News: Roman Polanski Arrested on 30 Year Old Warrent

Source: FirstShowing

Roman Polanski arrived in Switzerland to accept a lifetime achievement award and instead he was finally arrested on a 1978 warrant after he fled the US after pleading guilty to charges of having unlawful sexual intercourse and the underage girl.

Before he fled, he already served 42 days in prison and the reason for fleeing came when the judge reneged Polanski’s plea bargain.

Polanski was recently asking the force to be thrown out and I’m curious to see how much time, if any, he will end up serving after spending the last 30 years exiled in France and Poland.
