LA District Attorney Tells Roman Polanski to Surrender

Posted: January 7th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
LA District Attorney Tells Roman Polanski to SurrenderSubmit Comment
Nearly 31 years ago, director Roman Polanski (Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown) fled the United States after pleading guilty to having sex with a thirteen year-old girl. But last month he asked the Los Angeles County Superior Court to drop the case against him because of judicial and prosecutorial misconduct that was revealed last year in a documentary, "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired."

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office said that Polanski should "surrender first," if he really wants the case against him dismissed.

In a court filing responding to the request, prosecutors argued that Polanski, who lives in Paris and is now 75, was barred from seeking dismissal by his fugitive status, and should surrender to the court for sentencing before any questions about his case could be addressed.

A hearing in the case is scheduled for January 21st before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza.

Wow, Polanski survived Nazi occupied Poland, had his wife and unborn baby murdered by Manson's goons and reached successful director status in Hollywood to become a fugitive from US Government as a pedophile charged with rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance (methaqualone) to a minor. I have no love for him regardless of how much I enjoyed China Town & The Pianist or that he had such a messed up life going through the Holocaust or his wife's murder, he went too far and added insult to injury by after having played the system in getting a lesser charge ran away from doing time to now try & further play with legality to get off... Shameless to the max.

Roman Polanski is a genius, therefore he is expected to behave differently from the common homo-sapiens.

Jackson hasn't raped any children. He's just a weirdo that likes to pretend he's a child and often crosses the line into irresponsibility with the children in his presence.

Steve Cooley is still trying to get past that whole Jackson trial failure by practically begging Polanski to turn himself in, just so Cooley can have ONE high profile arrest, just so Big Steve can finally brag he bagged him a 'big one'. lol. this crime was more than 30 years ago. The girl is in her forties. Polanski is old, fairly close to death. This isn't something that much matters, as if Polannski in jail will do anyone much good. I wonder if the victim even cares anymore. Maybe. Would it help her if Polanski did time? I'd like to hear what Samantha Geimer thinks. Anyway, I sure enjoyed Frantic. BTW, Johnny Neat, stop copying and pasting from Wikipedia! Write your own damned sentences!

It can be 100 years old, the law should still be respected.

@minkowski, my humble writer's apology for coping Wikipedia on something I wouldn't waste originality on, FACT is FACT. You do the crime, you do the time, period. This wasn't a crime of necessity. I'm shocked you, of all people on here, would even raise a fuss over this prick or what facts are written (Copy/pasted) about him.

Oh and really because I still can't believe you even went there, I only copied bullet points that were lost on me but already known by me of Polanski, your idol.
