LOS ANGELES (AP) - The woman who was the teenage victim in the Roman Polanski sex case says he is not a threat to anyone and charges should be dismissed.
Samantha Geimer, who long ago identified herself, told the Los Angeles Times in a story posted Tuesday that the case should have been resolved 33 years ago when it happened.
“Enough is enough,” she said of the continuing efforts to prosecute Polanski. She was barred from talking about her civil suit settlement with the director but said it didn’t influence her views. “I’ve felt this way from the beginning.”
Polanski pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with her in a plea bargain that has been the subject of controversy. Swiss authorities refused to extradite the Oscar-winning director to the United States on Monday.
