Polanski was arrested and charged in 1977 with raping 13-year-old Samantha Gailey (now Geimer). The acclaimed director, originally from Poland, pleaded guilty to engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, and then fled to France, where he continued making films for many years.

Geimer, now 52, has told that she is willing to put it all behind her, and just move on.

"I hope Roman Polanski will be allowed to return to America, and that the rest of his life will be happy," Geimer has said. But she also recalled the moments leading to her alleged rape, at the home of Jack Nicholson.

"Polanski told me to get in the Jacuzzi," she claimed. "I didn't have a bathing suit, so I got in wearing my underwear."

Polanski then got in the hot tub completely naked, and called for Geimer to join him, she's claimed. The booze, mixed with some Quaaludes he had also given her, allegedly lowered her defenses.

"Then he took me by the shoulders, walked me into a bedroom, and started to have intercourse with me," she claimed. "I told him, 'No! No!' I was so frightened, but I thought if I fought him, God knows what would happen."

"I did not lure Roman Polanski into sex," she insisted. "He raped me. In a single afternoon, I lost all my innocence, all my ability to trust people."

Polanski himself is not expected to be at today's hearing.
