Wednesday, February 12, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show will talk to Lawrence Silver, the man who for 35 years has served as Samantha Geimer’s attorney, friend and confident and is the co-author of the true story of 13-year old Geimer’s rape by the famous Hollywood director as revealed in the memoir The Girl, A life in the Shadow of Roman Polanski.
Attorney Lawrence Silver has had a front-row seat to one of the most controversial and complex legal cases of our day: “Jane Doe vs. Roman Polanski,” the rape charges brought against the Academy Award-winning Hollywood director of such noted films as Chinatown and Rosemary’s Baby.
Silver found himself embroiled in the most sensational rape cases of a generation, taking on a powerful Hollywood celebrity, as well as one of the most sympathetic. Polanski, a Holocaust survivor, had recently lost his eight-and-a-half month pregnant wife, the beautiful actress Sharon Tate, brutally murdered by The Manson Family.
Like the current drama sitting front and center in the tabloids, the accusations of rape by Dylan Farrow against her notorious father Woody Allen, the case argued became celebrity vs. alleged victim.
