Oscar victor director Polanski faces new accusation of sexual assault

Oscar victor director Polanski faces new accusation of sexual assault

On Tuesday, a third woman came forward to say that she was "sexually victimized" as a minor by director Roman Polanski.

Allred said Robin is willing to testify if Polanski's case goes to trial.

Polanski attacked Geimer, whose surname at the time was Gailey, back in 1977 when she was just 13 years old.

In 2010, the british actress Charlotte Lewis, also represented by Gloria Allred, specialized in cases of sexual assault, had also stated that the director had been forced to have a sexual relationship when she was 16 years old. "An exception should not be made for a Hollywood film director, and it would be wrong for the court to appear to give special treatment to Mr. Polanski".

Robin said she came forward after learning that Samantha Geimer had urged the court in June to dismiss Polanski's case.

Robin said she told a friend the day after the alleged attack, but had not told her parents for fear of how her father would react and that he would "go to prison for the rest of his life".

In April, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon rejected a request by Roman Polanski's attorney for a determination that Polanski had already served more than enough time behind bars in connection with his 1977 guilty plea.

Neither Allred nor the woman would discuss details about the 1973 incident, which Allred said took place in Southern California. I'm not over it and I certainly believe that Roman Polanski should be held accountable for his criminal conduct with Samantha Geimer.

Polanksi pleaded guilty to the rape in 1979 abut immediately fled the country before sentencing. Allred also represented Lewis, who said the alleged assault happened at Polanski's Paris apartment.

As we've reported. Polanski had sex with Geimer when she was 13 in 1977. but she's since said what's happening to Polanski is outrageous because if she's over it. everyone else should be, too. "Years have passed and he's famous, but that does not excuse his criminal conduct of sexually victimizing minors". "Any other defendant who is not rich and famous would be required to be present for a sentencing proceeding on a conviction for a felony committed against a child".

Braun revealed that he had talked to Polanski about the latest claim, and "he said, 'I don't know what this is about".

Allred said they will not file a civil lawsuit against Polanski and will explore their next step.

Geimer has previously said she forgives Polanski for the assault.

Polanski contends he is the victim of judicial misconduct because the now-deceased judge who handled the case suggested in private remarks that he would not honor a plea bargain agreement.
