California Judge Rules That Polanski Must Return to U.S. for Sentencing

Posted by David Schmader on Fri, Jan 22, 2010 at 5:51 PM

From Bloomberg News:

Film director Roman Polanski will have to return to California to be sentenced, more than 32 years after he pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl, a judge said. California Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza, at a hearing today in Los Angeles, denied Polanski’s request to be sentenced in absentia. The judge, who last year denied Polanski’s request to dismiss the case for alleged judicial and prosecutorial misconduct, said that as a fugitive, Polanski must surrender to the court before he can get a hearing.

Well then.
