Wexner Denies Knowledge Of Jeffrey Espstein's Alleged Crimes

Local billionaire Les Wexner issued a statement Monday saying he was never aware of the illegal activity with which his former business manager, Jeffrey Epstein, has been charged. 

The founder of New Albany-based L Brands says Epstein was involved in many aspects of his financial life but he severed all ties with Epstein nearly 12 years ago.  The statement was emailed to L Brands workers. Epstein was arrested earlier this month on charges of sexually abusing underage girls. A civil lawsuit has been filed by a woman claiming Epstein assaulted her in Wexner's home.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
