For those of you who haven’t been aware, Polanski(“Rosemary’s Baby” director) ADMITTED to drugging, raping, and sodomizing a 13 year old girl 32 years ago, and fled the country. Well recently, he was arrested, but was placed under house arrest in Swiss RESORT.
Now, his lawyers are fighting to have the case dismissed, and claimed that Polanski’s treatment by the California courts and prosecutors was “a really remarkable, astonishing record of misconduct”.
Thanks to The Daily Express for the news:
“They accused original trial judge Laurence Rittenband, who died of cancer in 1993, of alleged misconduct and unethical acts more than 30 years ago.”
Attorney Chad Hummel told the court, “I would argue to dismiss the case here and now… It sends chills up your spine what Judge Rittenband was doing.”
“The prosecution argued that the Rosemary’s Baby filmmaker should make an appearance in court to bid for a dismissal.”
Deputy district attorney Phyllis Asayama said, “Do we want to send a message not only to this defendant but to other defendants that fleeing is an option?”
“The judges are expected to make a decision within 90 days.”
I can tell you now that he will get away free, and if he doesn’t I’ll be very surprised. Why? Because our justice system is a JOKE, corrupt and flawed. I mean anyone with the right amount of money can get away with anything.
The guy PLEAD guilty to raping, drugging, and sodomizing a 13 year old girl, and then fled the country like a little bitch. And despite his celebrity status he should be brought to justice. And despite what the judge was like, it doesn’t change what happened.
