Jeffrey Epstein will remain behind bars after a judge denied his request for bail, an early win for prosecutors that increases the pressure on the accused child sex trafficker and his defense team.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman on Thursday turned aside Epstein’s bid to be confined to his Manhattan mansion, where he had offered to pay for armed guards and wear an ankle bracelet showing his location.
