If Ms. Lewis was assaulted by Roman Polanski, it's horrible and I hope she gets some closure.

But on the other hand, this incident is alleged to have taken place during the first Reagan administration. The whole point of the matter involving Mr. Polanski now is that he fled from justice and flouted US law for decades, thus perpetuating his crime.
