Roman Polanski Arrested…Finally

Roman Polanski Arrested… Finally

Apparently Roman Polanski, a famous film director, was taken into custody in Switzerland. Thirty years ago, Polanski fled to France after pleading guilty to statutory rape with a 13-year-old girl. He of course fled the U.S. so he couldn’t be sentenced. The Swiss authorities have been working for a while on arresting the director.

All I can say is, it’s about time! It’s one thing to plead innocence and want to escape a sentence that isn’t deserved. However, it is completely different to admit to committing the crime and still flee the country to miss out on punishment that is obviously deserved.
