Among the principle characters in Quentin Tarantino's new movie about the Charles Manson murders will be director Roman Polanski, according to reports.
Prosecutors in Los Angeles will not seek criminal charges against the director Roman Polanski over new claims from a woman that he molested her when she was 10-years-old.
Less than a week after offering to return to the United States to face rape charges so long as he would be guaranteed no jail time, Roman Polanski has been informed that no such deal will be made. After admitting his guilt, Polanski was initially offered a deal whereby he would spend a mere 90 days in custody for psychiatric evaluation, but fled the US after being informed that the judge in question had changed his mind and would push for heavy jail time. The demands of a no jail guarantee made by Polanski’s legal representation (the latest of many attempts to resolve the matter and allow Polanski back in the US) hinge on the conditions of this initial deal, but the LA DA is not convinced.
Roman Polanski faces yet another attempt to be extradited to the U.S., where he has been a fugitive after pleading guilty in 1977 to unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl.
