Guilty Priest Freed

A Catholic priest who pleaded guilty to rape and sodomy of a 13 year old girl in the 1970's, and was accused of six offenses, plea bargained to 42 days in a psychiatric hospital.  That's not the end of the story.

He heard rumors that he was going to be retried.  He fled the US.  He landed in Switzerland where he was placed under arrest.  It was house arrest until his trial for extradition.  The verdict was favorable towards him.  He will not be extradited back to the US.  He is safe.  He is free.

What do you think of that?

Well, think again, because I made a mistake.  I said Catholic Priest, but it should have been Film Director Roman Polanski.
