(BBC.com)—A US lawyer alleged to have had sex with a minor has denied the claims – and said allegations against Prince Andrew must also be “presumed” false.

Alan Dershowitz said the woman making the claims “should not be believed”.

He and the Duke of York were named in documents filed in a Florida court over how prosecutors handled a case against financier Jeffrey Epstein.

The woman alleges she was forced by Epstein to have sex with Prince Andrew – claims denied by Buckingham Palace.

She says it happened when she was under age, and on three occasions – in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island owned by Epstein – between 1999 and 2002.
