Though Jeffrey Epstein went to great lengths to keep his life private, one thing he couldn't keep under wraps was his expensive real-estate portfolio.

Epstein's real estate has played a major role in the ongoing sex-trafficking and sexual-abuse allegations against him. He was arrested on July 6, 2019 on suspicion of sex trafficking minors in his Manhattan and Florida homes from 2002 to 2005 . The arrest comes over a decade after Epstein pleaded guilty to solicitation of prostitution and procurement of minors for prostitution and served 13 months in prison.

The sexual abuse is said to have taken place in Epstein's homes in New York, New Mexico, the US Virgin Islands, and Paris, France .
