Alan Dershowitz’s Accuser Swears By Her Story Of Sexual Misconduct

The woman who accused Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz of having sexual relations with her while she was a minor has filed a declaration in federal court in the Southern District of Florida this week.  In her declaration, she affirms her earlier allegations and fills in a few more details about her alleged encounters with Dershowitz.  The woman is believed to be Virginia Roberts, based on her self-disclosure to media sources.

Dershowitz has vigorously defended himself against the allegations since they appeared in a December 30 motion to join additional plaintiffs to an ongoing Crime Victims' Rights Act suit against the United States.  Virginia Roberts, identified in the motion as Jane Doe #3, is one of the women asking to join the suit.  The plaintiffs in the CVRA suit claim that federal prosecutors violated the plaintiffs' rights by secretly negotiating a sweetheart plea deal with billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.  On January 5, Dershowitz filed a declaration with the court, disputing the charges of sexual wrongdoing.
