AT least 14 more women, some of them underage, have come forward claiming to be victims of billionaire alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein, 66, was arrested last Saturday and is facing up to 45 years in jail for allegedly abusing “dozens” of victims, some as young as 14.

US prosecutors say they found “an extraordinary” number of snaps of nude and partially nude young women at his mansion.
Lawyers said other women claiming to be victims of his alleged trafficking scheme had come forward after an appeal by prosecutors.
Attorney Jack Scarola said some were underage during their alleged encounters with the financier in New York and Florida.
Epstein, a former friend of Prince Andrew, has been refused bail.
His lawyers put up his £61million Manhattan mansion and private jet as surety but prosecutors claimed he was likely to try to flee.
