the last book I ever read (Julie K. Brown's Perversion of Justice: The Jeffery Epstein Story, excerpt ten)

from Perversion of Justice: The Jeffery Epstein Story by Julie K. Brown:

Contrary to what Belohlavek told the judge, neither the girl at the heart of the state plea deal nor her lawyer were ever told about the deal.

All along, everyone had assumed that the victim who testified before the state grand jury—the only victim to testify, Jane Doe 1—was the girl who was the victim in the plea. Her lawyer, Spencer Kuvin, happened to hear about Epstein being in court that day and wanted to serve him with her civil lawsuit, so he appeared at the hearing.

Kuvin said he, too, assumed that at least one of the victims mentioned at the hearing was his client. In truth, Epstein’s lawyers had somehow convinced state prosecutors to switch the victims. No one would learned about this until years later.
