Two correctional officers who were responsible for guarding Jeffrey Epstein in his New York jail cell have pleaded not guilty to charges they falsified records to cover up their failure to check in on him the night he killed himself. Tova Noel, 31, and Michael Thomas, 41, appeared in a Manhattan court on Tuesday afternoon where they were arraigned on charges of falsifying records and conspiracy in relation to Epstein’s death. Noel and Thomas, who had both self-surrendered for arrest to the FBI earlier in the day, were supported by around a dozen correctional officers in the courtroom.
