More Women Accuse Jeffrey Epstein of Sexual AssaultTwo more women have filed lawsuits against Jeffrey Epstein’s estate, claiming that he and others sexually assaulted them when they were underage.

The plaintiffs, identified as Jane Doe 3 and Jane Doe 4, claim that Eipstein, who committed suicide in prison in August, sexually abused them decades ago in New York City and South Carolina.

Jane Doe 3 claims that Epstein took photos of her in her underwear and then pinned her against the wall and sexuall assaulted her. She was about 15 years old at the time and was an aspiring model in New York City. He represented himself as a modeling photographer connected with a modeling agency, and invited her to a residential address and introduced himself as a casting photographer. The lawsuit alleges she dropped out of high school in the 10th grade because of “psychological and emotional scarring from her encounter with “Epstein.”

Jane Doe 4 claims she met Epstein in 1984 in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina when she was 13 years old. Epstein rented a vacation home from the woman’s mother and hired her as a babysitter. However, when Jane Doe came to the rental home, there weren’t any kids to babysit. The lawsuit alleges that Epstein offered her alcohol and drugs before sexually assaulting her. He continued to do this for several years. Epstein also allegedly took nude photos of her and flew her to New York City at least three times. He brought her to “intimate gatherings with other prominent, wealthy men” where she was “brutally and forcibly battered, assaulted and raped by theses other men she met through Epstein.”

The two women have joined an existing lawsuit filed in August that included the accounts of two women, Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2, who claim they were sexually assaulted by Epstein.

The lawsuit seeks $100 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

Epstein was arrested July 6 for trafficking and abusing dozens of girls in the early 2000s. He pleaded not guilty and died in custody in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.
