Two federal prison staffers were arrested on Tuesday in New York and are expected to face charges related to their alleged failure to conduct regular checks on accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein before he hung himself inside his Manhattan cell.

Epstein’s sudden death triggered a shakeup at the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Attorney General William Barr ordered multiple investigations into the 66-year-old’s suicide, focusing on the operations at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan where Epstein was being held in federal custody.

Prosecutors alleged that Epstein “sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls” at his homes in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Florida, and at other locations from at least 2002 to 2005.
