Court records show Roman Polanski agreed to pay his sexual assault victim $500,000 to settle a lawsuit 15 years after he fled the United States.

The film director's attorney reached the deal in 1993. Records do not indicate if Polanski paid.

The last court filing shows the payment increased to $604,000 in 1996 because of interest.

Polanski's attorney in the case — David Finkle — declined to comment Friday.

Polanski pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl. He fled in 1978 before he was sentenced and is being held in Switzerland after his arrest there last weekend on a fugitive warrant.

The victim and her family have not returned calls seeking comment.
