As noted it's hard to keep the timeline straight here so to speak, but the statement from Geoffrey Berman, the Attorney General for the Southern District of New York where he says:

“Jeffrey Epstein entered into a non-prosecution agreement with the Southern District of Florida, that agreement only binds, by its terms, only binds the Southern District of Florida. The Southern District of New York is not bound by that agreement and is not a signatory to that agreement.”

... leads me to believe these are the same crimes, but a different jurisdiction moving forward with him. Epstein made a deal with Florida, not New York.

But this case is already shaping up to be an absolute nightmare quagmire of jurisdictions, timeframes, plea deals so... *shrugs* who the hell knows. I doubt even if the indictment is ever fully unsealed we'll get a full grasp on it.
