Polanski Child Sex Victim Speaks Out

"In Rosemary's Baby, the husband plies Mia Farrow with alcohol and with a drug and the devil rapes Mia Farrow," Gunson said. "Polanski plied this victim not only with champagne but also gave her a quaalude and when she became affected by the alcohol and the drug, he raped her."

Polanski pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse as part of a plea agreement and he went to jail for a short time in order to undergo psychiatric evaluation.

When Polanksi realized the judge intended to sentence him to more time behind bars, he fled to France.

Geimer says his disappearance was easier to deal with than the attacks she faced from the media.

"I just remember it was all my fault," Geimer said. "It was all my mom's fault. We were lying. We were after money. We wanted a career move, or something, but nothing nice."

Geimer said the public was sympathetic to the famed director, whose eight-months-pregnant wife, actress Sharon Tate, had been slaughtered in 1969 in the grisly Manson Family murders.

Geimer, who filed a civil suit against Polanksi that was settled with an agreement neither party is at liberty to discuss, hopes Polanski will be pardoned and able to return soon.

The 69-year-old director was nominated by his peers earlier this week for the Directors Guild of America Award.

His nomination for The Pianist was his first by the DGA since he fled the United States.
