Oscar-winning director Roman Polanksi has been arrested on a rape charge he's been ducking since the 70s. Swiss authorities arrested Polanski on his way to the Zurich film festival over the weekend. In 1977 - he pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl in the U.S., but he fled to Europe before he was sentenced. The victim is now 45 and a mother of three. She filed court papers saying, ”I am no longer a 13-year-old child. I have dealt with the difficulties of being a victim…every time this case is brought to the attention of the court, great focus is made of me…that attention is not pleasant…”
What do you think? Should Polanski be extradited and face a sentence? Or should the victim’s feelings be taken into account?
