Months later, huh? So much for my ability to navigate LJ too. Oh well. Useful to know he's an evil twerp nonetheless.

Yes, this is an entry from last August.
I'm surprised you don't remember the incident. I was so outraged. He did not help his cause by saying in interviews that it was consensual (as if a 13-year-old and one who, btw, he'd fed champagne and quaaludes, could consent to sex with a middle-aged man), that she wasn't a virgin, and that she looks like a woman so it's okay. Oh! If he's attracted to her, then of course he can do whatever he wants to her, as long as he's not "ruining" her for some other man who might want to be the first to rape her. He didn't claim he didn't know how old she was, since there were plenty of witnesses who could testify he did.
And he was just indignant to find out that even with the plea deal there would be jail time involved. So, he left the country. I guess there's no statute of limitations on this kind of thing - he couldn't even come back to accept an Oscar.
I'm delighted to hear there's no statute of limitations for that -- how terribly disgusting. Funny how it's NEVER mentioned about him in commentary on his films. He obviously didn't ever think what he did was wrong in any way...
But don't be surprised I don't remember the incident. It's highly possible I read all about it at the time, and had strong opinions even then.... My memory is going all askew. Stress.

Re: End line
I'm surprised you haven't seen it mentioned. Maybe I just look for it? I know when he got an Oscar a few years back (The Pianist), they didn't say anything about it at the awards ceremony (which I actually think is appropriate) but it sure got mentioned in all the articles - both before and after.
Sorry about the stress memory stuff...
