In 1977, director Roman Polanski (Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby) pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor after he was charged with having sex with then-13-year-old Samantha Geimer during a photo shoot at Jack Nicholson's LA home. It was revealed that Polanski had given Geimer champagne and half a Quaalude before raping her. But to avoid prison, Polanski fled from the U.S. to France in 1978 and never came back. He now moves freely between France and Switzerland, but a warrant for his arrest remains in 188 countries.
Now Geimer, 47, is writing her tell-all memoir titled The Girl: Emerging from the Shadow of Roman Polanski for Atria Books, according to the Associated Press. The book will provide "insight into many dimensions of the story.â€ť The publisher has revealed that the book will hit stores next fall.
