Good! It makes me sick to think that he thinks that because he has money, he can get away with raping a child.

Quote:
In 1977, he was accused of raping the teenager while photographing her during a modeling session. The girl said Polanski plied her with champagne and part of a Quaalude pill at Jack Nicholson's house while the actor was away. She said that, despite her protests, he performed oral sex, intercourse and sodomy on her.
That does NOT sound like statuatory rape. That's just rape.

^ Yeah, exactly. She got a settlement anyway. Not that that necessarily makes it better...

Not in crim law this semester. Prof sent an email today saying we'd be discussing battery, assault, and legislation aimed at protecting classes from their bad judgments. Guess that's what happens when you go to a FTT?

I am so puzzled why people that want it dismissed, including the victim, seem to feel it is OK to be a fugitive from justice at all?

Should we start disregarding criminals that have "escaped" after a certain period of time?

Meaning that the escape itself is no longer a crime?

In which case, I would say, why bother at all?

you would have to know the details of case from the beginning. there was judicial misconduct (ie corruption). it complicated things.

which is what it should be. regardless of what happened, if the victim doesn't want to dredge up the past, it should be left there. i just hate it when the state forces the matter.

The point it is, and has been is he ran from justice basically.

What good are having any laws then?

Seriously?

If you can run for long enough and far enough, we should just say,

"Oh ok. Forget about it now"....

So, if he say raped several underage girls, none of whom wanted to press charges, someone should just not be tried for the crime?

I guess I don't get some people's thinking on the case...because he's famous, had some hard circumstances and the crime has been so long (even though he has purposefully been avoiding places he can be extradited) he should just be forgiven the crime, it really makes no sense to me.

You do not have the choice here whether or not to press charges on any sort of sex crime or spousal abuse takes place. If there is reasonable evidence, or if a report was submitted, they will continue to prosecute the perpetrator regardless of the victim's wishes.

Really, why leave the onus of removing a predator from the streets all down to the victim? It is society's job to remove these people. I am sure the victim does have the choice, however, not to testify.

oh what he did is totally screwed up, i agree, i guess i was just looking at it more from the victim stance. i can't imagine she's going to enjoy having all of this dredged up. well, that and isn't this guy totally screwed anyway? he's admitted it in interviews so the second he hits us custody shouldn't his ship sink for the next few years in a cell?

he'd be dead by the time the judiciary misconduct is sorted out + tried for statutory + tried for fleeing the country. the judiciary misconduct also had much to do with his irrational reason to flee. the original prosecution doesn't want to prosecute him, nor does the victim. not saying he deserves leniency.

the charging has been taken away from the victims and given to the state for good reasons- think of the battered woman who doens't want to press charges because of the repercussions (i.e. she's had her life threatened by the perpatrator if she does press charges). The state takes on the responsibility so the batterer can blame the state instead of her (because of course, he would never blame himself). I'm a bit disgusted by all the celebs who are defending this guy and stating that he shouldn't be detained/charged. It boggles my mind too.

But I can't really understand the whole case... Can someone explain?

He was charged, and then pled guilty. But only because they arranged a bargain with the judge, which was not going to be honored?
Did he deny it before?
I'm just confused by it all. I mean, I understand if he is guilty he should be punished no matter who he is or what the victim says. (and really should be punished regardless for running) But I've also got to have some faith in a fair system, and it doesn't seem right to promise him to plead guilty, take away his opportunity for trial, and then change your mind an give him full punishment for pleading guilty.

It's one thing to support him, another to support his fight against what happened. Unless I'm completely misunderstanding what happened here.
