PRINCE Andrew accuser Virginia Giuffre has sensationally admitted she was wrong to claim lawyer Alan Dershowitz abused her.
The 38-year-old said that while she believes she was trafficked to Dershowitz by Epstein, she was young at the time and was in a stressful and traumatic environment.

Giuffre’s 2019 lawsuit accused Dershowitz of defaming her when he denied her claim. Dershowitz had countersued Giuffre.
And now in a statement to the New York Times, she noted that Dershowitz denied the allegations and admitted she may have made a mistake.
In a document filed by lawyers for both Giuffre and Dershowitz in federal court in Manhattan, both parties said they would agree not to sue again and waived their rights to appeal.
Mr Dershowitz praised Ms Giuffre for coming forward.
He told The Independent: “I commend her for finally coming forward and acknowledging that she may have made a mistake in identifying me because of the trauma that she went through.”
“She has suffered much at the hands of Jeffrey Epstein and I commend her work combating the evil of sex trafficking,” he said.
Giuffre has also made claims against Prince Andrew, and Ghislaine Maxwell.
She launched a legal battle against him, accusing him of sexually abusing her at Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion.
She said it was “past the time for him to be held to account” for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager.
But Prince Andrew has strenuously denied her claim he had sex with her.
That lawsuit was dismissed earlier this year after the two reached a settlement.
