Four women who escaped prosecution for allegedly assisting Jeffrey Epstein solicit sex in the 2007 case he was given a sweetheart deal for have been thrust back into the spotlight by his recent arrest.
Nadia Marcinkova, Lesley Groff, Sarah Kellen and Adriana Ross were named in Epstein’s 2008 plea agreement as ‘potential co-conspirators’.
They include former employees who allegedly helped him have sex and traffic underage girls by either booking appointments for him to see them or by luring allegedly luring the victims themselves.
They include a woman who used to handle his enviable Rolodex and is now married to a Nascar driver, and a Yugoslavian model who others claim Epstein ‘bought’ from her family to be his sex slave when she was a young girl herself. She is now a globe-trotting pilot.
There is another eastern European beauty who moved from Poland to Florida and started working for Epstein in his mansion in 2002, and a former assistant who now lives quietly in Connecticut.

As part of his 2008 non-prosecution agreement with former prosecutor Alexander Acosta, Epstein secured immunity for the four women.
But with the legality of that agreement now in question (Epstein’s victims were not informed of it at the time which is a violation of the law), their futures have become uncertain.
None of the women are named in the new indictment against Epstein and prosecutors say they do not anticipate filing charges against anyone soon.
There is a reference, however, to the ’employees’ and ‘assistants’ he used to allegedly traffic three underage girls in New York and Florida.
Kellen worked for Epstein as his assistant and, according to police and the FBI from the first case, handled his contact sheet. She booked some of the ‘massages’ where he allegedly abused girls.
Since the first scandal, she has dyed her hair and married NASCAR driver Brian Vickers. She operates an interior design business which she promotes discreetly on Facebook under the name Sarah Kensington.

Kellen is now married to NASCAR driver Brian Vickers. She is an interior designer. The pair are shown in 2014
She and her husband split their time between North Carolina, Florida and New York.
Among their properties is a $6million apartment in Florida.
Marcinkova also changed her name to Nadia Marcinko after the 2008 agreement.
Victims claimed in court documents afterwards that she was brought by Epstein to live with him as a young girl from Yugoslavia and that she participated in ‘orgies’ with them at his homes.
Since the 2008 case, she has obtained a pilot’s license and she now boasts an impressive social media following under the Instagram handle ‘Fly Global Girl.’
Adriana Ross is the other eastern European assistant who allegedly helped Epstein with his scheme.
She was brought from Poland and started working for him in his Florida home, allegedly arranging some of the massages described in the indictment from 2008.
Nadia, the alleged former sex slave, is now a pilot. She operates under the name Fly Global Girl and has an impressive social media following
As part of a deposition for a civil case against Epstein in 2010, she refused to answer questions about his alleged illegal actions, repeatedly pleading the fifth when asked what she knew.
Ross was named flight manifests for Epstein’s private jet multiple times along with former president Bill Clinton.
It is unclear what she is doing now.
Lesley Groff, Epstein’s former assistant. He begged her not to go on maternity leave in 2004, giving her a Mercedes to make her commute better and offering to pay for her nanny. He called her an ‘extension of his brain’
She stared working for Epstein in 2002 but public records for where she now lives are unavailable.
Lesley Groff was one of his most trusted assistants.
In 2004, when she announced she was pregnant and tried to leave, Epstein bought her a Mercedes to make her commute more enjoyable and said he would pay for her to have a full-time nanny.
‘There is no way that I could lose Lesley to motherhood,’ he told The Chicago Tribune a year later in an article about his staff.
All three of the assistants made more than $200,000-a-year and enjoyed unlimited haircuts at a society hairdresser and all the food they consumed while working.
He said of them: ‘They are an extension of my brain. Their intuition is something that I don’t have.’
There is also Ghislaine Maxwell, his reliable sidekick who has been named as his ‘madam’ in court documents by one former ‘sex slave’.
Maxwell, the daughter of the late newspaper magnate Robert Maxwell, is yet to surface.
Despite not being paid by Epstein, she acted like a social gofer and was arranging yoga instructors for him in 2003.
Maxwell previously denied having anything to do with his alleged crimes and called one of his accusers a liar.
Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s ‘best friend’ and former girlfriend who other victims named as his ‘madam’ in court documents, has not been heard from
