Polanski had agreed to pay $50,000 to sex victim

Roman Polanski

The director agreed to pay the amount to Samantha Geimer as part of a civil settlement after she filed suit against him in 1988, accusing Polanski of sexual assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and seduction, Los Angeles Times reported. In October 1993, Polanski, who is presently under Swiss judicial custody, agreed to pay Geimer $500,000 with interest, according to documents.

He was given two years to pay. But her attorneys said in a filing that the director missed the 1995 deadline.

The documents indicate that Geimer’s attorneys battled with Polanski to get him to pay the settlement, however, it remains unclear exactly how much money the director gave her.

The last document in the file is an August 1996 statement saying the director still owed her $604,416, including interest. Geimer was just 13 when Polanski plied the aspiring model with alcohol and drugs and then had sex with her.
