Charlotte Lewis, now a well known British actress, who co-stared with Eddie Murphy in "The Golden Child" says that she was abused sexually in 1982 in the Paris apartment of Roman Polanski when she was just 16. The age of consent in France is 15, meaning that statutory rape laws does not apply here, as the victim was a year over the age of consent in France at that time. But Charlotte Lewis is claiming Polanski forced himself on her so this is not merely a statutory rape case but rather a forcible rape case. Neither Lewis nor her lawyer Gloria Allred would describe how Polanski used force against the actress. According to People, victim two Charlotte Lewis says "All I want is justice." She held a press conference and claimed he forced himself on her affecting her later marriage and intimate relations. Radaronline.com report:
Charlotte Lewis, who starred in the Polanski film Pirates, spoke at a news conference Friday saying “he (Roman Polanski) sexually abused me in the worst possible way when I was 16 years old.”
“In addition to the fact that both myself and his previous victim were underage, I believe that there are other similarities in the crime that he committed.”
She continued, “Mr. Polanski knew that I was only 16 years old when he met me and forced himself upon me in his apartment in Paris. He took advantage of me and I have lived with the effects of his behavior ever since it occurred. All I want is justice.”
Wow, fresh allegations that he abused another minor? Look, no one is saying guys shouldn't have anal sex with hot teen girls, okay. I don't think anyone has come here today to argue against that. The problem comes when they are closer to 12 than 20. Sex with 18 and 19 year-olds should be good (young) enough for everyone. But even more importantly, don't use force to get sex. And if you plan to claim they wanted it, stop when they ask you to stop and don't drug them until they are near unconsciousness first. I am still not sure how directors and actors like Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Monica Bellucci, Pedro Almodovar and David Lynch support Roman Polanski. Oh wait, yeah I do. Half of those people are perverts too. You may be surprised, but having a guy who married his stepdaughter vouch for you isn’t as promising as it sounds. Anyway, Charlotte Lewis appeared in a cover-featured pictorial in the July 1993 issue of Playboy magazine ten years after she was raped by Roman Polanski. So, Roman Polanski had this chick minus ten years. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Charlotte Lewis (born August 7, 1967 in Kensington, London, England) is an English actress. After acting in the long running British TV series Grange Hill, Charlotte Lewis made her film debut as a teenager in the 1986 Roman Polanski film Pirates. She followed this with her role as the female lead in The Golden Child alongside Eddie Murphy that same year. In 1990 she appeared in the film Tripwire. In 1992 she starred opposite James Spader in Storyville. But despite these early successes, her career developed only intermittently, with her 1995 co-starring role in Men of War alongside Dolph Lundgren perhaps being her most memorable. In 2003 she starred in the film Hey DJ. www.Uncensored-Gutter.com
Roman Raymond Polanski (pl. Roman Rajmund Polański) (born August 18, 1933 in Paris, France) is a Polish-French film director, producer, writer and actor. Polanski began his career in Poland, and later became a celebrated Academy Award-winning director of both art house and commercial films, making such films as Rosemary's Baby (1968) and Chinatown (1974). Polanski is one of the world's best known contemporary film directors and is widely considered as one of the greatest directors of his time. He is also known for his turbulent and controversial personal life. In 1969, his pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, was murdered by the Manson Family.
In 1977, he was arrested in Los Angeles and pleaded guilty to
"unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor", a 13-year-old girl.
Polanski was 44 years old at the time of the crime. Released after
a 42-day psychiatric evaluation, Polanski fled to France. For
decades, Polanski has been considered by U.S. authorities to be a
fugitive from justice, and a U.S. arrest warrant has been
outstanding since 1978. Polanski for many years avoided visits to
countries that were likely to extradite him, such as the United
Kingdom. However, on September 26, 2009, he was arrested by Swiss
police on arrival at Zürich Airport while trying to enter
Switzerland, on his outstanding 2005 international arrest warrant
and at the request of United States authorities. Prior to his
arrest, he traveled mostly between France, where he resides, and
Poland. As a French citizen, he was protected by France's limited
extradition with the United States. www.Uncensored-Gutter.com
