Epstein estate agrees to $105 million-plus settlement with Virgin Islands in sex-trafficking case

The U.S. Virgin Islands has reached a $105 million-plus settlement with the estate of the late-financier and accused sex-crime offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The settlement ends a nearly three-year-long civil suit brought by Virgin Islands Attorney General Attorney General Denise George that alleged Epstein and cohorts used the U.S. territory as base for an extensive sex trafficking operation.

Officials sought to hold Epstein accountable after he was accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls and of causing environmental damage on the two tiny islands he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, according to the Associated Press. 

The islands will be sold as part of the agreement.
