The indictment also resurfaced the 2008 plea deal and Acosta's role in it.
He was arrested on Saturday and in some cases is alleged to have paid his victims to recruit other underage girls for him to abuse. "Were the victims prostitutes?"
However, Acosta acknowledged the new sex-crimes charges against Epstein could "more fully bring him to justice".
"We think he's a significant flight risk", Berman told a news conference.
The Daily Beast reporter, Vicky Ward, wrote a profile of Epstein in 2003 for Vanity Fair but said later that her editor deleted numerous most salacious details in her story despite victims' willingness to go on the record.
Over the past week, women have continued to step forward with accusations against Epstein.
Republican members of Congress have largely remained silent on the controversy over Acosta's past.

The deal has come under renewed scrutiny after Epstein was charged Monday with having allegedly operated a sex trafficking ring in which he allegedly sexually abused dozens of underage girls. If convicted he could be imprisoned for the rest of his life. Acosta previously served as US attorney in Miami, where his office identified 36 underage victims and issued a 53-page indictment against Epstein in 2007. Just five months later, Trump's attorney Marc Kasowitz made a $32,000 donation to Vance's campaign further raising speculation that Vance was doling out favors for reciprocity.
After Epstein appeared in federal court on Monday, Clinton released a statement claiming he "knows nothing about the bad crimes" Epstein is charged with or those with which he plead guilty to in Florida more than a decade ago.
In the 2008 case, Epstein pleaded guilty to procuring a person under 18 for prostitution and felony solicitation of prostitution, which required him to register as a sex offender and serve about a year in a Florida county jail.
Acosta said he would comply with any investigation.
Not only is Clinton being dishonest about the number of trips he took with Epstein, but Sarnoff claimed Clinton is lying about other details, too. At his press conference, Acosta explained that the agreement provided that Epstein would pay the legal costs of victims who sued him, and that he was concerned the case would be tainted if the witnesses against Epstein knew they could receive compensation.
Epstein was known for socializing with politicians and royalty, with friends who have included U.S. President Donald Trump, former President Bill Clinton and according to court papers, Britain's Prince Andrew.

The New York Times is also reporting that Trump and Epstein took part in parties where they were the only two male guests along with 28 women. "Epstein smirks as Trump inappropriately touches a young girl".
Clinton, through a spokesperson, said he "knows nothing about the awful crimes" Epstein is accused of, and outlined on Monday the contacts he had with Epstein. The one of Trump is from October 1993, when he was photographed with his daughter Ivanka - the girl mentioned in the Facebook post - at the grand opening of the Harley Davidson Cafe in New York City.
After once calling the disgraced financier a "terrific guy", Trump is now doubling back on his words, saying Tuesday that he's "not a fan".
