Fox News contributor Lawrence Jones III incorrectly blamed former President Barack Obama on Tuesday for the lenient plea deal that registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein received in 2008.

Epstein, who was charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy Monday, previously got the plea agreement after pleading guilty to two state-level prostitution solicitation charges back in 2008. Current Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, the former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, was instrumental in Epstein’s plea deal, which had Epstein serve 13 months in a county jail, pay restitution to certain victims, and register as a sex offender.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Well, I don’t think people are taking a total look at this. Because there’s a lot of things that go into these decisions. A: when it’s someone like this involved, this does not skip Washington. That means that AG knew about it, that means the investigative agency, the FBI, Bob Mueller, —” Jones said before being cut off.

Epstein’s plea deal was decided during the Bush administration. Obama was inaugurated in January, 2009.
