I wish all jurisdictions would abandon having statutes of limitation - ideally for all sexual offences, but especially for sexual abuse/rape of minors. It's obvious to anyone with half a brain that victims of underage sexual abuse often don't feel able to come forward until years, decades even, after the event. Their abusers should not get off on a technicality.
Polanski is a monster. And absolute monster. Hes been defended by everyone and let's not forget he was at jack Nicholson and Angelica houstons house when he raped a 13 year old. They thought "nothing of it"
