Another alleged victim of Roman Polanski has come out with allegations that could give lie to Polanski’s assertion that the rape of Samantha Geimer was an “isolated incident.” Charlotte Lewis, who starred with Eddie Murphy in the 1986 film “The Golden Child” claims that Roman Polanski abused her as well, stating that “I am also a victim of Roman Polanski. He sexually abused me in the worst possible way when I was just 16 years old,”
The New York Post reports Charlotte Lewis as meing motivated by the desire to have an impact on Polanski’s sentencing if and when he is extradited to the US to face sentencing for the rape of a 13 year old girl, of which he was convicted in 1978. Charlotte Lewis is represented by celebrity attorney Gloria Allred.
The age of consent in France is 15, meaning that statutory rape laws did not apply to the accusations of Ms. Lewis, who was a year over the age of consent in France at that time. Had she reported the incident at the time, she would have to have alleged force or incapacitation to pursue rape charges. But she did not report the alleged rape at the time or pursue charges. The 28 years that have elapsed since then are far beyond any statute of limitations that would apply. Legal experts believe that her testimony would have no impact on sentencing. The only court in which the Charlotte Lewis rape allegations hold any sway is the court of public opinion, in which Polanski is listed as a Level 3 Five Star pampered slime ball. I would not doubt that there are other stories of Polanski outrages out there. Proving them in a court of law is another matter entirely
Let's do the math!!! Charlotte was born in 1967 She worked with Polanski on "Pirates" in 1985/1986 She would have been 18 0r 19 years old
As I understand her story, Ms. Lewis prostituted herself on Polanski's casting couch to get a lucrative part in Pirates. He is no less a slimeball, but the "child" knew full well what she was doing.
Roman Polanksi, rapist pervert criminal that should now be shot for his crimes. He is a vile little pervert, and he will not even own up to his acts. He should be vigorously pursued and incarcerated. He is not above the law, and these acts must be punished. Is always disgusting to see the mentally disabled liberal Hollywood idiots defend this pig. I can't believe these sick mentally ill liberal scum defend this pervert. If a man diddled my 13 year old daughter he would probably have to live out his days with his balls and at least one of his legs cutt off. That would be my street justice for a pig like this - castration and amputation of one leg above the knee. And if I was on a jury for a revenge against a pervert like this I would hang it and never convict, these people need to live in fear for being the vile twisted sick perverts they are.
She didn't state that the incident occurred during the shooting of Pirates. It could have been during a casting for pre-production, it could have been at an earlier meet.
