Epstein victim thought ‘I just have to get by this’ when paedophi…




Annie Farmer said she told the FBI in 2007 that she had been groped by Ghislaine Maxwell when she was just 16-years-old, and reported the alleged abuse to police numerous times afterwards, but said forces failed to follow up on her accusations.

Farmer said she was introduced to Epstein by her older sister Maria, who was employed by the financier at the time and believed the billionaire could help Farmer with the cost of her education.

During their first meeting at Epstein’s Upper East Side mansion, he treated the sisters with champagne and tickets to see the Phantom of the Opera.

On another event, Farmer said Epstein stroked her hand and arm while at the cinema, which made her feel “sick to my stomach”.

She said she did not tell her sister about the incident because she was “very confused” and was worried “she [Maria] might lose her job and it would be bad for her” if she confronted Epstein.

Maria Farmer, who is not a part of this case, has expressed guilt over having introduced Epstein to her sister, and was unaware of the incidents until she claimed she later had her own abusive encounter with Epstein and Maxwell.
