    Audience 72 says:

    Well, he’s in the hot seat now. Let’s see if the sweating claim is true

    Good man says:

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Milagros Guerrero more says:

    they thought he was going to get away with it. No matter how royal he is and his status, he must pay for what he has done.

    cyberash3000 says:

    @Kay its fun watching americans get so bent out of shape about it

    James Alexander says:

    @cyberash3000 anyone can get touched, including your boy Andy.

    cyberash3000 says:

    @James Alexander actually only financially as the uk police have announced there will be NO criminal charges, and your statute of limitations, so sorry 🙂

    cyberash3000 says:

    @James Alexander but its ok. justice has been served correctly by that 😀

    cyberash3000 says:

    @James Alexander sorry to disappoint you. you are goign to be in for a LOT of disappointment if you think prince andrew is goign to prison on a civil case. you are also in for a surprise when you see epstein only had to pay 500k to the girl, pocket change, and he was the main man 😀 prepare to be dissapointed, as disappointed as you lot where when the uk police and courts decided that there would be no investigation or court case 🙂

    Person of No Color says:

    Tsk tsk. Andrew is certainly no “prince”. They should toss the confidential clause and go after ALL the abusers.

    EagleEye says:

    Sadly that won’t happen. But wouldn’t it be fantastic.

    TheKujonPT says:

    Prince Andrew is a perfect English gentleman and would not have forced his attentions on Guiffre. He was dating Amanda Staveley, when he was about 40 yrs and she was 28 years old. Lady Victoria Hervey was that time 24 years old. Andrew’s name has never previously been linked with underaged girls and it is clear that he is not a paedophile. Both women are beautiful and sophisticated, so hardly a man that likes them changes to somebody being paid.

    Person of No Color says:

    @TheKujonPT Nice try but no. If Andrew was a decent man he would have never become friends with Epstein. Not buying your argument. You even stated have he went to young than a younger woman. He was slowly falling into the abyss of abusing younger women and to girls. Sad actually. Bad influences around him but he’s an adult and a father. I can imagine how terrible this is for his kids.

    Anonymous says:

    @TheKujonPT cool two more names for the world to check into.

    Christine says:

    Two more virgins 😂

    Karen Robertson says:

    Everyone involved must be brought to justice!!

    Emerald eyes says:

    Glad there’s a decent judge that hasn’t been bought, in America no one is above the law and its about time Prince Andrew was made accountable, if he’s innocent what has he got to hide now he’ll have the opportunity to prove his innocents. I hope no out of court settlement is accepted.

    Jim H says:

    @Magdalena Calderon Yep. Similar to female teachers having relationships with their male, and now female students. And gay Catholic priests and Boy Scout leaders preying on their flock.
    In a spiritually, sexually, socially and educationally degenerate society, it’s common.

    Jim H says:

    Karen, you know how Fidel Castro really came to power in Cuba?
    In the 1920’s and 30’s, Cuba, and it’s Washington supported military dictator Batista, was basically a giant bunny ranch for Washington politicians and the western elite.
    And Cubans were sick and tired of their teenage daughters being auctioned off to the highest bidder.

    Smoking Joe says:

    @Jim H Castro said you ain’t coming down here and buy our daughters for the price of a plate of beans. Like those hurricane workers going down there to the Caribbeans. Trading food for kids.

    Smoking Joe says:

    The girls were willing. They were paid in gifts, no one was tied up, kidnapped, raped, or exploited, like in Cuba . They wanted to party. Just like you, when you were that age. The drinking age was 18 in those days. 15 year olds at keggers were common.

    William Gibb says:

    Whether this survives a court case is unknown. However , Judgement Day is NEVER ignored.

    The 145 Club says:

    Hopefully the young lady is not just in it for the money and will insist on a public trail, so many more engaged in this ring of criminal behavior will be exposed, shamed and convicted🤞🤞

    Beaulieu onnp says:

    She has lot of money already

    Sheila Keenan says:

    She cannot get to him criminally. He is not an American citizen.

    frank bennett says:

    this is a civil case ,which means it is about money..she settled to low with Epstein and now needs more money or a book deal

    Elizabeth Pacura says:

    Justice for the victims , accountability for the rich!

    sinhen li says:

    Ugh get evidence first . 🙄

    Coffee says:

    @sinhen li Evidence? She will describe his meat and two veg to the world. Her lawyer has claimed that “girls” were trafficked to Andrew – which probably means they will come forward after this case. Pretty sure he wasn’t on Lolita Express to Lolita Island for business meetings.

    Coffee says:

    Well done, that judge!

    Emperial says:

    Seriously? Or is this satire

    Ella 72 says:

    Unfortunately I don’t think he is going to jail even if he is found guilty!

    David says:

    Because its a civil case..

    open every door says:

    Yes but they can arrest him now because he will be in America and subject to US law.

    anthony says:

    He is named and shamed! that’s what he has to live with for the rest of his life.

    Ella 72 says:

    @anthony That wouldn’t be good enough for me! He is getting off easy if what everyone in the comments section in response to my comment is true!

    Randy's Crafts says:

    If he’s found guilty in this civil case he’ll have a criminal case on him shortly after.

    frank bennett says:

    it is easier to prove a civil case then a criminal case

    Pamela Lagerquist says:

    This is a civil case? Isn’t what he did his “activities” to young girls, against the law? It would be for anyone else.

    The Owl says:

    This a civil case. No prison, but has to pay damages between 10 to 30 million dollars. If he decide to fight it, he has to give testimony and pay his attorney’s fees. And if he loses the case, he has to pay the attorney fees for both sides, and pay damages between 10 to 30 million.!!! So, it is better for him to settle out of court.

    Jim H says:

    If you pay these women for their lack of judgment, can it be reasonably expected that others will seek to repeat the behavior in search of a big pay day?

    The Owl says:

    @Jim H Do you expect good judgement from 17 year old or younger..???..You forget that most of them came from poor background, without proper upbringing, and often desperate for money and attention. That’s how they became easy victims for the likes of Epstein.

    obsolete professor says:

    Civil have different rules over admissable evidence. Remember the O.J. trial? Not guilty criminally, but the family snagged him civil.

    Patricia Mc Intosh says:

    Great going! Justice is being served 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

    Jim H says:

    Someone will be paid.
    But justice is certainly not being served.

    YinYan80 says:

    THIS STORY MUST BE HEARD. ANDREW NEEDS TO BE REVEALED

    Echos Paw says:

    This is a step in the right direction. I remember one of the girls describing encounters with him. “he was really hairy, and sweated a lot on me…”. That poor girl. Those poor girls caught up in that widespread underage sex ring. And probably a few boys, too, I would bet.

    Monica Sanders says:

    Just because he comes from royalty doesn’t mean he should be excluded. He should be beheld accountable like the others❗

    RD M says:

    Andrew’s poll numbers are even saying he’s into teens. 🙄

    Tony Aquino says:

    I hope emancipation is on the horizons for victims that have spoken in this case. We should all pay our dues. No matter who you think you are!

    Frank Lopez says:

    I believe all the victims and justice must be served, regardless of class or fame or wealth.
