Acosta Non Prosecution Agreement
Acosta then agreed to hide the non-persecution agreement from the public and "if the United States receives a Freedom of Information Act request or a mandatory disclosure procedure," the United States will communicate to Epstein prior to disclosure. Perhaps to give Epstein enough time to refuel his private jet and travel to a country from which he cannot be extradited to the United States? The federal agreement and Epstein`s lenient treatment during the Florida state`s detention have been criticized, with the Miami Herald calling the agreement a "deal of a lifetime."  The fact that the Epstein agreement also protected "potential conspirators" from federal prosecutions has been the subject of speculation that the agreement may have been intended to protect influential people in Epstein`s orbit.  However, others have described this clause as the purpose of protecting Epstein`s victims who had been encouraged to help him recruit other victims for abuse.  The OPR investigation focused on two aspects of the Epstein case: whether prosecutors committed a fault by focusing the allegations through a non-prosecution agreement and if they did not keep the victims in line with the progress of the case. Other notable cases during his tenure include the Corruption Office of Palm Beach County Commission Chairman Tony Masilotti, Palm Beach County Commissioner Warren Newell, Palm Beach County Commissioner Mary McCarty and Broward Sheriff Ken Jenne; the conviction of Miguel and Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela, founders of the Cali cartel, for importing 200,000 kilograms of cocaine, resulting in a decadence of $2.1 billion; and the prosecution of hamilton Bank executives.  On February 21, 2019, a Federal Court decision made the front page of Acosta`s role in the Epstein case.  The decision to keep the agreement with Epstein secret until it was finalized was found to be contrary to the 2004 Crimes Rights Act (CVRA), which informs victims of the progress of federal criminal cases. The CVRA was new and relatively new at the time of Epsteiner`s non-persecution agreement.
