According to a bombshell report, prison records were falsified on the morning of accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s death.
On the night that Epstein allegedly killed himself, prison guards just so happened to fall asleep and did not check on him for several hours. They then went on to falsify the prison records to hide the fact that they fell asleep.
On Tuesday, it was announced by the Justice Department that that the warden of the jail would be temporarily reassigned and two of the prison guards who fell asleep would be put on paid administrative leave.
“The two correctional officers in the special housing unit where Mr. Epstein was held — 9 South — falsely recorded in a log that they had checked on the financier, who was facing sex trafficking charges, every 30 minutes, as was required,” The New York Times reported. “Such false entries in an official log could constitute a federal crime.”
The Times added that the guards fell asleep for three hours which is when Epstein committed suicide.
“Today, the Attorney General directed the Bureau of Prisons to temporarily assign the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York to the Bureau’s Northeast Regional Office pending the outcome of the FBI and OIG investigations into the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, a former MCC inmate,” Kerri Kupec of the DOJ said on Tuesday. “FCI Otisville Warden James Petrucci has been named Acting Warden of the MCC New York. The Bureau of Prisons also placed on administrative leave two MCC staff assigned to Mr. Epstein’s unit pending the outcome of the investigations. Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant.”
