Roman Polanski has a lot of legal catching up to do. The 76-year-old Rosemary’s Baby director, found guilty in 1977 of having illegal sex with a minor, lost his appeal on Tuesday to be released from a Swiss jail in spite of offers to post bail, enter into house arrest, and use his extravagant Swiss chalet as collateral, which lawyers say represents more than half of his wealth, which Polanski needs to send his two children to school. The Swiss federal court say none of these offers are enough and that that it will keep Polanski incarcerated due to his high risk of flight based on his ability to obtain a fake passport or escape by private plane or helicopter. Polanski has ten days to appeal again, and the U.S. must file for extradition by Nov. 25--almost two months from the day he was arrested in Switzerland.
