NEW YORK, USA - [British] Virgin Islands (VI) belonger and psychiatrist Henry G. Jarecki, through his lawyer on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, said he had a “consensual, non-secretive and mutually respectful relationship” with a victim of Jeffrey E. Epstein. The victim has filed a lawsuit against Jarecki with explosive allegations that he raped and sex trafficked her.

Mr Jarecki, 91, who owns both Guana Island and Norman Island in the Virgin Islands, said the consensual relationship with the woman occurred more than a decade ago.

The woman identified as Jane Doe 11 was one of a group of women who received compensation from a fund set up for victims of the convicted sex offender Epstein.

That complaint accused Jarecki of “coercing her into being his modern-day sex slave” after the wealthy money manager Epstein sent her to his “close” friend Jarecki to treat her for depression she said was a result of Epstein’s sexual abuse.

The suit alleges that Jarecki was Epstein’s “go-to doctor” for his sexual abuse victims. And it says Jarecki, then around 80 years old, raped the accuser during her first visit with him.

False Accusations - Jarecki

In his statement Wednesday responding to the suit, Jarecki via his lawyer Sarita Kedia said, “False accusations have been made against me by lawyers seeking money on behalf of a woman with whom I had a consensual, non-secretive, and mutually respectful relationship over a decade ago, when she was a successful professional in her late 20s.”

“I have never engaged in any abusive conduct with her or anyone else,” the statement added, “I will contest these demonstrably untrue claims in the appropriate forum."

Brad Edwards, a lawyer representing the accuser, in correspondence to CNBC wrote, “A ‘consensual’ relationship to describe a patient 60 years his junior, referred by Jeffrey Epstein, and known to be a sexual abuse victim, is a creative ‘defense,’ if nothing else.”

The lawsuit against Jarecki alleges he repeatedly raped the accuser starting in 2011 through December 2014, and ultimately forced her to have sex with other men while he watched.

The suit is seeking unspecified monetary damages for sexual battery, sex trafficking, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Following the explosive allegations on June 3, a lawyer for Jarecki said, "The allegations will be shown to be entirely false and baseless. Dr Jarecki never engaged in any abusive conduct with the complainant or any other person."

    These ladies enjoy all the benefits and fun being around and mingling with Rich and Powerful men...As they got older lise their appeal and become broke and irrelevant. Then they remember they were raped some 10 - 15 yrs ago. Nonsense..I wonder if there is no way in the law for these men to counter sue these ladies for Character damages

    Some women them women blame men for their life failures so when it comes to a man they are happy to form to suggest or imply a guilty bla bla bla. They are not rational. It's not fair for a woman to accuse a man for rape 6,7,8,9,10 yrs after. I supporta limitation of 3yrs. After that it's a dead case...A convenient memory after 1,2,3 yrs, is a little more credible than after 8,9,10 plus yrs.

    Trying to make sense of the story line. So an alleged abused victim on one island was allegedly sent to a psychiatrist on another when the professional relationship turned into a non-professional relationship on the basis that it was consensual. Well, what is the definition of consensual considering all circumstances and all powers at play, one might ask.

    Some of these women put themselves in these positions with wealthy men to enjoy what they can get and then cry rape when they no longer have the lavish lifestyle. What do you think is going to happen when you get involved/spend time with these men? I doubt that they will just sit around and look at you. Wake up women! If you agree to be with them you set yourself for whatever comes. Don't cry rape if you put yourself in the position for it to happen.

      Victim blaming is a harmful attitude that places responsibility for the crime on the victim rather than the perpetrator. It implies that the victim's actions or behavior somehow justify or invite the crime, which is fundamentally flawed and unfair. In cases of sexual assault, this mindset can be particularly damaging, as it not only undermines the victim's experience but also perpetuates a culture of silence and stigma around reporting such crimes.

      It's important to understand that consent is a clear and mutual agreement to engage in a specific activity. A consensual relationship, whether romantic or otherwise, does not grant blanket permission for any and all sexual activities at any time. Each encounter requires its own explicit consent. Just because someone agrees to spend time with a person, regardless of their wealth or status, does not mean they are consenting to sexual activity.

      To clarify, here are some key points:

      Consent is ongoing and specific: Consenting to dinner, a date, or even a relationship does not mean consenting to sex. Each sexual encounter requires its own explicit agreement.

      Power dynamics and coercion: In relationships where there is a significant power imbalance, such as those involving wealth or status, coercion can play a role. This can make it difficult for the less powerful person to freely give or withhold consent.

      Right to withdraw consent: Consent can be withdrawn at any time. Even if someone initially consents to an activity, they have the right to change their mind at any point.

      Blame lies with the perpetrator: The responsibility for sexual assault lies solely with the perpetrator. Suggesting that victims "put themselves in these positions" wrongly shifts the blame away from the person who committed the crime.

      Impact of victim blaming: Victim blaming discourages survivors from coming forward and seeking justice. It fosters a culture of silence and shame, making it harder for other victims to report assaults.

      In essence, every individual has the right to make choices about their body and sexual activities without fear of being assaulted or blamed for someone else's criminal actions. No one "asks for" or "deserves" to be sexually assaulted, regardless of their circumstances or relationships. It is crucial to support survivors and hold perpetrators accountable to foster a safer and more just society.

    It was not ethical b/c she was his patient but I think she was well aware what he wanted and she choose to give it to him b/c it fit her agenda at the time. Now that men are being attacked for being men, I think she saw an opportunity for $$$ like lots of the others. A 80 y/o man can't hold down and rape a youthful 20 y/o woman. She wants a $$ grab but also this fellow is no saint so let's see if others come out and say something.

    Whilst any sexual abuse is a terrible crime and should be punished fully and properly...surely there shod be a time limit for victims to come forward with their case... evidence surely diminishes the longer it is left unreported and ends up into a he said she said situation the longer something like this is left unreported.
    Please understand that I strongly agree that victims should be protected and perpetrators brought to justice but someone has to ask just why would someone leave it for so long before reporting it.. days / weeks / months I understand...but years has me scratching my head.

    These dirty old men preying on vulnerable women that clearly had issues. At what point did it get from being the Psychiatrist who was supposed to be helping this young lady get to sleeping with her and trafficking her, even if it was consensual.That should be a line you shouldn’t cross.Being aligned with Epstein you should expect anything. A decade ago he was in his 80’s. Where is the respect for your patients and most of all your wife and family. These men dangle their money in front of these less fortunate women. I am betting that he is also friends with Trump….

    the suspicious activity occurred in this Region but will there be any investigation or is it because we talking Private Island what happened is above the Laws of this Territory.

    What kind of doctor has a “relationship” with a sexually abused woman of his colleague who came under the premise of being a patient? I’m sure a man of his caliber could have found someone who wasn’t broken and unstable because of abuse. A man of his wealth can choose from any spectrum of woman he desires but he wants the one Epstein sends for help? Yall buying this bs? Come on… we see men and women like him here in the bvi who do what they want and as they please because money has bought them out of every kind of trouble they could get into. These people have no self-control and love to have their way by any means necessary.

    Oh Henry, looks like you put a spoke in your own wheel right there. If in fact the young lady was referred to you in your capacity as a psychiatrist, that would mean she came to you in a vulnerable state. It will certainly be interesting then to hear how and when you ended up in a "consensual" relationship with her.
