Every once in a while, Woody Allen gets to take a breather from being Hollywood’s top ick-inducing director because Roman Polanski (serving Miami Vice creepy in that white blazer) resurfaces with a new film to peddle. Promoting his latest film, Based On A True Story, Roman talked about his rape case with The Hollywood Reporter and said, “As far as what I did: It’s over. I pleaded guilty.” It’s not that easy.

Roman Polanski, 83, is being accused of sexually assaulting a minor for the THIRD time. A woman, who is only being identified as “Robin,” appeared at a Gloria Allred-hosted press conference in L.A. yesterday. (Honestly, how does Gloria juggle her caseload? Does she just show up for the first press conference, and then the one on the courthouse steps after the trial is over? Are there Gloria Allred doppelgangers?) Continue reading
Director Roman Polanski pled no contest to raping a 13-year-old girl in 1977, and then fled the country when it looked like he was going to have to serve some Subway Jared-level jail time. Now, Roman wants to sashay back into the States, spend a couple of nights at an upscale fantasy prison in Malibu, and then be done with it.
Unfortunately for Rosemary’s babydaddy, that’s not how raping an underage girl works here in America. Prosecutors have informed Roman that no deals will be made for a brief prison stay and he needs to get his ass back here for a hearing tomorrow to find out what’s going to happen to him.
Roman Polanski pleaded no contest to raping and drugging a 13-year-old girl in 1977, and the story goes that he struck a plea bargain with prosecutors that would require him to serve only 48 days in prison. Yes, only 48 days for anally raping a child. Subway Jared wishes.
Roman’s lawyers claim that the judge in the case, Judge Laurence Rittenband, signed off on that deal. Roman served 42 days, and when he got out of the clink in Chino, CA, he learned that Judge Laurence’s mind had changed. Judge Laurence told prosecutors that he wanted Roman to serve 50 years in prison. PedoBear’s second favorite director, after Woody Allen, didn’t want to spend most of his life in prison, so a day before sentencing in 1978, he busted out of the U.S. and headed for Europe.
He was living free in Europe until 2009, when he was arrested in Switzerland and lived under house arrest for almost a year while fighting extradition to the U.S. The Swiss government eventually rejected the U.S.’s extradition request and set him free. And now Roman is sick of being a fugitive and wants to come back to the U.S. to prove that the late Judge Lawrence wronged him. I hope you keep a box of Kleenex on your desk, because I’m sure you’ll need to wipe that tear that trickled down your cheek after reading about the woe of being poor Roman Polanski.
