Rapist Still in Jail

In 'other' world news today, Roman (drugged and anally raped a 13 year old) Polanski is still in jail after the Swiss denied his attempt to get out. [There is still the matter of the criminal court upholding the recommendation, but the Swiss are usually very good at upholding treaties.]

Polanski was accused of plying the underage girl with champagne and part of a Quaalude pill during a modeling shoot in 1977, and raping her. He was initially indicted on six felony counts, including rape by use of drugs, child molesting and sodomy.

He pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of unlawful sexual intercourse. In exchange, the judge agreed to drop the remaining charges and sentence him to prison for a 90-day psychiatric evaluation.(link)

Nice leade eh? That's paragraphs 14 & 15, not para 1. Although the article is nicely written and leaves only small things out, the habit of putting the 'good stuff' so far down is annoying. Most people don't tend to read all of articles (whether online or in print) so it's easy to do this and misinform almost everyone. Whether the writer(s) did it or an editory, I don't know, but it's not honest.
