The story of Roman Polanski continues to get deeper. The 76-year-old director must stay in his house and wear an electronic bracelet as officials decide whether to extradite him to the U.S. for having sex near 32 years ago with a 13-year-old girl. Polanski will be transferred on Friday to his chalet at Gstaad, Switzerland. Polanski has been in Swiss custody since being arrested Sept. 26 on a U.S. warrant as he arrived in Zurich to receive a lifetime achievement award at a film festival. Authorities in Los Angeles want him returned to be sentenced after 31 years as a fugitive. Polanski was initially accused of raping the 13-year-old girl after plying her with champagne and a Quaalude pill during a modeling shoot in 1977. He was indicted on six felony counts, including rape by use of drugs, child molestation and sodomy, but he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of unlawful sexual intercourse. Roman fled the USA before being sentenced and has lived in France where he became a citizen. Just do a search for Roman Polanski and see all the other twists and turns...
