Charlotte Lewis Accuses Polanski of Abuse

It appears Roman Polanski’s sex crime may have a sequel: An actress named Charlotte Lewis who appeared in his 1986 film Pirates says Polanski, “sexually abused me in the worst possible way when I was just 16.” She went on, "He knew [how old I was] 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. I've traveled to the U.S. at my own expense to make sure that justice is finally done and that Mr. Polanski gets what he deserves. All I want is justice." Lewis has hired attorney Gloria Allred, though it’s unclear what legal remedy she is seeking.
