Jeffrey Epstein Found Injured On Floor Of Jail Cell

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Jeffrey Epstein was found injured on the floor of his jail cell, a law enforcement source told CBS News.

It's unclear what caused his injuries or whether they were self-inflicted.

Epstein was put on suicide watch as a precaution, the source said. His injuries were believed to be non-life-threatening.


The disgraced financier is being held at the Manhattan Correctional Center.

He's accused of recruiting and abusing dozens of underage girls at his $77 million New York mansion and Florida home in the early 2000s.

The 66-year-old pleaded not guilty earlier this month.

A judge denied bail, saying, "I doubt that any bail package can overcome danger to the community."
