Alan Dershowitz declared “totally, unequivocally and completely false” allegations that he enjoyed sexual services from a minor employed by a friend and client.

The former staffer for investor Jeffrey Epstein named Dershowitz in a lawsuit charging that federal prosecutors in Florida bypassed victims’ rights legislation in granting Epstein a plea deal, Politico reported on Dec. 31.

“One such powerful individual that Epstein forced then-minor Jane Doe #3 to have sexual relations with was former Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, a close friend of Epstein’s and well-known criminal defense attorney,” Politico quotes a filing as saying.

“Epstein required Jane Doe #3 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.”

Dershowitz, who helped defend Epstein, said that the allegations are false.
