WASHINGTON (AP) — Two correctional officers responsible for guarding Jeffrey Epstein the night before he took his own life are expected to face criminal charges this week for falsifying prison records, two people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

The federal charges could come as soon as Tuesday and are the first in connection with Epstein’s death. The wealthy financier died at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York while awaiting trial on charges of sexually abusing teenage girls.

The officers on Epstein’s unit at the federal jail in New York City are suspected of failing to check on him every half-hour, as required, and of fabricating log entries to claim they had. Federal prosecutors offered the guards a plea bargain, but the AP reported Friday that the officers declined the deal.

The expected charges will be filed by federal prosecutors in Manhattan, who have been investigating Epstein’s Aug. 10 death. The people familiar with the matter insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly.

Both guards were working overtime because of staffing shortages when Epstein was found. The officers have been placed on administrative leave while the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general investigate the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death.

The city’s medical examiner ruled Epstein’s death a suicide, but that hasn’t stopped conspiracy theories. A forensic pathologist hired by Epstein’s family to observe the autopsy has said authorities could help clear things up by being more transparent.

Can we stop with this idiotic conspiracy theory about Epstein getting murdered? The obvious aspect of how this happened is that the guards were lazy and weren't concerned about religiously doing their checks.

The cameras were off, too, right? I'm a pretty staunch skeptic, but this s*** really does stink. A call for transparency and thorough explanation is hardly unjustified.

Perhaps they were just threatened really, really, really effectively?

The only thing they're being charged with is falsifying prison records, which they did in fact do.

It's prisons, there's a ton of cameras.

So out of all the people involved with this s***, the only ones who may go to jail are the guards?
