Jeffrey Epstein denied bail in federal case

Financier Jeffrey Epstein has been denied bail in federal case alleging he sexually abused underage girls.

The 66-year-old asked the judge to allow him to live in his mansion, under the supervision of armed private security and a court-appointed, live-in trustee who would monitor his compliance with bail conditions.

Prosecutors said Epstein is an "extreme" flight risk. With his wealth and the seriousness of the charges he faces, they said he should not be eligible for bail.

The multimillionaire is being held in isolation at a federal detention facility.

He is charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors related to alleged conduct that occurred between 2002 and 2005. 

He has pleaded not guilty.
