    Variety reports that filmmaker Roman Polanski has been arrested in Switzerland today on a 1978 U.S. arrest warrant.

    Polanski was flying to Switzerland to receive an honorary award at the Zurich Film Festival when he was detained late Saturday at the airport, festival organizers said in a statement.

    The director fled the US back in 1978, a year after pleading guilty to the accusations that he had sex with a 13-year-old girl. He has since never returned to the U.S., but has continued to direct in France. Swiss officials say they arrested him because they have an extradition treaty with the U.S. that dates back to the 1950s that is still in force.


    Well if you're gonna run away instead of going ahead and take your punishment early, then this shit's gonna happen to ya Polanski...You woulda gotten out in time to make The Pianist!

    Jail must suck for 70-year-olds.

    The girl he molested (who is now in her 40's) has said they should just let him go. She's said this many times. I kinda think that if the victim, who is now an adult, wants her molester to go free, he should. Plus, the judge who was originally on the case is dead. Polanski will go free.

    IDK about that. Yeah the statue of limitations for the statutory rape is over, but they're probably going to keep him locked up for fleeing the country and not serving his sentence. THERE'S something that doesn't have a time limit to it, so I think they're gonna keep him with that loophole.

    Says the guy who likes Miley Cyrus

    And besides, like Debris said, she's in her 40's now and I'm sure she's getting sick of hearing it over and over and over and just being remembered for that one moment 30 years ago. She wants to get over it just like alot of other people.

    Zurich Film Festival organizers were surprised by all of this because Roman Polanski has flown in and out of Switzerland before, so they let their guard down.
    And so did Mr. Polanski.

    That's how these cases always play out. When everyone lets their guard down - BAM! law enforcement kicks it. Guess the Swiss police were suppose to notify the Film Festival board. SURPRISE!

    Well, it should also be noted that she sued him, and settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money.


    This might come out all wrong, but I want to see pictures of this girl at 13...
    Angelica Huston was there for the rape and she said she honestly thought the girl was as old as 25. Doesn't really matter though, I'm pretty sure I read that he knew her real age and never claimed otherwise.

    Like I said before, I'm pretty sure she doesn't want to have this keep lingering on 30 Years after it's happened. She doesn't want to play victim for the rest of her life and let it cripple her/hold her back, so she's moving on with her life instead of constantly playing the "I was traumatized forever and will NEVER EVER IN EVER recover" card. That at least I gotta respect.
