Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claimed Jeffrey Epstein trafficked her to sleep with Prince Andrew, seemed to lose hope if the Duke of York would ever face jail time.
Giuffre doubted if Prince Andrew would face any consequences of his wrongdoing. Queen Elizabeth II’s son remained to be in the United Kingdom and, reportedly, yet to cooperate with American investigators.
Giuffre burst out on distress
Giuffre earlier claimed Prince Andrew slept with her on three separate occasions, including the one when she was only 17 – a minor in the United States law.
In a tweet, she seemed to burst out that she had yet to receive the justice that she wanted.
“All the evidence you could poke a stick out and yet the justice system defends a known predator who just happens to be a prince,” she said. “Anyone else would be thrown into jail.”
She went on to say Sarah Ferguson’s former husband knew she had no choice at the time.
“He knew I was being trafficked- gifted to him. Nothing’s all right. Running out of hope,” she continued.

A woman who claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew says she is "running out of hope" that he will be punished. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was trafficked by financier Jeffrey Epstein, alleges Prince Andrew had sex with her on three separate occasions – including when she was 17, still a minor under US law. She wrote: "All the evidence you could poke a stick out and yet the justice system defends a known predator who just happens to be a prince, anyone else would be thrown into jail. "He knew I had no choice- he knew I was being trafficked- gifted to him. Nothings all right. Running out of hope."

The plan to investigate Prince Andrew
According to Mirror Online, Giuffre earlier claimed she was hoping Prince Andrew would be in a cell “next to his best mate,” Ghislaine Maxwell.
Her comments came after the Metropolitan Police chief offered to help the U.S. authorities to investigate Epstein.
Dame Cressida Dick said that although the FBI probe’s focus was in the U.S., the Met would be glad to assist foreign authorities if needed.
They could help in to investigate Prince Andrew’s ties to the late convicted sex offender and his accomplice, Maxwell.
States prosecutors claimed their requests to interview the 60-year-old royal was blocked. There were even allegations that he provided “zero cooperation” to the investigation.
Prince Andrew’s legal counsel denied the accusation, saying they repeatedly offered assistance but had been ignored instead.
He, alternatively, vehemently denied having any form of relationship with Giuffre.
Prince Andrew’s possible return to royal duties
Prince Andrew stepped down from his royal roles amid the scandal of his association with Epstein in November last year.
However, royal author Nigel Cawthorne told Express he might return to his public role in the future. If it happens, his working condition might not be different from what he used to experience in the past.
“It is pretty much an open and shut case that such freedom will never come back again for him,” he said. “If the Epstein affair blows over … it is possible that he may be allowed to return and take up work for the Firm.”
But with all the negative attention Prince Andrew had attracted, his royal role would be a “pale shadow of what he was accustomed to.”
