Child Rapist Roman Polanski Vows To Return To America

Roman Polanski vows to return back to America

Child rapist Roman Polanski says he plans to return to the United States as long as the government assures him that he will not have to serve jail time for his crimes.

The award-winning director has asked the U.S. government, via his attorney Harland Braun, to confirm that he will not have to serve prison time for unlawfully having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.

Yahoo News reports:

Braun has written to Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Scott Gordon to unseal a secret transcript of the testimony of the prosecutor in the Polanski case, which he believes will confirm the deal.

The Paris-born director was accused of drugging Samantha Gailey — who now uses the surname Geimer — before raping her at film star Jack Nicholson’s house in Los Angeles in 1977.

Polanski, who also has French citizenship, admitted having unlawful sex with a minor, or statutory rape, and spent 42 days in Chino State Prison before being released.

But in 1978, convinced a judge was going to scrap the plea deal and hand him a hefty prison sentence, he fled for France.

Polanski was arrested in Switzerland in 2009 on a US extradition request and spent 10 months under house arrest before Bern rejected the US order.

The United States then asked Poland to extradite Polanski in January 2015, but the country’s Supreme Court ruled in December that he had served his time under the plea deal.

– ‘Safe in my country’ –

Braun believes the secret testimony of prosecutor Roger Gunson collected in 2010 in the US supports Polanski’s claim that he had an agreement to serve just 48 days and that — taken with the Polish decision — it should convince the US authorities Polanski has served his time.

“After we confirm the contents, we will urge the court to recognize the Polish decision resulting from a litigation initiated by the (district attorney) and in which the DA participated,” Braun told AFP.

“If the court accepts the principle of comity, Roman can come to Los Angeles and to court without fear of custody.”

Polanski’s French legal team told AFP the filmmaker was not intending to be present at a hearing scheduled for next week in Los Angeles to consider a request.

Polanski told the private news channel TVN24 after the Polish court had ruled in his favor that he was “happy this business is over once and for all.”

“I only regret that I had to wait so long. I’ll finally be able to feel safe in my own country.”

Polanski, who lives in France and had been avoiding Poland because of the case, said he planned to visit his father’s grave in the southern city of Krakow.

The filmmaker has been engaged in a decades-long cat-and-mouse game with US officials seeking his extradition for trial, before a global audience split between continuing outrage and forgiveness for his acts.

Born in Paris in 1933 to Polish Jewish parents who later brought the family back to their native country, he saw his parents arrested by the Nazis in Krakow’s Jewish ghetto and sent to concentration camps.

– Brutal slaughter –

He roamed the countryside, trying to survive at the age of just eight, helped by Catholic Polish families, in a country occupied by German troops.

The experience lent a gripping autobiographical authenticity to his 2002 movie “The Pianist,” the story of a young Jewish musician trying to evade the Nazis in occupied Warsaw.

Lured to Hollywood in 1968, Polanski shot his first big international hit, “Rosemary’s Baby,” starring Mia Farrow as an expecting mother carrying the devil’s spawn.

But tragedy struck the following year when his heavily-pregnant wife, the model and actress Sharon Tate, and four friends were brutally slaughtered in the director’s mansion by cult leader Charles Manson and his followers.

Devastated, Polanski left for Europe, then returned to achieve arguably his greatest triumph in 1974 with “Chinatown” — an atmospheric film noir starring Jack Nicholson nominated for 11 Oscars.

He has avoided the US since the statutory rape case — not even returning to accept the Oscar for “The Pianist” — and jousted with the Justice Department for years after.

Geimer herself called for the charges to be dropped, complaining that in dogging Polanski for so long, antagonists had made him her co-victim in a case she wanted to put behind her.

“The publicity was so traumatic and so horrible that his punishment was secondary to just getting this whole thing to stop,” Geimer told CNN in 2003.

Polanski wants to visit Tate’s grave in Los Angeles, the celebrity news website TMZ reported. He has also not been able to visit his daughter in London, it said.


  1. dirty piece of arrogant shit polansky..fucking maggot…. somebody drive a screwdriver through his forehead.. fuking maggot

    • You definitely bring down any sense of legitimacy this site might have had with your filthy comment. you and the creep Dave You sound hatefully jealous, calling him arrogant.

      • “Jealous” of what!?

        This Pig Drugged, Raped, Anal Raped, and etc. a 13 yr old girl! I can’t hardly imagine Anyone would actually be “Jealous” of him in Any Way, Shape, or Form.

  2. So, Polanski drunk/drugged and with his mind blown by Charlie Manson, made a stupid mistake. Only a short time ago, in the Grand Scheme of Things, our land was pioneered by men and women who frequently were married and baring children at the age of 13. Polanski did not have weird sex with a pre-pubescent female, Polanski did not murder her. If America wants any of God’s mercy it better start by backing off of this man who has paid so dearly, so many times, for the evil of others. Christians, have you forgotten Jesus was a Jew? Have you forgotten the basic tenet, the underlying foundation of Christianity happens to be Forgiveness? Demand it for this man.

    • What does this have to do with Jesus being a Jew!?
      And Not everyone that is disgusted with this MAN, who Forced a Anal Rape, Rape, and drugged a 13 yr old girl, is a Christian….there is other Religions, and even atheists that are Grossed out by this Pig also!!

      • I have repeatedly read the anti-semetic rhetoric levied at Polansky for being a Jew. If we are not Muslims or Jews, per se, ourselves, who do not believe in an eye for an eye (should we have had Polansky sodomized? Would that make things better?), we forgive.( Don’t bother telling me NA is not still a Christian land.) I had actually forgotten about the anal rape but is it more criminal than vaginal rape? I know a woman who can argue the point. She was vaginally raped at 7 years of age and as a consequence, has never been able to have a child. What Polansky did was terrible. What Polansky had been through – his child being cut out, alive, of his lovely Sharon’s belly, (just one “incident” in a terribly difficult life that few could’ve survived or ever come away from at least temporarily untainted) was way beyond terrible and the devil got double time for his efforts. But now, as Polansky’s victim herself, has recognized: By our unforgiveness of Polansky, we have made him her “Co-Victim!” Devil scores thrice!

  3. wow this Rhonda is piece of work….. umm Rhonda… we don’t like yourtype here… you belong in a black lives matter march…now scoot … ffs

  4. If you want to see how fucked up Rhonda really is.. click on here name will show you all her drug crazed fucked up lefty comments… ewww Rhonda you creepin us out …. ewww Please make it stop

      • P.s. yup! Now I see! She is a complete Brainwashed Unhinged Dishevelled Uneducated Violent JEALOUS Crazy Looney Lying Lefty Racist Race Baiting Whiny Loser Nutjob DemonRat LIBTARD CryBaby Hypocrite!!!

    • Thomas Cornball, is it? Probably a made up name and a fake profile, betting! Cowards are all the same. Yeah, jealous. No-one is condoning what he did – just trying to walk a mile in his shoes ( trying to understand how he went off the rails – which isn’t difficult if your IQ is over 7, btw) and recognize, as his victim has (it’s called Grace when we have the ability to forgive – poor you) that the time is long over due to stop flogging the guy but you’re not into that, are you? You’re right, I don’t belong on the same forum with you or your ilk. Thank you for recognizing and articulating that.

  5. What he did was horrific! Minimizing his crime is victimizing the victim more.. the fact he has been free to pursue his life this entire time- well he got a blessing he did not deserve!! Now he can face accountability- finally! The fact he was victim of murdered family- would make one think – he would never ever commit violent act..kinda reinforces what a heartless creep he is!
