From Town & Country

It's been almost a year since federal prosecutors charged financier Jeffrey Epstein with one count of sex trafficking of a minor and one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking.

Following the indictment, Epstein pleaded not guilty on both counts. He was denied bail and remained in jail until August 10, when he died by apparent suicide.

Since then, survivors of his alleged crimes have been fighting to see justice, and to see Epstein's associates held accountable for the roles they played in his criminal activity.

Later this month, a new four-part docuseries from director Lisa Bryant called Filthy Rich will take a look back at Epstein's life and the privileges that allowed him to escape prosecution for as long as he did.

A summary for the Netflix program suggests that the film will feature numerous interviews with survivors, recounting their experiences with Epstein. "Leading up to his 2019 arrest, mysterious tycoon Jeffrey Epstein was accused of abusing women and underage girls for decades, assembling a network of enablers to help carry out and cover up his crimes," it reads.

"With their frightening firsthand accounts, Epstein’s accusers are the leading voices in director Lisa Bryant’s four-part docuseries Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich. By revealing their emotional scars, some for the very first time, the sisterhood of survivors intend to stop predators—and the American justice system—from silencing the next generation."
