Polanski Gets Out of Jail Friday on $4.5 Million Bail

Polanski Gets Out of Jail Friday on $4.5 Million Bail

As expected, filmmaker Roman Polanski will get out of jail on $4.5 million bail. Swiss justice officials announced Wednesday that the director can move to his Gstaad chalet at 1 PM on Friday. Here’s the LAT:

A court will eventually rule whether Polanski should be extradited to Los Angeles to face sentencing for having illegal sex with a 13-year-old more than three decades ago. Swiss justice officials repeatedly had denied his bail requests, saying he was a flight risk. Under the terms of the bail, Polanski, 76, will have his phone calls monitored as well. Gstaad, a village of 2,500 with mountain views, has long been known as a celebrity hangout, having been home to Elizabeth Taylor, Roger Moore and David Niven, among others.
