Polanski deserves everything he gets and no amount of "talent" will ever change him from what he is, a pedophile.
To answer the question:
I'm not sure what that means: does that make sex between a 17- and a 18-year old a crime?
A friend of mine from Washington state's son was arrested on his 18th birthday for consensual sex with his girlfriend, 17. Statutory rape, didn't matter to them that he was not 18 at the time of the sexual contact. He is forever labeled a level 1 sex offender in the state because his girlfriend's mom didn't like him and called authorities. Girlfriend testified in his behalf, it didn't matter.
Now, thats rare, and I don't want to hi-jack avishai's thread but I wanted to answer you.
