Polanski's victim wants case to go away — again

Samantha Geimer, who was 13 when director Roman Polanski had his way with her in Jack Nicholson's hot tub back in 1977, filed a formal request today that the legal charges against Polanski be dropped. She says the recent discussions of "lurid details" of the case, encouraged by prosecutors, is hurting her and pointless. "I have survived, indeed prevailed, against whatever harm Mr. Polanski may have caused me as a child," she writes. The Hollywood Reporter's Matthew Belloni has posted her full declaration.
