PARIS — A former French modeling agent who was a close associate of the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein has been charged with rape of minors over the age of 15 and sexual harassment, the Paris prosecutor said on Saturday.

The associate, Jean-Luc Brunel, 74, is also under investigation on suspicion of human trafficking of minors for sexual exploitation, according to the Paris prosecutor, Rémi Heitz.

“He is suspected of having committed rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment on various victims, both minors and adults, and in particular of having organized the transportation and lodging for girls and young women on behalf of Jeffrey Epstein,” the prosecutor said.

Mr. Brunel’s lawyer did not respond to interview requests. In a statement in October 2019, his lawyer, Corinne Dreyfus-Schmidt, said that Mr. Brunel was available to answer questions from investigative judges and that he strongly denied the accusations of sexual abuse.
