Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski fled California in 1978 after he entered a plea bargain for unlawfully drugging and having sex with a 13-year-old girl. (He maintained he panicked when he believed the judge was going to renege on the agreement.) Polanski, who was 44 at the time of the crime, is expected to be extradited from Switzerland to face justice in California for having sex with Samantha Gailey (now Geimer.) For her part, Geimer, who reportedly got a financial settlement from Polanski said she wished the entire ordeal could be "put to rest for both of us." She added, "I don't think he needs to be locked up forever. It's an unpleasant memory. (But) I can live with it." (credit: CBS)
