Two prison guards who were on duty on the night of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein’s death have been charged with falsifying records.
They are accused of failing to check in on him every 30 minutes and fabricating log entries to show they had.
Epstein hanged himself in jail in August while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges.
The charges against the two guards are the first to arise from a criminal inquiry into his death.
Epstein had pleaded not guilty to sexually abusing dozens of girls, some as young as 14.
