ROMAN POLANSKI – Stunned Director Arrested in Switzerland for Rape!!!
It looks like Roman Polanski’s luck has run out. Today, the Oscar-winning director, was arrested in Switzerland for sexually assaulting a 13 year old girl in LA in 1977, fled the country before his sentencing.
The Los Angeles district attorney’s office, which prosecuted Polanski 32 years ago for the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl and has battled the director in the last year over his attempts to have the controversial case dismissed, initiated the arrest last week when it learned of his travel plans to Zurich.
“It wasn’t any secret. It was on the Internet. They were selling tickets to it,” said Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office. She said prosecutors prepared a provisional warrant and sent it to U.S. Justice Department officials who presented it to Swiss authorities.
The arrest stunned Polanski, who has long lived in Paris where his French citizenship protects him from extradition. His attorneys in the U.S. and France said that despite his fugitive status in the United States, the director routinely travels throughout Europe. He owns a chalet in the Swiss ski resort of Gstaad and festival organizers said they never considered his U.S. legal problems when recruiting him to headline their event by accepting a lifetime achievement award.
Sooner or later, karma will catch up with you. I wonder if he will be extradited back to Los Angeles?
