Director Roman Polanski Had Sex With a 13-Year-Old Girl. Is the Law About to Net Him, Again?

In this file photo taken in Krakow, Poland, Oct. 30, 2015, filmmaker Roman Polanski talks to reporters after a Polish judge ruled that the Polish law forbids his extradition to the U.S., where in 1977 he pleaded guilty to having had sex with a minor. On Tuesday, May 31, 2016, Poland's Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro, who took office in November, has requested the Supreme Court to annul that ruling and allow for Polanski's extradition. Polanski is a French and Polish citizen.
