The indictment filed in NY this week accuses Epstein of paying girls hundreds of dollars in cash for massages and then molesting them at his homes in Palm Beach, Florida, and NY from 2002 through 2005. His bail hearing is set for Monday.
In New Mexico, the attorney general said he has been in touch with the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of NY. "He made a deal that people were happy with and then 12 years later, they're not happy with it", he said, telling the press, "You'll have to figure all of that out". Brown spoke to Epstein's accusers, who, as she reported past year, "believe they were betrayed by the very prosecutors who pledged to protect them".
At the center of Jeffrey Epstein's secluded New Mexico ranch sits a sprawling residence the financier built decades ago - complete with plans for a 4,000-square-foot (372-square-meter) courtyard, a living room roughly the size of the average American home and a nearby private airplane runway.
That arrangement, which had been widely criticized as being too lenient, received new scrutiny this week after federal prosecutors in NY unsealed the new sex trafficking charges against Epstein.
Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta will be stepping down in a week over his past involvement in a highly controversial plea deal for financier Jeffrey Epstein, who is now facing sex trafficking charges.

But she got off to a nightmare start as Halep broke twice to race into a 4-0 lead. It was a little bit "a deer in the headlights" for me", Williams said.
"As part of the arrangement, Acosta agreed - despite a federal law to the contrary - that the deal would be kept from the victims". It plans to forward any evidence to federal authorities. He has pleaded not guilty.
In exchange, the Southern District of Florida abandoned its criminal investigation of Epstein's conduct, agreed not to prosecute him federally, and-incredibly-agreed not to prosecute anyone else who helped him procure underage girls for sex.
"While NBC's Stephanie Gosk gave a passing mention to both Clinton and Trump (without any mention of the "Lolita Express"), CBS This Morning's Mola Lenghi spent more time on both Trump and Clinton, while emphasizing comments Trump made praising Epstein in 2002".
In a court filing, Epstein's lawyers argued that he had long lived with the fear that federal prosecutors might pursue sexual abuse charges against him again and had never sought to flee the country.
Prosecutors complained to Berman in a letter on Thursday that Epstein's lawyers hadn't filed the paperwork, making it impossible to "meaningfully respond" to their argument that he should be held on house arrest pending trial.
Acosta resigned on Friday amid a furor over a plea deal that he struck with Epstein when Acosta was USA attorney for South Florida. It's due by 5 p.m. Friday.
They said he also has a history of obstruction and manipulation of witnesses, including in the past year, and victims have told prosecutors they might be harassed or abused if he is freed. They proposed using Epstein's $77m mansion and private jet as collateral, and pledged to pay for security personnel to enforce his house arrest.
