Switzerland will not extradite Roman Polanski

Posted on

Switzerland’s Justice Ministry announced today that it will not extradite Roman Polanski to the United States, the Associated Press reports. Swiss police arrested the director last September due to an outstanding American warrant; he was convicted here in 1977 of having unlawful sex with a minor but left the country before sentencing.
