Jeffrey Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty in his first court appearance following his arrest. He will remain in jail at least until his July 15 bail hearing.

Prosecutors argue Epstein, a registered sex offender, is a significant flight risk. They want him jailed until trial.

Epstein is accused of creating and maintaining a network that allowed him to sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls from 2002 to 2005.

Epstein's lawyers argued the matter had been settled in a Florida case involving similar charges a decade ago.
