Transcripts from Roman Polanski rape case to be unsealed after 45 years

The 45-year rape case against filmmaker Roman Polanski has reached a major step towards potentially being resolved following a decision to finally allow transcripts of a former district attorney to be made public.

Polanski pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor – statutory rape – in August 1977 but fled to France from the United States before a sentencing hearing, and has lived abroad ever since.
