Disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein spent at least a couple of hours alone in his cell in New York’s Metropolitan Correction Center with an as-of-yet unidentified woman a day after being taken off of suicide watch.
Per the New York Post:
A visiting attorney, who asked that his name not be used, told Forbes Thursday that he saw the young woman with Epstein on July 30, when the disgraced financier was transferred into the facility’s Special Housing Unit.
“The optics were startling,” the attorney told the outlet. “Because she was young. And pretty.”
He speculated that the woman could be a lawyer — as the multimillionaire paid members of his legal team to visit him for nearly eight hours a day, so he could avoid his cell and sit in a room designated for attorney meetings, NBC News reported last week.
The visiting attorney told Forbes that when he visited that day, Epstein’s main lawyer, Reid Weingarten, wasn’t there — and neither were any of his other known attorneys. It was only the mystery woman.
The woman was reportedly dressed casually and didn’t appear to be carrying any case files.
