"Don't tell your mom." You've gotta know you just committed a crime when that's what you say to your sex partner in the afterglow.
In 1977, Roman Polanski, took thirteen-year-old Samantha Geimer over to Jack Nicholson's house in Bel Air while the actor was away. Polanski, director of the films Chinatown and Rosemary's Baby, had arranged to snap photos of the girl in her swimsuit, for the French edition of Vogue.
Eventually, the pair took a dip in the hot tub, and Roman gave the girl champagne and quaaludes. Afterwards, there was sex. But then Samantha did tell her mom. Polanski was arrested shortly thereafter and charged with six criminal counts:
1. rape of a minor
2. rape by use of a drug
3. committing a lewd act upon a person less than 14 years of age
4. oral copulation
6. furnishing drugs to a minor
Ultimately, Polanski took a plea bargain and acquiesced to one count of unlawful sex with a minor. But then he fled to France before the sentencing hearing. He has never been back to the United States since.

- Now, this is not to say he is a bad film maker. The Pianist is one of my favorite movies. It's amazing. But this is unacceptable.
Rape isn't consentual when you drug a 13 year old, and get her drunk and then have sex with her while she's unconcious. Sorry. http://www.rotten.com/library/bio/artists/roman-polanski/
