Convicted pedophile and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime lawyer who grew up in Glen Cove is reportedly scheduled to be questioned under oath about his late boss’s crimes next month.

Darren Indyke, who was Epstein’s attorney for two decades and was named co-executor of his estate, will be deposed June 22 as a witness in a lawsuit filed by Epstein’s victims, according to the New York Daily News.

“The attorneys will look to grill Indyke about his possible role helping Epstein maintain his super-villain lifestyle,” the newspaper reported Monday. “The deposition will likely lead to thorny conflict of interest questions about Indyke’s status as executor of Epstein’s $634 million estate and possible witness to alleged crimes committed by the financier.”

Authorities have said the 66-year-old registered sex offender who allegedly sex trafficked and abused dozens of girls who were minors over the years, died by apparent suicide Aug. 10. in his Manhattan federal jail cell following an earlier attempted suicide. The FBI and U.S. Department of Justice’s inspector general are investigating the wealthy financier’s death. Epstein’s many high-powered friends over the years have included President Donald Trump, former President Bill Clinton, and Prince Andrew.

Indyke isn’t the only LI connection to the Epstein case. Chef Adam Perry Lang, who was raised in Roslyn, was a private chef for Epstein 20 years ago, but said he was unaware of any of Epstein’s crimes. And Garden City-based criminal defense attorney Bruce Barket represents Epstein’s former cell mate, Nicholas Tartaglione, an ex-cop accused of a quadruple murder and was in the cell during Epstein’s first suicide attempt.
