    Roman Polanski's requested US return deal shot down

    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.
