Los Angeles prosecutors will not provide criminal charges against Oscar-winning movie director Roman Polanski after a woman stated he molested her in 1975 — when she was ten years old — because the allegations are very old.
A district attorney’ s office memo obtained by The Associated Press upon Monday says prosecutors were decreasing to bring charges in the case because the law of limitations had expired.
The 84-year-old Polanski has been a fugitive since running to France in 1978 whilst awaiting sentencing for sexually attacking a 13-year-old.
The latest allegations were documented to police in October. The girl said she was molested throughout a photo shoot in 1975 right after Polanski had her pose naked.
Polanski’ s attorney, Harland Braun, reports the allegations are untrue.
