State to investigate Palm Beach County sheriff’s handling of Jeffrey Epstein case

About 3½ months into his sentence, Epstein was allowed to spend up to 72 hours a week, working out of a downtown West Palm Beach office. Deputy reports show he also was able to visit his Palm Beach mansion, despite restrictions on home visits. In reports, deputies referred to Epstein as the “client” and noted he was “very happy with the service” he was being provided.
