New Polanski Accuser Comes Forward

Another woman has accused director Roman Polanski of sexually assaulting her when she was a minor-and her lawyer says she hopes more victims will come forward. The 59-year-old woman, who gave her name only as Robin, says Polanski abused her in 1973, when she was 16 years old, the Los Angeles Times reports. At a press conference at attorney Gloria Allred’s office Tuesday, she says she kept quiet at the time because she feared her father would “do something that might cause him to go to prison for the rest of his life.” Robin said she decided to come forward now because she was “infuriated” by the forgiving attitude of Samantha Geimer, who Polanski has pleaded guilty to raping when she was 13.
