    Yes. In 1977, Roman Polanski invited a 13 year old girl named Samantha Geimer to do a photo shoot with him. Geimer was uncomfortable with it because he asked her to pose topless but agreed to return later for another photo shoot. At that shoot, which took place at Jack Nicholson's house while he was out of town, Polanski gave her champagne and quaaludes and then orally, anally and vaginally sodomized her. Polanski was arrested and harged with five counts of sex crimes but copped a plea deal which resulted in the dismissal of four of the charges. Polanski agreed to serve up to 90 days pending a psychological evaluation. After a month and a half he was released ahead of a final sentencing. Polanski's lawyers had expected him to get probation, but they learned that the judge was planning to sentence Polanski to a lengthy prison sentence. Polanski then fled to Europe, where he has lived ever since.

    Yes. The victim has written a book. If he enters the US, he will be arrested on sight. And, it is quite possible that she was not the only victim of the 'five foot Pole that no one would want to touch.'

    He is a wanted man in California, thus the United States wants him to turn him over to California. I don't know the exact crime, but it has something to do with sexual activity with a minor female. At one point, the Swiss police held him in house arrest but he was released when the US charge was found to not meet meet Swiss standards.

    Yes, and up until just recently when the whole #metoo bit took off, it was considered okay to support him publicly.
