Jeffrey Epstein proposes a motion for the provisional release to undergo house arrest at a $ 77 million mansion, to recruit armed guards, to wear an electronic monitor and to set up substantial bonds for the trial
- Jeffrey Epstein's lawyers filed a letter with Judge Richard Berman on Thursday, stating that their client agreed to 14 conditions if he was released on bail
- These include house arrest in his NYC mansion, wearing an electronic monitor, installing security cameras & hiring armed guards
- He also agreed to pay a bond in & # 39; an amount determined by the court after reviewing additional information about Mr. Epstein's finances.
Lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein informed Judge Richard M Berman that their client would agree to house arrest in his $ 77 million mansion in Manhattan if he was released on bail for his trial.
That was one of the 14 conditions set out in the letter that the defense had to submit at 12 noon before Judge Berman's judgment on Monday.
Epstein & # 39; s lawyers said their client would also install surveillance cameras & # 39; s inside and outside the home, wear electronic surveillance with a global positioning system, & & # 39; no one would & & # 39; would enter the house, unlike Mr Epstein and his lawyers. & # 39;
However, no mention was made of who he could contact on his telephone, and while agreeing to a band, it was long difficult to assess his net worth.
The lawyers stated that the bond in & # 39; an amount would be determined by the court after reviewing additional information about Mr. Epstein's finances, who will ask Mr. Epstein for court permission to provide via sealed additional disclosure. & # 39;
It was also noted: & # 39; Mr. Epstein is ready and willing to pay for 24-hour armed guards if the Court deems it necessary or appropriate. & # 39;

Epstein reported daily to pre-arranged services on the phone, had an administrator or trustees enter his house to check him out and log off all vehicles and ground his jet.
Federal prosecutors are given a chance to respond to this submission on Friday, and in a previously submitted bail memorandum asked that Epstein be held behind bars prior to his trial.
He is currently at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Manhattan, the same facility where the Mexican drug lord El Chapo is currently located.
Judge Berman will rule on Monday.
& # 39; In essence, the government is trying to house a self-produced New York resident and a lifelong American resident on the basis of dated allegations for which he has already been convicted and punished – the behavior of relitigation excluded by previous federal non-prosecution & # 39 ;, Epstein lawyer Reid Weingarten wrote in his entry.
& # 39; The government makes this drastic question although Epstein has never tried to flee the United States – despite the conviction of a Florida federal judge that he could destroy the NPA in certain circumstances, potentially threaten new allegations, and notwithstanding a legally incorrect government claim in additional disputes that Mr. Epstein was the subject of possible prosecution in other federal judicial districts, including this one specifically. & # 39;
The letter also praises Epstein's rise to wealth from a humble beginning, while emphasizing that he does not speak foreign languages.
& # 39; Epstein, 66, is an American citizen who has lived in this country his entire life. Born and raised in Coney Island, he worked his way up from humble origins – his father was a New York church worker in the Parks Department – and earned every penny he earned with nothing more than a high school diploma, & # 39; .
& # 39; He only speaks English and knows no other languages. He does not own foreign companies and does not own foreign bank accounts. Five of the six residences that he maintains are located here in America. His brother, niece and nephew all live here too. & # 39;
