MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WPIX) -- One of Jeffrey Epstein's accusers urged other women Tuesday to come forward with allegations against the wealthy financier as federal authorities prosecute him on sex charges.
Other new information emerged as well on Tuesday, including evidence that could affect a national election.
Accuser Courtney Wild told reporters at a news conference here that Epstein "will never stop sexually abusing children until he is in jail."
"This is no surprise that he was also abusing victims in New York," Wild said, adding, "as long as the victims speak up, he isn't going to get away this time."
She encouraged others who believe they've been abused by the 66-year-old financier and convicted juvenile sex offender to contact the FBI, or her attorney, with their stories.
"We will not get justice until you speak out," Wild said. "You are not alone, and this was not your fault."
Wild's remarks came a day after she appeared in Manhattan federal court and urged a judge to deny Epstein bail. She said Epstein started sexually abusing her when she was 14 in Palm Beach, Florida.
Epstein was convicted in 2008 in Florida on soliciting prostitution from girls as young as 14. In a plea agreement that reduced both the potential charges against him, as well as his sentence, he ended up being in a county jail for 13 months, and was allowed to be at his office, rather than behind bars, for 12 hours a day, six days a week.
During that time, according to Brad Edwards, the attorney who represents Wild and other alleged survivors of Epstein's sexual assaults, the man accused by prosecutors of operating a sex ring made up of teen girls, some of whom were below legal age, "was having office visitors," Edwards said.
