Former hedge-fund manager and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein may have kept his client list under wraps, but he didn't do the same with a social circle that included presidents and Hollywood stars.
Epstein, who ran a business out of the US Virgin Islands, was known for jetsetting with the likes of former President Bill Clinton, and Prince Andrew (the third child of the UK's Queen Elizabeth).
"I invest in people - be it politics or science," Epstein was known to say, according to New York Magazine. "It's what I do."
Epstein, 66, was arrested on charges of sex trafficking of minors on July 6 shortly after exiting his private jet in New Jersey. He pleaded not guilty on July 8. However, Epstein has pleaded guilty in 2007 to charges of solicitation of prostitution and procurement of minors for prostitution in Florida.
