Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse victims are now able to start filing compensation claims against his estate.
Earlier this month, a U.S. Virgin Islands probate judge signed off for the Epstein Victims’ Compensation Program to begin accepting claims starting on Thursday, June 25.
An estimated $630 million has been allocated to the fund. The funds will be distributed to victims based upon their allegations that can be proven.
Victims who have more evidence and more significant damages will receive more money.
Epstein, who was accused of sexually abusing underage girls and running a sex trafficking ring, was found dead in his jail cell at New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center on Aug,. 10, 2019. A medical examiner determined his cause of death was suicide by hanging.
