Fake passport, cash and diamonds found in Epstein's home, prosecutors say

Federal prosecutors announced Monday that they found a fake passport, "piles" of cash and "dozens" of diamonds in financier Jeffrey Epstein's home, according to The Associated Press.

The passport listed a residence in Saudi Arabia and a photo of Epstein but with a different name, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller reportedly revealed during a bail hearing.


Epstein was charged last week with sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking. 

The U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan alleges he abused dozens of underage girls from 2002 to 2005.

Prosecutors say Epstein created “a network and operation enabling him to sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls,” and that he paid victims to recruit other girls.

He pleaded not guilty to those charges last week.

Epstein has also been accused of witness tampering by federal prosecutors since being arrested.

Authorities previously revealed that they found a trove of nude photos of what appeared to be underaged girls in the financier's residence.

The new set of charges against Epstein come after he pleaded guilty to sex trafficking and was sentenced to 13 months in prison over a decade ago.
