Imagine for a moment the terror this woman has lived with her whole adult life.
Forty years ago, a 13-year-old girl clutched a heart charm her friend gave her as a prosecutor made her describe in explicit detail to a grand jury her alleged rape by director Roman Polanski.
On Friday, Samantha Geimer testified in the criminal case for the first time since that day, this time pleading with a judge to sentence Polanski, 83, to time served, so that her family can be released from the media spectacle that has haunted her life since that day.
Geimer, 54, said freeing the fugitive director of his international warrant would be “an act of mercy to myself and my family.”
Polanski, and the incompetent authorities in Los Angeles, continue to brutalize this woman. He deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison.
