Roman Polanski has been arrested in Switzerland for the conviction he walked away from thirty years ago. Last year he was trying to get his record cleared in the US without actually having to come here and face a judge.
Polanski is not the only criminal who used wealth and power and friends to evade the law by hopping a plane. Maybe it’s a good thing that there are consequences.
At this late date, it’s hard to imagine he would do any prison time. But he’s had thirty years to publicize his version of events, and the child he preyed on is now a woman who must only wish he would stay away from her life and her family.
She’s already spoken to the press, they should leave her alone.
