(CNBC) -- A woman who claims that she was sexually abused “countless times” by the late wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein — beginning when she was just 14 years old or younger — sued the executors of Epstein’s estate in federal court Wednesday.
The woman, now in her early 30s, says in her lawsuit seeking unspecified monetary damages that she is one of several women whose claims about Epstein led to his indictment on federal charges of child sex trafficking in July by prosecutors in Manhattan. The civil complaint is at least the sixth suit to be filed against Epstein’s estate since his death in August.
Epstein, 66, died while being held without bail in a federal jail in Manhattan. Authorities said the former friend of Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, as well as with Britain’s Prince Andrew, hanged himself in his cell.
