Billionaire hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein was indicted Monday on new federal sex trafficking charges that allege he paid girls as young as 14 to engage in sex acts and recruit other victims over several years. The charges are a change for the man who has rich and powerful friends ranging from Bill Clinton to President Donald Trump, and who escaped similar charges in Florida in 2008 with a plea deal that got him just 13 months in county jail.

Closer to home, another sexual assault case had an explosive day in court Monday when the man who accused actor Kevin Spacy of sexual assault pleaded the Fifth — a move that the judge said could put the case in jeopardy.

To discuss these legal cases and more, Jim Braude was joined by Dan Small, a partner at Holland & Knight, and Janice Bassil, partner at Bassil & Budreau.
