One accuser, using the name Jane Doe, said in her statement, "He died as he lived his life: taking the easy way out".
Lawyers for the 66-year-old, who was found unresponsive in his prison cell on August 10 and declared dead about an hour later, said they have evidence suggesting Epstein was killed.
Prosecutors have already "gone out of their way to make clear" they will aggressively pursue the case, including any accomplices and the possibility of civil forfeiture to unlock money for victims, said Mimi Rocah, a former federal prosecutor in NY who is now a criminal-justice fellow at Pace University's law school.
However, when asked by a reporter what she makes of Andrew's denials, Giuffre responded: "He knows what he's done, and he can attest to that".
"I was his slave".
"It was both empowering and infuriating to know that the person who I needed to hear those words is not here to hear them", accuser Chauntae Davies said. His death was ruled a suicide by hanging by The New York City Medical Examiner's office.
She told the court she feels "very angry and sad" that he killed himself before going on trial for alleged sex trafficking, adding that "justice has never been served in this case".
Jeffrey Epstein's lawyers have voiced their scepticism over the suicide ruling.
Davies told the court Epstein hired her to give massages.
At the hearing, several of the alleged female victims told painful anecdotes about how they were allegedly introduced to Epstein, recruited by Ghislaine Maxwell or Sarah Kellen and taken to his Upper East Side home where they were sexually abused.

Farmers' Almanac Predicts a 'Polar Coaster' Winter With Harsh Weather

Andrew has always denied her allegations. "We are survivors and the pursuit of justice should not abate". The deal was negotiated by former USA attorney Alex Acosta, who recently stepped down as President Trump's secretary of labor.
Lawyers representing several women who say they were sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein have urged the UK's Prince Andrew to come forward and answer questions, following claims of sexual misconduct against the British royal.
Giuffre said in a sworn affidavit that she was flown on Epstein's private planes to his properties in New Mexico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Paris and NY, and said meetings were also arranged for sex in London and elsewhere with Prince Andrew.
Speaking to reporters in NY yesterday, Giuffre said the royal knows what he's done and she hopes he comes clean about it.
Epstein, who befriended many celebrities and politicians over the years, including Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, was arrested in July and charged with trafficking girls as young as 14 for sex. The new charges could have resulted in a prison term of as much as 45 years.
Epstein was previously convicted in 2008 in a Florida state court for paying young girls for sexual massages.
Epstein's arrest in NY came more than a decade after he avoided prosecution on similar federal charges in Florida by striking a deal enabling him to plead guilty to state prostitution charges.
At the end of the hearing, Mr Berman said "everyone has benefited greatly" from hearing from the women.
Martin Weinberg, a second Epstein lawyer, said Judge Berman had a "pivotal role to find out what happened". "Then we are in a whole different territory", he said, saying that the whole case was full of "conspiracy theory galore". The incident is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department's inspector general's office, which are attempting to determine what happened and how to assess whether any policies were violated or crimes committed.
