Roman Polanski granted bail


Roman Polanski is one step closer to getting out on bail.  The Swiss Criminal Court has accepted $4.5 million to allow Polanski to be transferred to house arrest, which means he’ll be staying here:

instead of in a jail cell where he belongs.  The move can be appealed by the Swiss government within 10 days.  If the tranfer does go through, he’ll be monitored by an electronic bracelet.  Their reasoning for the move:

“The 76-year-old appellant is married and the father of two minors,” the court said as it considered Polanski’s offer of a cash bail secured by his apartment in Paris. “It can be assumed that as a responsible father he will, especially in view of his advanced age, attach greater importance to the financial security of his family than a younger person.”
