Lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein informed Judge Richard M Berman that their client would agree to house arrest at his $77 million Manhattan mansion if released on bail ahead of his trial.
That was one of 14 conditions spelled out in the letter, which the defense was ordered to submit by noon ahead of Judge Berman’s ruling on Monday.
Epstein’s lawyers said that their client would also install surveillance cameras inside and outside the mansion, wear electronic monitoring with a global positioning system,’ and have no one ‘enter the residence, other than Mr. Epstein and his attorneys.’
There was no mention of whom he could contact on his phone however, and while he agreed to a bond it has long been difficult to assess his net worth.
The lawyers stated that the bond would be in ‘an amount set by the court after reviewing additional information regarding Mr. Epstein’s finances, which Mr. Epstein will seek the court’s permission to provide via sealed supplemental disclosure.’
It was also noted: ‘Mr. Epstein stands ready and willing to pay for 24-hour armed guards should the Court deem it necessary or appropriate.’
Seeking release: Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyers submitted a letter to Judge Richard Berman on Thursday stating their client would agree to 14 conditions if released on bail (Epstein outside his mansion in 2019)
