Enraged Super-Lawyer Alan Dershowitz Blasts Claims He Forced Underage Girl To Have Sex
Famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz is firing back at allegations from a woman who says he forced her to have sex with him when she was underage. Today, Dershowitz speaks to INSIDE EDITION.
Angry super-lawyer Alan Dershowitz is blasting claims from a woman who says she was forced to have sex with him when she was just 17 years old.
Dershowitz told INSIDE EDITION, "She is a complete and total stranger who has made a complete and total fabrication. She's a serial liar, a pathalogical liar."
INSIDE EDITION's Steven Fabian spoke to the former Harvard law professor's wife of 30 years, Carolyn.
"Anyone that knows us would find it laughable, if it weren't so serious. He is the least likely person in the entire world that this would be true of," said Carolyn.
Dershowitz is perhaps the nation's best known lawyer. Among his clients: O.J. Simpson. He has often appeared on INSIDE EDITION and other TV shows.
In shocking court papers, Virginia Roberts, identified only as Jane Doe #3 says she was "required...to have sexual relations with Dershowitz on numerous occasions while she was a minor, not only in Florida but also on private planes, in New York, New Mexico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands."
Fabian asked Carolyn, "Have you met this woman who's making these allegations? Have you had any interactions with her? Have you ever even spoken to her?"
"She's totally unfamiliar to me. I was on that island with Alan. Our daughter was there. Our friends met us for dinner. We were together the whole time," replied Carolyn.
At the time, Roberts worked as a masseuse for disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who in 2008 pled guilty to soliciting an underage girl for prostitution.
Fabian asked Alan, "Describe what your relationship was with Jeffrey Epstein."
Dershowitz replied, "I was his lawyer and made the deal. If you don't like the deal, hey, I plead guilty to making a deal that was favorable to my client. That's my job. But to then accuse me of improper conduct like this because they don't like the deal is the sleaziest, most underhanded and unethical thing I've ever seen a lawyer do."
Virginia Roberts, now 30, also claims she was forced to have sex with England's Prince Andrew. The allegations are making international headlines. The former husband of Sarah Ferguson flew home early from a ski vacation to deal with the controversy.
Buckingham Palace called the allegations "false and without any foundation."
But Virginia Roberts responds, "These types of aggressive attacks on me are exactly the reason why sexual abuse victims typically remain silent and the reason why I did for a long time."
Dershowitz added, "I was never in the same place with her. I never shook hands with her. I never touched her. I never had any contact with her. Boy, did they pick on the wrong person. They picked on the wrong innocent person this time."
