In March 1977, film director Roman Polanski was arrested and charged in Los Angeles with five offenses against Samantha Gailey, a 13-year-old girl - rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance to a minor.
Polanski took plea bargaining and was going to be done out of it apparently. Not difficult to grasp, is it?
At his arraignment Polanski pleaded not guilty to all charges, but later accepted a plea bargain whose terms included dismissal of the five initial charges in exchange for a guilty plea to the lesser charge of engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse.
Upon learning that he was likely to face imprisonment and deportation, Polanski fled to France in February 1978, hours before he was to be formally sentenced. Since then Polanski has mostly lived in France and has avoided visiting countries likely to extradite him to the United States.
This stuff is just comedy gold - they actually want to make a Polish citizen face a legal system that is a complete joke?
Keep laughing when he goes to prison and they put him in a cell with his new lover Bubba.
Bubba don't show mercy on grown men who sodomize children.
Hats off to the new PiS for doing what is right.
Just another reason I would have voted for them.
