Here's a head-scratching twist to the Roman Polanski teen sex case!
The then 13-year old victim, Samantha Geimer, has filed a request for the LA courts to drop its case against the director.
According to paperwork filed, it's in the interest of "saving her from further trauma as the case is publicized anew".
She also goes on to say that the decision for Polanski to plead guilty to a single count of unlawful sexual intercourse was intended to save her from a trial which would have drawn worldwide attention.
Geimer claims she's "survived" against whatever harm Polanski may have caused and that she now believes Polanski fled "because the judicial system did not work."
This is the third time she's asked for the case to be dismissed - letters calling for the same were submitted to LA authorities in 1995 and 1997.
But, she was OK with (and attended the premiere of) the documentary that examined the case closely released by HBO?
The LA district attorney's office had no comment.
