Huh? Hasn't he considered himself about the law for the past 33 years, when he's been a fugitive? And is it a little weird that his current wife is 43 years old, which means that she's actually younger than Polanski's victim (who's 45 or 46)?
Polanski's wife also excuses his conduct on the ground that back then, "It was a crazy time. The attitude to drugs was not the same, nor was the attitude to sexual liberty and permissiveness."
Um, I realize that I didn't come of age in the 1960s, seeing as how I was born late in that decade, and that my vague memories of the 1970s were not from living with drugs or permissive sex, but I certainly don't recall that it was permissible then to ply 13 year olds with drugs and alcohol and then raping them.
