Roman Polanski Posts Bail

Academy Award winning director Roman Polanski, arrested in September in Switzerland after fleeing the U.S. in 1978, will battle his charges from a much nicer location than prison after posting $4.5 million in bail Thursday. According to The Telegraph, Polanski—who admitted having sex with a 13-year-old girl—will have to wear an electronic tag to monitor his movements but will be able to move to his luxury home in a ski resort in Gstaad. Legal experts said Polanski's previous attempts to dodge justice made the move unusual and Interpol's Secretary General, Ronald Noble, warned that "Mr Polanski has given us more than 30 years of proof that he does not feel bound to respect any court decision with which he does not agree."
