Polanski Victim Wants the Case Dismissed

For the past few weeks, I've been thinking the 13 year old girl Roman Polanski had sex with was living under a bridge somewhere, having nightmares between her panic attacks. But it turns out she wants the case dismissed and the media to leave her the H alone. AFP:

Lawyers for Samantha Geimer made the request in a court motion filed in Los Angeles on Friday, the latest of several pleas she has made for authorities to throw out the 1977 criminal case against Polanski.

The motion said Geimer, who now lives in Hawaii with her husband and children, has suffered health problems and job worries after a media "frenzy" following Polanski's arrest in Switzerland last month.

It cited calls by CNN's Larry King, US talkshow queen Oprah Winfrey, "every" national network morning show, three Los Angeles Times reporters and "nearly every major newspaper" from the United States and around the world.

"Between Samantha and her counsel, they have received close to 500 telephone calls from media around the world seeking a comment," the motion filed with California's Second District Court of Appeal read.

"The response -- 'please leave me alone.' But they won't leave her alone."

I almost felt bad for this woman all over again until I learned she lives in Hawaii. If all I had to do at age 13 was sleep with an old creep and then I get to live in Hawaii, I'd be all over that. Then again, at age 13, I thought oral sex meant talking dirty. I just learned that is not the case ...a couple of years ago.
