Roman Polanski Will NOT Be Extradited Back To The U.S. To Face Conviction For Rape Charge

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

no title

It looks like Roman Polanski will remain in exile.

On October 30, a court in Poland denied Roman's extradition to the United States to face conviction for the 1977 rape of a then 13-year-old model, Samantha Geimer.

For those who don't know, Polanski was convicted of six counts of sexual assault against Sam but ultimately his lawyer had the charges reduced to one. While the director spent 42 days in a California penitentiary and underwent psychiatric treatment for the crime, he fled to his native country of France after rumors spread that the presiding judge intended to take back the plea deal for more jail time.

Ever since the husband of the late Sharon Tate (the pregnant actress was murdered at the hands of the Manson family) fled the country hours before sentencing, he has faced legal battles abroad.

In 2009, R.P. was arrested in Switzerland and held for a few months upon the United State's request for extradition. Ultimately, the Chinatown filmmaker was released by Swiss authorities.

Cut to 2015 and the latest extradition request has been DENIED by a Polish court where the 82-year-old is currently living.

Citing Roman's age as a primary concern, the presiding judge added:

samantha geimer roman polanski unlawful sexual intercourse woody allen dylan farrow open letter

To say that Samantha Geimer can empathize with Dylan Farrow is an understatement.

Samantha was 13 years old when director Roman Polanski had "unlawful sexual intercourse" with her. Like Woody Allen, who is Dylan's alleged sexual molester, Roman continued to make critically acclaimed films for decades following the very public incident.

So it isn't surprising Samantha wants to share words of wisdom with Dylan, words that can hopefully help pull her through this unfathomably trying ordeal!

Which is why Samantha, who also authored The Girl: A Life in the Shadow of Roman Polanski, decided to publish an open letter for Dylan on the internet.

Samantha also spoke out for those who she feels have no voice. She revealed:

roman polanski statutory rape Samantha Geimer book The Girl: Emerging from the Shadow

Thirty-five years ago, Roman Polanski raped Samantha Geimer.

The acclaimed filmmaker was in his mid 40s when he had sex with a 13 year-old girl at Jack Nicholson's home after allegedly drugging her and getting her drunk.

Tired of living in the negative limelight of an Oscar-winning director's sex scandal, Samantha — now 47 — is releasing her memoirs entitled The Girl: Emerging from the Shadow of Roman Polanski.

We honestly aren't sure how a book about the horrible incident back in 1977 will help the world forget about it, but she

Sir Ben Kingsley Lusts For Prada…

… And Helena Bonham Carter is a vapid, little rich bitc*!

We are enthralled with Prada's latest advertisement mini-film.

This Roman Polanski directed joint features Ben Kingsley reprising his Whackness therapist role (we like to think), and HBC as Sir Benny's poor, lonely client.

It's simple, artistic, and has a satisfying and amusing finale.

Looks like Roman Polanski's classic was supposed to have a bit more star power!

Rutanya Alda, best known for Mommie Dearest, was Mia Farrow's stand-in for the flick.

When Mia was late, Polanski decided to shoot a scene with cameos from Joan Crawford and Van Johnson—without her!

Alda recalls Joan's very cordial but mistaken greeting:
