Famous attorney and former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz categorically denied allegations that he had sex with an underage prostitute Monday, calling the woman a "serial liar, serial prostitute."
Dershowitz—who isn't being sued—was responding to new allegations made about Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy Palm Beach financier accused of keeping underaged girls as sex slaves. Epstein was ultimately sentenced to 18 months in jail as part of a legendary plea bargain that saw him admit to one count of soliciting an underaged prostitute.
New filings in a civil action against Epstein claim the businessman forced one girl—"Jane Doe No. 3"--to sleep with Prince Andrew in a potential blackmail scheme. The woman also claims she slept with Dershowitz while she was underaged.
During a media tour Monday, Dershowitz dared the woman to speak about the allegations publicly so he could file a defamation against her and offered to waive the criminal statute of limitations.
"Remember that this woman—who I haven't identified, you have—is a prostitute. She is a liar. She has charged Bill Clinton with having sex with her on the island, when Secret Service records will obviously show he was never on the island. She claimed to meet the Queen. Buckingham records will show that isn't true," Dershowitz said. "How does a lawyer rely on the statement of a woman who is a serial perjurer, serial liar, serial prostitute, and bring charges against somebody with an unscathed reputation like me without even checking?"
"I was ... with Alan. Our daughter was there. Our friends met us for dinner. We were together the whole time," she reportedly told the television show in an interview set to air Monday.
