Two Jail Workers Charged in Connection to Jeffrey Epstein’s Death.

According to a recent report by the ‘New York Times,’ two federal workers are expected to be arrested and charged for their part in Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide.

.

The Bureau of Prisons employees who were responsible for monitoring Epstein on the day of his death, Aug.

10, reportedly failed to perform the proper safety checks.

.

Epstein, who was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges, was being held in a highly monitored section of the Metropolitan Correctional Center.

Rather than check on Epstein every half-hour as they were instructed, the two unidentified men fell asleep for hours.

.

They then attempted to falsify records in order to cover up their indiscretion.

.

According to the Associated Press, both corrections officers were initially offered plea deals but chose to turn them down.

.

They will now reportedly appear in the United States District Court in Manhattan on Nov.

19 to face their charges.
