The judge in case did not rule on bail - saying he need more more time to consider the decision.
The government mentioned this while making its case that Epstein should not be let out of jail ahead of trial, arguing that he is about as big of a flight risk as there is. Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said that other witnesses have contacted authorities since Epstein's indictment.
Courtney Wild, one of the unnamed victims in the 2008 lawsuit against the Department of Justice for the secret plea deal that allowed Epstein to avoid similar charges, spoke for the first time in court with a fellow accuser.
Epstein's lawyers said the accusations against him are "outside the margins of federal criminal law" and don't constitute sex trafficking since there were no allegations that he "trafficked anybody for commercial profit; that he forced, coerced, defrauded, or enslaved anybody".
Prosecutors have said Epstein must remain in jail to prevent him from fleeing the country, citing his wealth and connections overseas, as well as allegations he paid two potential witnesses past year in an apparent effort to influence them.
Rossmiller said the evidence against Epstein was "getting stronger every single day", with new alleged victims coming forward since the charges against him were made public. Filings from the late 1990s in OH show both Wexner and Epstein listed as presidents of the New Albany Company.
Prosecutors said they were "made aware" on Monday that Epstein's safe contained cash, diamonds and an expired passport.
In a written submission to District Judge Richard M Berman, prosecutors revealed new information about their investigation and why they perceive Epstein as risky.
As part of the non-prosecution agreement that Epstein agreed to in 2008, he served 13 months of minimum security jail time in exchange for pleading guilty to two Florida state prostitution charges.
Epstein, who has pleaded not guilty, has asked to be allowed to live under house arrest with armed guard at his expense in his mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side, which is valued at $US77 million.
"I was 16 years old when I had the misfortune of meeting Jeffrey Epstein in New York", Farmer said. At least one of them is among the accusers.
In addition to the charges in the indictment, prosecutors are also reviewing dozens of electronic files seized during the raid on Epstein's NY residence, saying they have found even more photos than the trove of pictures of nude and seminude young women and girls they had reported prior to a court hearing a week ago. "A spotless 14-year record of walking the straight and narrow, complemented by an exemplary 10-year history of diligent sex offender registration and reporting, is compelling proof he was able, once the prior investigation commenced, to conform his conduct to the law's dictates", the attorneys wrote.
She said Epstein, 66, should remain behind bars "just for the safety of any of the girls out there who are going through what I went through".
Few details about Epstein's wealth are known.
"If he's continuing to engage with pornography of young women, I would say that would be quite the opposite of disciplining", she said.
