Alan Dershowitz to Newsmax TV: Innocence Should Be Believed

Lamenting it is no longer enough to merely be clear of charges, Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV he will be vindicated of sexual misconduct allegations in the "court of public opinion," too.

"I am completely confident I will be vindicated, not only in the courts, but in the court of public opinion and by history," Dershowitz told Tuesday's "Newsmax Now" after a document release that former FBI Director Louie Freeh said "refutes the allegations against Professor Dershowitz," Newsmax reported.

Dershowitz, a famed civil liberties attorney, has vehemently denied a sexual relationship with anyone in the alleged Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking ring, adding bearing false witness was denounced by the Bible yet is still a virtue our modern society is not living up to.

"It's terrible to be falsely accused," Dershowitz told guest host John Cardillo. "It's one of the 10 Commandments, 'Thou shall not bear false witness.'"

Dershowitz has claimed the accusations against him are a result of opportunists trying to capitalize on society's sensitivities to the Me Too movement, which has led many to unilaterally believe sexual misconduct allegations, particularly when there is a female victim, in lieu of due process and the U.S. law-prescribed presumption of innocence.

"Some people out there believe sexual assault is so serious that even innocence is not a defense," Dershowitz said. "There are others who say, 'Well, if a woman said it, it must be true.'

"That's nonsense and that undercuts the presumption of innocence."
