Epstein sex crime victim Virginia Giuffre has reached an undisclosed settlement in her sex abuse suit against Prince Andrew and will dismiss the case brought in Manhattan federal court.
Giuffre claimed in a lawsuit she filed on August 9, 2021, that Andrew, sexually abused her when she was under 18 at Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion in Manhattan and on his private island, Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
According to a legal document, Andrew has agreed to make a “substantial donation” to a charity, and has accepted that Guiffe “suffered as an established victim of abuse”.
Andrew also acknowledged that he regretted his association with Epstein and acknowledged his sex crimes.
In an unsigned letter submitted as an attachment to the settlement filing, Andrew also acknowledged that Giuffre has suffered from Epstein’s sex trafficking ring and lauded her bravery.
“Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms. Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks,” said the letter.
Giuffre and Prince Andrew are expected to file a stipulation to dismiss the case within the next month.
