prosecutor now Labor Secretary Alex castas defying calls for his head Acosta held a news conference this afternoon where he defended the plea deal that he made with Epstein 11 years ago Stephanie Gosk reports good afternoon we did what we did because we wanted to see Epstein go to jail he needed to go to jail today Labor Secretary Alex Acosta former US attorney in Florida says accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein wouldn't have served any time in jail over a decade ago if his office hadn't stepped in simply put the Palm Beach State Attorney's Office was ready to let Epstein walk free no jail time nothing because of a deal struck in 2008 Epstein pleaded guilty to state charges including soliciting prostitution from a minor in exchange for avoiding federal prosecution he was sentenced to 13 months forced to register as a sex offender and make financial restitution with victims what some critics have called the deal of the century in that agreement the US attorney makes it clear that his office and the FBI were investigating much more serious federal charges including the ones Epstein has pleaded not guilty to this week in New York sex trafficking and conspiracy but Acosta says given the evidence they had at the time in Florida going to court would have been in his words a roll of the dice one of the tough questions in these cases what is the value of a secured guilty plea with registration versus rolling the dice the labor secretary also argued that today's juries and judges are more sympathetic to sexual assault victims today's world does not allow some of the victims shaming that could have taken place at trial 12 years ago Lester Lee today the former Florida State Attorney issued a statement saying that a Kostas recollection of the matter is quote completely wrong and that if a cost it was that concerned about the case then he should have proceeded with federal charges all right Stephanie thank you and now to our exclusive NBC News interview

was in high school Savannah Guthrie has her disturbing story and please let me warn you if you have young children in the room some of the descriptions are graphic in 2001 Jennifer Orosz was 14 years old a freshman at this New York High School when one day she says a woman approached her outside the first time she brought up the name Jeffrey Epstein how did she describe him to you David was a great guy she was just saying like you know he's helped me I've struggled like she was similar to me and when you think of her now you used the phrase you said the recruiter he felt like she was also looking for someone for Hannah present yeah a row says weeks later the recruiter brought her to Epstein's townhouse just blocks from her school she says she and Epstein talked drank wine has a rose left she says she was given $300 by a secretary after a few weeks of visits a rose says she went alone to Epstein's massage room where he pressured her into giving him a massage in that moment it didn't at that moment yes strange to you but at the same time I was scared too so I kind of just followed you know I would have just my underwear on because he that's how he liked it so and I would just get massages back and then he would potentially later on turn over and play with himself then he would finish himself off and then that would be the end of it and do you would still give me the 300 how often do you think we were there yeah like once a week twice a week my freshman year after a rose turned 15 she says things took a turn you know just take your underwear off and get on top and I said I didn't want to and he you know very forcefully um kind of brought me into the table I just did what I was he told me to do I was really scared and I was telling him to stop please stop and did he know a row says she didn't tell anyone immediately about her interactions with Epstein she says she was too scared to go to the police but that she eventually confided in four people all confirmed to NBC News that a Rose told them what happened years ago did Jeffrey Epstein rape you yeah he forcefully raped me but no exactly what he was doing and I don't think cared what hurts even more is though that if I wasn't afraid to come forward sooner then maybe he would some other girls NBC News reached out to F Singh's lawyers for comments several times but they have not responded in previous discussions with roses lawyers Epstein's attorneys have challenged her credibility what would you say to those who say a civil suit lawyers this is about getting money he hurt me badly I prefer not so you know this is one way for me to get justice today lawyers for Jennifer arose told a New York Court they intend to file a civil suit against Epstein next another NBC News exclusivist

    $800 dollars a day. That’s $24,000 a month. $288,000 dollars a year. Per person! Am I the only one who feels my tax dollars are being wasted? And where is this money coming from? I’d have to work for a long time to make $288k. How long would it take for the average income to generate the tax revenue to pay for just one kid? I’d say it’s safe to say they are not only wasting taxpayers money, but are also borrowing money to pay for this! And they are saying it is too little too late!

    Overtime the crime in the United States will be so unbelievable it'll be like living in the South American and African countries. This is going to bring our country down on her knees again like she was under the Obama Administration, thanks to the Democrats for not fixing our Asylum loopholes. as they all come in here taking American jobs. This is truly an invasion.

    When you hear some stainable living, Green New Deal, climate change, this is all part of the United Nations guidelines to the New World Order. Agenda 21 agenda 30 agenda 63 signed by just under 180 Nations back in 1992. George W bush all the way to Obama spoke of this new world order! President Trump, is the only one that's fighting to keep us away from this! He said he's not falling for their agendas. climate change carbon tax would be applied to gasoline and the rise of gasoline and the penalties overtime for even riding in a car where you will end up being forced to ride electric buses, trains and bikes after your shoved into big cities in stack and pack houses called sub stainable living, everyone has to be pushed off the land including ranchers and Farmers since they're already growing lab grown meat by pouring a protein over the cells and with one sample 80,000 hamburger patties are grown and you can't tell the difference already being served in restaurants in Australia, Asia, supposedly coming to Burger King with their new roll out menu called clean meat Caesars Pizza in their little sausages. There are full documentaries on this! I'm not making this up it's out there but search deep because it's getting closer calling things conspiracy theories.

    Crime does pay after all:
    As Maryland's Prince George's County Police Chief Henry Stawinski and FOP president John Teletchea instruct police officers that they are not to cooperate with federal warrants for “civil” matters involving illegal immigrants. No wonder these invaders keep coming!
