The Judge does not have the same breadth of information regarding the case that the defense and the prosecutor have. Had the judge not reneged, Polanski would have received a "time served" offer. The judge wanted him to serve multiple years in prison.
    Yes they do. They have full access to everything, and it's always up to the judge's discretion to reject a plea agreement.

    Welcome to the law.

    The punishment agreed to in the plea was completely inadequate for the nature of the crime. The only mistake the judge made was allowing Polanski to remain on bail pending sentencing.

    Do you believe that "time served" was sufficient punishment for confessed baby-raper?

    No, it was very unprofessional for the DA to make such a deal.

    It was very professional for the judge to ensure the punishment is sufficient to the crime, thereby correcting the error of the DA....whose job it is to get the criminals convicted and serving the maximum time possible for their crime.

    I really wonder this also. The guy has admitted to it. If that wasn't enough his DNA was found on the girls panties. The woman was 13 at the time. And yet just because some people think that the judge should have accepted the deal they think that this pervert should get off on the charge. It's down right disgusting.

    This SOB should be strung up and made a eunuch.

    I guess I can lead a horse to water, but I cannot make it drink, eh?
    Perhaps if you had better skills in the English language you could make yourself better understood? I am hardly surprised that you would think it is everyone BUT you.

    Usually when someone responds to someone and types “you”, it is natural and logical to assume they meant “you.”

    This is generally true. Unless they know a person or their posting habits. Then it's easy to tell the difference. But since you can't possibly know everyone or their posting habits I've gotten into the habit of making a disclaimer...much like what I am going to do now...

    The "you" in my post is meant to be interpreted generally and is not directed at you Truth Detector, or anyone else in particular.

    If he's guilty, then why shouldn't he be sentenced for the crime? Just because he's rich or a famous director?

    Yeah because Charles Manson would have never killed a pregnant woman otherwise.....

    He had sex with a teenage girl, i.e. a young woman biologically speaking. To call him a baby-raper is ludicrous.
