So after all this time, they finally got him. Roman Polansky was nabbed in Switzerland. As far as I know, his trial will not be nice, and I do not believe he will be getting off easy. It’s been 31 years since he “got off easy” the first time with a 13 year old girl, like draws like I suppose.
Police in Switzerland took Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski into custody on statutory rape charges that the director has been avoiding for more than thirty years. Polanski, now 76, pleaded guilty to unlawful sex with a 13-year-old in 1977 in the United States, but fled the country before he could be sentenced and a warrant for his arrest was issued in 1978. He had been living in France ever since.
I don’t know if America had set up a sting to get him, afterall he is a high profile kinda guy, but the news went on to say:
Polanski was scheduled to receive an honorary award at the festival when he was apprehended Saturday at the airport, the Swiss Justice Ministry said in a statement. It said U.S. authorities have sought the arrest of the 76-year-old director around the world since 2005.
Polanski fled the U.S. in 1978, a year after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with the underage girl. The director of such classic films as “Chinatown” and “Rosemary’s Baby” has asked a U.S. appeals court in California to overturn a judges’ refusal to throw out his case. He claims misconduct by the now-deceased judge who had arranged a plea bargain and then reneged on it
Well, we shalt see what fate awaits the aging pedophile, life in prison at this age doesn’t make much sense. I will keep you posted on his upcomming trial, he may have been a creepy, old, innapropriate pedophile….But damn, could he make a good film!
BTW… Hey US government!!! Bin Laden!!!! We’re STILL LOOKING FOR BIN LADEN!!!! Roman Polanski isn’t going to blow up any buildings that we know of!!! I think you are looking for the wrong people!!!!!
