Alan Dershowitz says Ghislaine Maxwell should be ‘presumed innocent’

Alan Dershowitz told The Post on Friday that Ghislaine Maxwell should be “presumed innocent” — and that the feds’ sex case against her may fall apart because of statutes of limitation.

In 2008, the Harvard University law professor helped Maxwell’s perverted pal, Jeffrey Epstein, secure a plea deal with federal prosecutors in Florida while the sexual predator was under investigation for abusing underage girls.

Dershowitz also is embroiled in a lawsuit himself against Virginia Guiffre, who claims Epstein kept her as a teenage sex slave and forced her to sleep with both Prince Andrew and Dershowitz. The lawyer and royal both have vehemently denied this.

The day after Maxwell’s bust as an alleged onetime madam for the late Epstein, Dershowitz told The Post: “Ghislaine is presumed innocent until found guilty.

“It’s not going to be so easy” to convict her,” he added.

“There’s the statute of limitations,” the lawyer said, noting that at least some of the accusations against her are several decades old.

He said she may cop to a plea to avoid trial.

“We don’t know what position she’ll take, whether or not she’ll try to make an agreement,” Dershowitzh said.

Maxwell was arrested by the FBI at her $1 million pad in Bradford, NH, on Thursday on charges she helped procure underage sex partners for Epstein.

She’s currently in custody in New Hampshire, ahead of an expected transfer to New York.

“Ghislaine should be allowed out on bail, she’s not dangerous. … Maybe subject to house detention and monitoring,” Dershowitz said.
