Polanski

Defence attorney Jeralyn Merritt of Talk Left takes an in-depth look at the Roman Polanski case today and concludes that a defence strategy focussing on allegations of prosecutorial and judicial misconduct may ultimately succeed in keeping the filmmaker out of U.S. prison:

In my view, this case has been mangled beyond repair, by a DA initially so over-invested in the case he was removed from it by higher-ups in his office, and a judge, who while now deceased, left behind his many ethically questionable and arguably illegal actions to speak for themselves.

Free Roman.
