Polanski finally arrested

Todays good news story, after 31 years child rapist Roman Polanski is finally arrested.:

FILM director Roman Polanski has been arrested in Switzerland on a 31-year-old US warrant, AP reports.

Organisers of the Zurich Film Festival said Polanski was detained by police yesterday.

Zurich police did not immediately confirm the information to AP.

It is understood he traveled to Switzerland to receive a lifetime award for his work as a director.

Polanski fled the United States for France in 1978 after pleading guilty to unlawful sex with an underage girl.

Polanski was originally indicted on six charges, including rape, for having sex with a 13-year-old girl after plying her with champagne and drugs.

He insisted the sex was consensual but pleaded guilty to a single count of having sex with a minor, punishable by up to 20 years in prison…

 Lets see how long it will take the arty farty types to come out excusing him for his actions. As far as I’m concerned he can take his Oscar and stick it.
