In a book that could be published until the end of 2015 Virginia Roberts plans to tell how Jeffrey Epstein, a U.S. billionaire, supposedly forced her to have sex with business executives, numerous American politicians, foreign presidents and even His Royal Highness, Prince Andrew. From 1999 to 2002 Prince Andrew was allegedly involved in sex crimes with underage minors. Virginia Roberts also claims that she was implicated in two orgies with underage girls and Prince Andrew.
She states that she was paid $15,000 for one of the encounters. The explosive allegations begin according to a timeline when Virginia Roberts was 15 years old and she was introduced to Epstein. She was then apparently employed as Epstein’s “sex slave” for several years. In this time she allegedly serviced wealthy friends of Jeffrey Epstein around the world. She met and was photographed with Prince Andrew in 2001. On the same evening she was allegedly forced to sleep with the prince.
Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson said that “The York family is a tight unit. We’ve always been a tight unit,” “He is the greatest man there is. It was the finest moment of my life in 1986 when I married him. He is a great man, the best in the world.” The Buckingham Palace released a statement Monday and said that “It is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts. Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation”.
Alan Dershowitz, a prominent criminal defense attorney, was also named in a federal lawsuit. Claims filed in federal court state that he had sex with an underage girl in a sex ring run by investment banker Jeffrey Epstein. Both Dershowitz, a Harvard University professor emeritus, and Britain’s Prince Andrew repeatedly denied the allegations.
Epstein pleaded guilty to solicitation of prostitution in 2007. He began serving behind bars an 18-month sentence in 2008 and he served 13 months. Although Epstein was the subject of a federal investigation, a deal allowed him to plead guilty to a lesser state charge. This allowed him to avoid a potential federal case. Prince Andrew has been photographed with Epstein in several occasions. For his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein the prince issued an apology.
