It has only been a day since Roman Polanski made a rare public statement regarding his 1970 rape case, and now the director has been accused of sexual misconduct by another woman.
Renate Langer, a 61-year-old former actress from Germany, has filed a report with the Swiss police accusing the director of raper her at a house in Gstaad when she was 15 in February, 1971, the New York Times reports.
Langer is now the fourth woman to publicly accused Polanski of sexual assault.
According to the publication, the public prosecutor's office is still deciding if she can pursue a criminal complaint.
Langer has told The New York Times that she came forward in hopes that the law would allow her claim to be investigated. She also explained that she kept quiet about the incident at the time, mostly in fear of her parents reaction.
'My mother would have had a heart attack,' she told the paper. 'I felt ashamed and embarrassed and lost and solo.'
A lawyer for Polanski reportedly declined to comment.
The new report comes after the director spoke out about his 1970s rape accusation in a rare interview, saying that he feels he's completed his sentence.
'As far as what I did: It’s over. I pleaded guilty,' Polanski told The Hollywood Reporter. 'I went to jail. I came back to the United States to do it, people forget about that, or don’t even know. I then was locked up here [in Zurich] after this festival. So in the sum, I did about four or five times than what was promised to me.'
Polanski fled the United States in 1978 after he pleaded guilty to statutory rape against Samantha Geimer, who was 13 at the time. After being detained in Switzerland, he was jailed and placed on house arrest for several months, until the Swiss government officially declined to deport him.
Since then, Polanski has remained a fugitive. The case is still ongoing, despite Geimer’s requests to have it dismissed.
