Feds Drop Charges Against Jeffrey Epstein's Jail Guards
By: April Carson
Two prison guards who admitted to fabricating records on the night Jeffrey Epstein was said to have committed suicide have had their charges dropped by a federal court.
On Monday, a federal judge in New York dismissed all charges against Bureau of Prisons guards Michael Thomas and Tova Noel after prosecutors said in a filing that the pair had accepted deferred prosecution agreements signed back in May, according to CNN.
According to the federal paperwork, Thomas and Noel agreed to give officials “true information regarding their employment by the Bureau of Prisons, including about the events and circumstances described in the Indictment.”
The guards complied with the Department of Justice Inspector General's review and completed 100 hours of volunteer service under the May agreement.
On August 10, 2019, the 66-year-old convicted pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein died of apparent suicide while imprisoned at a federal penitentiary in New York City while facing a potential prison sentence of up to 45 years on charges dating from 2002 to 2005, including some of his sexual abuse victims being as young as 14.
On the night in question, Thomas and Noel were on duty as guards. The initial indictment in the case stated that the pair failed to conduct a required prisoner count during their shift in the specialized unit where Epstein was held.
The guards' attorneys argue that their inactivity was not the result of any malicious intent.
“Ms. Noel's mistakes and shortcomings were a result of inexperience, lack of adequate and sufficient training, and being placed in a position to fail by the Bureau of Prisons' leadership and MCC," said her lawyer, Jason Foy.
In November 2019, the two jailors entered not guilty pleas to conspiracy and making false records.
Following the prosecution of his former lover and "partner-in-crime" Ghislaine Maxwell on a slew of sex trafficking charges, the Epstein case has resurfaced in the media. Maxwell, 60, was convicted of five out of six counts for sexually grooming four teenage girls between 1994 and 2004 and acting as a "sophisticated predator" who preyed on the young and helpless for the benefit of wealthy and famous individuals like Epstein.
For her crimes, Maya Maxwell may face up to 60 years in prison and potential extra time for two of the perjury counts that will be tried separately. It's expected she'll cooperate with authorities on other cases to get a better sentence.
