PAEDOPHILE Jeffrey Epstein sent a dozen red roses to the school desk of one of his underage victims following a massage at his Florida mansion, police documents state.
The billionaire’s former butler, who told police he ordered the flowers for the teen, also claimed he was ordered to wipe down the pervert’s sex toys following visits from young girls.
Earlier this month, Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty to child sex trafficking charges in New York and could face 45 years in prison if convicted.
But shocking new details have emerged from police in Florida where the sick banker has a sprawling mansion, the Mirror reports.
A probable cause affidavit compiled by Palm Beach detectives includes sworn statements from several of Epstein’s former employees.
Alfredo Rodriguez, who worked as a butler and chauffeur for the hedge fund magnate, told police that he ordered roses for a 16-year-old and also hired a car for the school girl.
The affidavit states: “He (Rodriguez) stated one time under Epstein’s direction, he delivered a dozen roses to Royal Palm Beach High School for one of the girls that provide a massage.”
Epstein, who was jailed in Florida in 2008 for child sex trafficking, was aged 52 at the time Mr Rodriguez alleged the abuse took place in 2005.
FLOWERS FOR HIS VICTIM
Investigators in the Sunshine State began probing the wealthy paedo, who was friends with powerful celebs such as Donald Trump and Prince Andrew, after a mother complained that her daughter had been molested at his Palm Beech property.
The butler, who has since died, called Epstein human ATM machine” claiming he was told to keep at least $2,000 at all times in order to pay the underage girls.
He told police that he would regularly clean the billionaire’s sex toys following the visits from the teenagers.
Mr Rodriguez claimed he provided the girls with gifts such as iPods and jewellery.
He said he provided iPods, jewellery and other gifts to the girls.He said the teens appeared “too young to be masseuses,” while adding that they ate childish meals such as sugary breakfast cereal.

The police documents states that the young victims were taunted by classmates at school who branded them “prostitutes” because of their association with Epstein.
According to the affidavit, a school staff member broke up a fight between two girls and found that one of them had $300 in her purse.
Police have released interview footage from their probe in Epstein in 2005 showing his teen victims giving evidence, reports the Mail Online.
In the clip, one 16-year-old girl is heard saying the banker offered her $200 to recruit more school kids.
She told police: “Every girl that meets Jeffrey starts off with giving him a massage.
BUTLER ‘CLEANED SEX TOYS’
“The more you do with him, the more you make.
“Basically, if you take off your clothes you’re going to make more. If you let him do things to you, you’re going to make more.”
Epstein has been locked up in the Manhattan jail ahead of a trial for charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls.
He is accused of “sexually exploiting and abusing dozens of minor girls” at his homes in various locations.
Documents claim Epstein would pay girls “hundreds of dollars” to perform sex acts with him and would also pay certain victims “to recruit additional girls to be similarly abused.”

Epstein was also arrested on similar charges in 2008 but managed to obtain a lenient “sweetheart” plea deal in which he only served 13 months in jail.
According to reports last week, Epstein was found “sprawled on the floor” and “blue in the face” in a New York jail.
Investigators are still probing whether it was a suicide attempt or if the shamed 66-year-old was attacked.
