The guards agreed to provide “truthful information related to their employment by the Bureau of Prisons, including about the events and circumstances described in the Indictment,” according to a letter from federal prosecutors that was filed in court papers.
The guards had to complete 100 hours of community service and cooperate with a Department of Justice Inspector General review, authorities said in May.
CNN has reached out to the attorneys for Noel and Thomas but did not immediately hear back.
Epstein was awaiting trial at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, having pleaded not guilty to federal charges accusing him of operating a sex trafficking ring from 2002 to 2005 at his Manhattan mansion and his Palm Beach estate, and allegedly paying girls as young as 14 for sex.
He was found dead in his cell on August 10, 2019. A medical examiner ruled it was suicide by hanging.
Noel and Thomas were working as guards that night. According to the initial indictment in the case, the guards repeatedly failed to complete the required counts of prisoners on their watch in the specialized housing unit where he was being held.
According to the initial indictment, the two signed false certifications saying they had performed their duties.
The night Epstein died, no officer completed any count or round in the unit between 10:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m., at which time Noel and Thomas discovered Epstein’s body, the indictment said.
The decision comes as Epstein’s life has received fresh scrutiny in the aftermath of the prosecution of his longtime girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell for sex trafficking charges.
