Roman Polanski has been arrested and detained in Switzerland while trying to enter the country from his home in France. Swiss authorities detained Polanski on an outstanding American warrant for his arrest in connection with his alleged rape of a 13 year old girl. Polanski is the Oscar-winning director of The Pianist and has directed other classics like Rosemary's Baby and Chinatown. He is the widower of actress Sharon Tate who was murdered by the Manson family in 1969. Polanski is one of the most famous fugitives of American justice in the world. The alleged rape occurred in the home of actor Jack Nicholson and his then girlfriend, actress Angelica Huston. Nicholson was not at home at the time but Huston was. The charges allege that Polanski first drugged the girl and then raped her. Huston claims that the girl did not appear to be 13. Polanski was arrested, arraigned, and Polanski plead guilty to one charge of sexual intercourse with a minor but fled the US before he was sentenced. Polanski's victim, Samantha Geimer, has since announced that she has received a monetary settlement from Polanski and has no interest in re-living the event again in a court room. There has been a lot of talk about Polanski's case. Many feel that since his victim has no interest in pursuing the matter any longer that charges against him should be dropped. At the time of the original case, the judge made some unethical deals with prosecutors in order to avoid a media circus in his court room and so some argue Polanski should be tried all over again. Others state that he should be prosecuted for the crime anyway and, at the very least, be prosecuted for failing to appear at his sentencing. Swiss officials will hold extradition hearings and they have cautioned everyone that no determination about Polanski will be made until the extradition hearings have taken place. So what say you?
