Pub

Swiss rolled.

The whole Polanski issue has me a little foxed. As far as I can gather, a man had sex with a thirteen year old girl, and got caught. He was then charged with about six counts. He pleaded guilty to one count as part of a plea bargain, and then skipped the country, staying "fugitive" in France for thirty years. What happens after that, with the victim asking for the charges to be dropped and accepting a civil payment from him, seems rather moot.

He had sex with a thirteen year old, admitted it, and ran away. I have little sympathy. Am I being naive here?
