ROMAN POLANSKI’S RAPE VICTIM IS WRITING A BOOK AND IT’S ABOUT TIME
Can’t imagine why it took so long, but the woman who was raped by the loathsome Roman Polanski in 1977 when she was 13 has signed a deal to write a book about the appalling story. Samantha Geimer has publicly “forgiven” Polanski in the past but many people are still appalled by the details of the crime. “Rosemary’s Baby” director Polanski plied an aspiring 13 year old with champagne and quaaludes and raped her at Jack Nicholson’s house. Granted, this happens in Hollywood all too often, but she was THIRTEEN. Polanski was indicted on 6 felony counts and ended up serving only 42 days in prison for “psychiatric observation.” When he was released, he feared further punishment and fled back to France. What was WRONG with the legal system in those days? Who got paid off for all this leniency? Hopefully Samantha and her lawyer, who’s collaborating with her, will point the finger of guilt where it belongs.
