ROMAN POLANSKI, Swiss Deny Bail, Will He Be Extradited to the States???
Swiss authorities denied a request to release film director Roman Polanski on bail after he was arrested in September after fleeing sentencing for having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977, a government spokesman said on Tuesday.
“In our view, there is still a very high risk that he will flee and that a release on bail or other measures after a release cannot guarantee Polanski’s presence in the extradition procedure,” Justice Ministry spokesman Folco Galli said.
Yes, I would have to agree. If he skipped bail 30 years ago, he would probably do it again. Where’s he going to go? Brazil? He needs to come to LA and do his time. They will probably give him 3 years and he will be out in less than 2 years.
Also, he needs to pay his victim the other $100,000 he owes her from a civil suit.
