually exploiting minors.

In 2022, the Post reported that Ransome testified in Maxwell’s criminal case that her time on Epstein’s island was “[l]ike Hotel California, you could check into the Epstein-Maxwell dungeon of sexual hell, but you could never leave.”

Ransome stated, “I frequently experience flashbacks and wake up in a cold sweat from nightmares reliving the awful experience.”

In 2015, she submitted the photographs in question to the court in connection with a lawsuit filed against Maxwell by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, an accuser of Epstein.
