A woman in New York who said she was raped by Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy financier who was charged with sex trafficking, is suing his estate, an associate and members of his staff for their alleged involvement in the scheme.
"Today I am starting to reclaim my power," Jennifer Araoz, 32, told reporters.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday comes after Epstein's apparent suicide left victims questioning how they would receive justice.
