NEW YORK - Well-known US criminal defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz has filed a sworn statement denying he had sex with an underage girl on financier Jeffrey Epstein's private plane and island.

Dershowitz filed the statement in Florida federal court on Monday night along with a motion to intervene in a lawsuit brought against the US government by Dershowitz's accuser and other women who say Epstein sexually abused them. The women say the government's plea deal with Epstein, which allowed him to serve jail time on state charges but avoid federal prosecution, violated their rights.
