A judge rules that Alexander Acosta and other prosecutors violated U.S. law in 2008 by offering a plea deal that gave Jeffrey Epstein immunity from federal charges.

Acosta, who at the time was the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Florida, opted not to prosecute Epstein on federal sex traffic laws and instead struck a deal that ultimately granted him immunity. More than 30 of Epstein’s victims were not notified of the arrangement. “Particularly problematic was the Government’s decision to conceal the existence of the [agreement] and mislead the victims to believe that federal prosecution was still a possibility,” the judge wrote.

Despite this, an investigation by William Barr’s DOJ concludes in 2020 that, no, Acosta and other prosecutors showed no misconduct. (Barr’s father knew Epstein a long time ago).

According to Vicky Ward, Acosta told Trump Administration officials that he had no say in the matter because Epstein belonged to the Intelligence community.
