Yet Another Woman Accuses Polanski of Rape

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:37 am

I have been dilatory in passing this along:

Another woman has come forward charging that Roman Polanski raped her in 1974, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

The woman, who was 21 at the time, reported the alleged sexual assault to the Los Angeles District Attorney in May and was interviewed by authorities.

Edith Michelle Vogelhut, a former model also known as Shelli Paul, told authorities Polanski “handcuffed” her at actor Jack Nicholson’s Hollywood house where he was staying, then sodomized her repeatedly, before he passed out, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Recall that Charlotte Lewis made a similar accusation some time back.

Well done, Swiss authorities. It’s a fine artiste you protected with your transparently ridiculous decision not to extradite. Well done indeed.

  2. Whenever I read about this scum in the news I think about it a little more. Have concluded that sometimes in this life the evil thrive, and get away with the most horrendous things. But they do not get away with it forever. And those who “eat and wipe their mouth and say ‘I did nothing wrong'” are the ones who will pay the most in the end.

    no one you know (196ed7)

  3. The Swiss court held something to the effect that the LA DA’s office did not provide the requested documentation and therefore did not have sufficient grounds to extradite. There appears to be some dispute as to why they did not provide the documentation with some indication the DOJ blocked the release. Does any one have any information as to the real story.

  6. The Swiss believed Polanski’s ambulance chasing shyster’s lies. May their children and grandchildren spend time in Polanski’s hot tub and drug emporium with the sodomizer in chief.

    Who’s side are they on?

    Really.

    So often lawyers, judges and others talk about “justice”. Do they even know the meaning of the word?

  8. What else would you expect from the same country that lied repeatedly about profiting from the monetary largesse stolen from millions of exterminated Jews. They also allowed hundreds of trains carrying these same Jews to their eventual end to freely traverse their country, every day.

  10. Dmac, while there was enough Swiss misconduct during and after WWII , alowing transit to trains filled with prisoners in transit to camps didn’t happen. Plain geography shows such transit would not have neen useful or necessary. In fact, when germany demanded transit for military trains to Italy, the Swiss refused and threatened to blow up the tunnels if forced. I would love to know your sources.

  11. Plain geography shows such transit would not have neen useful or necessary. In fact, when germany demanded transit for military trains to Italy

    I don’t know a thing about this, but this is somewhat of a contradiction. If Germany was demanding the tunnels, they must have thought they would be useful even if someone today claims they wouldn’t have been.

    The Swiss did nothing to help their fellow man very nearby in great need, and they profited nicely. It’s a disgrace whether they allowed trains to pass or not.

    As far as Polanski goes, he’s a monster and I’m sure there are dozens of victims. Most of us already realized this, but it’s sad to hear the details.

  12. Bar Sinister is correct according to what I read. In addition, Swiss squadrons shot down a significant number of German aircraft that crossed in Swiss airspace. They could have done a lot more, but the USA wasn’t surrounded by German troops when we stood up to them.

    tyree (63c76f)

  13. “If Germany was demanding the tunnels, they must have thought they would be useful even if someone today claims they wouldn’t have been.”

    Dustin – Tunnels to take troops to Italy might have been useful. Multitudes of Jews to camps, not so much. Neutrality is a bitch, isn’t it?

    I’d like yo see the sources of Dmac’s claims as well.

  14. Good point, Daleyrocks. Very good point, actually.

    Dustin (b54cdc)

  15. Well, I don’t have a lot of details, and I don’t speak for Dmac, but here is a place to start:

    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/nazis/etc/press.html

    Of course, it is PBS.

  16. Well, jeez, talk about bringing it up late.

    i mean its my understanding that the statute of limitations ran out long ago. So besides making a moral case for this man being locked up, it does us no good whatsoever.

  17. Just because he is old doesn’t mean he is through with young girls. Sad but could be true.

  18. When I have guests over I pay attention when they raid my fridge too many times.

    What’s up with Nicholson? He’s got some very generous terms to his hospitality, I guess.

    “Hey, what’s up Roman?…. um, is that a girl chained to the fountain again?”

    “Oh… um…. yeah.”

  19. I’m sure popular progressive puddinghead Oliver Stone will put us in some knowledge about the Swiss complicity with the Nazis when he releases his new ten part “documentary” about how Hitler was really a nice guy and the Jooooos dominate the U.S. media and foreign policy.

    daleyrocks (940075)

  20. As far as those accounts go, firstly, there weren’t that many—a few thousand at most. Secondly, the claimants, post-war, usually had no documentation or evidence for their claims.

    If I vanished, would my bank be justified in handing my account to some random person that came wandering in saying that he was my heir?

  21. another example of seeking Justice through Law – sort of like seeking nutrition through fast food.

    I don”t completely understand your comment, but the statute of limitations does not apply here. Such statutes demand that defendants be charged within a certain period. Polanski was charged and convicted in a timely manner. The statute if limitations has no application.

  23. Dustin, while the Swiss did do things in WWII that they should answer for, the reality is that they did more than one could really expect given their situation.

    Interestingly, the top general in the Swiss army was a guy named Guisan who was actually known to be a leader in a proto-Nazi Swiss political group. Nonetheless when WWII started, he put out a message to the nation ( remember that Swiss are a nation of reservists ) that the Swiss military leadership would never surrender if invaded and to ignore any claim that they had and to ignore any order to surrender.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  24. SPQR, it’s tough for me to gain the perspective to agree neutrality against the Nazis was, at least, better than some alternatives. You’re right, of course.

    It’s not necessary for me to condemn them for something their grandparents didn’t stand up for. I do admire the reservist model, but there was more than their will to fight for themselves keeping the Nazis at bay… there was also those actions you note they should answer for.

    still, I roll my eyes when people condemn Americans for something that happened before most of us were alive, so I probably should stick to things the Swiss did more recently, such as refuse to extradite a convicted rapist.

    Dustin (b54cdc)

  25. “Dustin, while the Swiss did do things in WWII that they should answer for”

    SPQR – What do the Swiss need to answer for?

    daleyrocks (940075)

  26. daleyrocks, there was some issues with the handling of tainted funds.

    Dustin, the Swiss of today seem to me to lack the fortitude of the Swiss of half a century or more ago. Sweden is another country that gives me that feel – 70 years ago thousands of Swedes volunteered to fight with the Finns against the Soviets’ invasion. Can you see them doing that today? I can’t.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  27. “daleyrocks, there was some issues with the handling of tainted funds.”

    SPQR – That’s not good enough when you tar the “Swiss.” Are you speaking about the government, the banks which accepted funds or the Swiss people as a whole?

    There is a quasi-industry devoted to tracing funds, assets and insurance back to their rightful owners from Holocaust era claims.
