Roman Polanski gets bail -- if it sticks, will he skip again? [POLL]

November 25, 2009 | 10:04 am

Bail in the amount of $4.5 million has been approved for director Roman Polanski, who's been held in Zurich, Switzerland, facing extradition  to Los Angeles to be sentenced for unlawful intercourse with a 13-year-old girl more than three decades ago.

But he's not out just yet -- the Swiss government has 10 days to appeal the decision.

Swiss Justice Ministry spokesman Folco Galli told the UK Daily Mail that Polanski is considered a "high flight risk."

Gee, ya think?

Seriously, what do you think? The Ministry's Office of Absolutely Accurate Online Statistics wants to know.

(The poll is a simple one -- share your thoughts in the comments.)
