The police released interview images of the alleged teenage victims of Jeffrey Epstein – and revealed intimate details about how they said the billionaire seduced them.
The clips released by the Armed Forces in Palm Beach, Florida, from 2005 show that a 16-year-old says Epstein would offer her $ 200 to recruit more girls to visit him.
In the video, a girl said: & # 39; Every girl Jeffrey meets starts with a massage.
& # 39; The more you do with him, the more you earn. & # 39;

A detective in the room asks the girl: & Do you touch things? & # 39; She answered & # 39; yes & # 39;
& # 39; In short, if you take off your clothes, you will earn more. If you let him do things, you will earn more. & # 39;

Florida authorities launched a probe in Epstein in 2005 after a mother called to claim that her daughter had been molested on his Palm Beach estate.

The FBI conducted its own investigation from 2006, called Operation Leap Year, in which the US law firm drew up a lengthy indictment when the federal probe ended the following year.
In June 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to one count of prostitution and one count of prostitution with a minor.
Both are charges and he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. He also had to register as a sex offender.
He was accused of paying dozens of girls as young as 14 for sex in his properties in New York and Florida (photo, his resort in Palm Beach) between 2002 and 2005
He was released from prison in July 2009, but on 6 July this year the financier was arrested on charges of child trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex.
He was charged with paying dozens of girls as young as 14 for sex in his properties in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005.
Epstein denies the charges, but can get up to 45 years in prison if he is convicted.

In the video, one of the girls revealed how she would rebel against the former hedge fund mogul and not let him do everything with her.
She said: & # 39; I did it naked, but I didn't touch or anything. So then he says: & # 39; You know, listen, I pay you $ 200 for every girl you bring me & # 39 ;. & # 39;
The girl forced and told other girls with a poorer background how they could earn money.
SEX TRAFFIC & COMPOSITION TO SAY SEX TRAFFIC
Sex trafficking of minors (maximum sentence of 40 years imprisonment)
This refers to any recruitment, shelter, transport, provision, acquisition, patronization or request of a minor for a commercial sexual act.
Perpetrators of this crime often target vulnerable children and gain control of them using various manipulative methods.
The perpetrators now have more channels to commit these crimes with the advent of the internet and mobile technology, and are therefore more difficult to grasp in most cases.
In the case of Epstein, he was with an employee in New York, whom he allegedly ordered to contact a minor in Palm Beach to set up a meeting between the two.
This happened at least twice with two different employees and two different minors according to the indictment.
Conspiracy to Sex Traffic Minor (maximum imprisonment of five years)
This refers to the seduction of a minor with a view to a commercial sexual act.
In the case of Epstein, he reportedly contacted the minor victim in New York and organized a meeting at his country house where a commercial sex act took place.
An Epstein employee was also involved in planning that meeting.
Another alleged victim said about the first girl: & # 39; She is so fond of & # 39; & # 39; Oh, do you need to earn extra money? & # 39; & # 39; I'm from & # 39; & # 39; yes & # 39; & # 39 ;. She is like & # 39; & # 39; OK, I can give you $ 200 – there's an older man in Palm Beach, he gets a lot of massages from girls, & # 39; & # 39; that's all she told me. & # 39;
And another girl said: & # 39; It was like a train: I brought my friends, they brought their friends, and it went on and on. & # 39;
An agent asks: & # 39; Did Jeff know that someone was really old or that he didn't care? & # 39;
She answered: I don't think he cared about him. He told me the younger the better. & # 39;
The interviews came before the police searched Epstein & # 39; s $ 20 million home in Palm Beach, where the interior girl's description seemed correct.
They had described the pink spiral staircase, as well as the bathroom with a massage table, toys and oil.
The girls told how predator Epstein entered the room with a towel and told them to take off their clothes.
One said: & # 39; He asked me to take off my shirt, so I took off my shirt and then it was time. & # 39;
A police officer said: & # 39; Have you ever taken off your panties and been completely naked? & # 39;
She said: & # 39; Every now and then, yes. & # 39;
One of the discoveries at Epstein's house were naked photos on the walls of the bedroom and bathroom that were thought to be of underage girls, reports WPBF News.
A teenage girl told how Epstein & # 39; would have different girls in and out all the time & # 39 ;, which she said included models that lived there.
But when the police searched his house, hard drives were missing and his house was stripped – as the police claim, he knew he was being investigated.
Some girls told the police that they were being tempted by the money and returned more often to see Epstein.
One said: & # 39; Every time he tried to touch me a little more, as if I felt more at ease, I think. & # 39;
Yet the young girls said they were disturbed by the meetings and kept away from the El Brillo Way estate.
One of the girls, who claimed she was molested when I was 12, said she told her friend: & # 39; I'm not going if you're not in the room with me. And I didn't know I would be alone with him for those ten minutes, and I thought I'd die. & # 39;
Epstein's lawyer has yet to comment on the allegations.
