Chicago Criminal attorney comments on Switzerland's refusal to extradite Roman Polanski

This Chicago Criminal attorney has posted here, here, and here about sex crimes.  Earlier today, Switzerland refused to extradite Roman Polanski back to the states.  You may recall Mr. Polanski fled after pleading guilty to having sex with a thirteen year old girl.

 The Swiss government's decision Monday to free Roman Polanski outraged Los Angeles prosecutors and U.S. officials but effectively ended a legal odyssey that has lurched along with periodic eruptions of public furor since 1977, when the famed director was accused of raping a 13-year-old girl.
Polanski will not be extradited to the United States to face sentencing for having unlawful sex with the girl, allowing him to live freely in Switzerland and France, where he has resided since he fled the United States 32 years ago.
Well here’s one sex offender who won’t be required to register as a sex offender.
