Woman Says Roman Polanski 'Victimized' Her in 1973

Attorney Gloria Allred and a woman who gave her name only as Robin accuse Roman Polanski of having sexually assaulted Robin when she was a minor

A second woman from southern California came forward Tuesday, accusing film director and convicted child rapist Roman Polanski of sexually assaulting her when she was a minor.

A judge is considering whether to sentence Polanski in absentia or dismiss his case.

Robin said she was "infuriated" by Geimer's pleas for mercy on behalf of Polanski.

"She had every day of her life since the day it happened to speak about it", Geimer told the Daily News. She declined to give her last name or disclose any details about the incident, or her relationship to the film director.

According to a report of Variety website, Polanski's attorney on Tuesday blasted Allred for interfering in his efforts to resolve the director's 40-year-old rape case.

Robin and Allred both refused to discuss specifics about the exact nature of the sexual encounter.

Robin, who is now 59, told reporters that the director of such hits as Rosemary's Baby and Chinatown partook in a sexual act with her in 1973, when she was just 16 years old. "I am speaking out now so that Samantha and the world will know she is not the only minor Roman Polanski victimized".

"While we understand that Ms Geimer would like this case to end, Robin and I feel that it is very important that Mr Polanski returns to court in California to be sentenced", Allred said.

Dunford to meet with S. Korean president amid threat from North
North Korea's state-run media today condemned the planned military drills and said the USA is "letting out risky war rhetoric". What doesn't: a fiery war of words between North Korea and the USA president just ahead of the drills.

As she spoke, Robin M. dabbed at tears, not unusual at Allred press conferences featuring women who have accused Bill Cosby of raping them decades ago (Allred represents more than 30 Cosby accusers).

In April, a Los Angeles County judge denied Polanski's latest effort to resolve the 40-year-old statutory rape case, saying that the filmmaker can not be sentenced in absentia because he remains a fugitive from justice.

She said she never made the accusations public because she was afraid her father would take action that could result in his imprisonment.

In the Geimer case, Polanski admitted statutory rape and apparently been promised that he would not serve any further time in prison, but fled to France when he thought the judge was going to scrap his plea deal and jail him.

"He fled the country". "Recently I saw Samantha Geimer on the news appearing to support Mr. Polanski and saying that he's done everything he needed to do. Years have passed and he's famous, but that does not excuse his criminal conduct of sexually victimizing minors".

Robin's attorney, Gloria Allred said her client has decided against filing a civil complaint against Polanski, but remains available as a witness.

"If she wants to, she can come to court and file a brief in favor of the prosecution's position" on Polanski - not hold a news conference, Braun said.
