  • Report: Roman Polanski Wants to Return to US, Settle Child Rape Case

Not a year after his arrest, Polanski fled California to Switzerland, where he has resided (and attempted to be extradited from) ever since.

After almost 40 years of running away from U.S. authorities, critically acclaimed filmmaker Roman Polanski will return to the USA to appeal his 1977 rape case. The Polish Supreme Court also dismissed the U.S. order and declared that he had served his time under the plea deal.

In 1977, Los Angeles director Roman Polanski was convicted of raping a 13-year old girl at a Hollywood party and has been on the run ever since but may soon return to the US for the first time in four decades.

It has been mentioned that Polanski will able to reach a plea deal that will assure that he will no longer serve jail time.

The Academy Award-winning director pleaded guilty in 1977 to unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl but fled to France in 1978 when the now-deceased judge in the case suggested in private remarks that he would renege on a plea bargain and sentencing agreement.

In 2009, the Chinatown director was captured in Switzerland and spent 334 more days in custody while US authorities unsuccessfully attempted to extradite him.

Geimer in the video also claims she has forgiven Polanski. He wants to freely travel in Europe and visit Tate's gravesite at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City.

Harland Braun wrote the letter to the judge, made public on Thursday, asking him to unseal the letter because it is crucial to attempts to resolve Polanski's case. He was also married to Sharon Tate, a famed model and actress who was murdered by the Manson Family in 1969.

Director Roman Polanski will make a move next week to return to the United States and end his child rape case for good, TMZ reported.

The multi-awarded director is known for films such as "The Pianist" and "Chinatown".
