I'm Sorry; I Really Am.

At the risk of gross understatement, it can't be easy to have been raped at 13, and it can't be easy to try to deal with it being dragged up again, decades later.  So this is quite understandable:
The victim in the Roman Polanski sex case has called for charges against the director to be dismissed, court filings showed Monday.

Lawyers for Samantha Geimer, who was 13 when Polanski had sex with her in 1977, called for the dismissal in a court motion filed in Los Angeles on Friday.
Unfortunately, it's not about her, at least not completely.  A rapist has evaded the law for thirty years.  Justice requires  that he brought be forced to face up to his crimes.  No matter how cold it may sound, the issue is greater than the desires of one victim.
