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 could once again be facing extradition to the US over long-standing child sex charges, it has emerged. The new Polish justice minister and attorney general, Zbigniew Ziobro, has asked the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling made last October by a court in Krakow, which stated that it would be against Polish law to have him extradited.
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.
A request to extradite Roman Polanski to the US has been rejected in a Polish court. Judge Dariusz Mazur at the district court in Krakow said the film director’s extradition was ‘inadmissible’. The director served 42 days of a 90 day plea bargain in 1977 after he was convicted of unlawful sex with a minor, but fled the country when he discovered that he was likely to serve more time in prison.
