Famed defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who has represented such high profile accused killers or attempted killers as O.J. Simpson and Claus von Bulow, has found himself at the center of the Jeffery Epstein underage sex trafficking case. In a police affidavit, a woman who says that she was forced to serve as a "sex slave" for Epstein, according to The New York Daily News, stated under oath that she had "sexual intercourse" with Dershowitz "at least six times" while she was in Epstein's "servitude."
A second woman also named Dershowitz as a patron of Epstein's alleged sex trafficking ring, according to the BBC. The second woman said that Dershowitz received a "massage" at Epstein's lavish Palm Beach mansion, where the prominent lawyer — who has recently become one of the most outspoken defenders of Donald Trump against special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation — was allegedly a frequent visitor.
Dershowitz has flatly denied the allegations. But recently, the former Harvard Law School professor added a bizarre new wrinkle to his story, admitting that he had, in fact, received a "massage" at Epstein's home, according to his statements in an interview with Miami's WPLG-TV. Dershowitz gave the WPLG interview in April, but the clip went viral this week on Twitter, apparently due to Dershowitz's claim that "I left my underwear on" during the massage.
