Polanski arrested for child rape

... and his lawyer claims he should be released because he "... obviously poses no danger to society and [his] artistic and personal reputation are clearly established". Yeah he's a wonderful man, except for that one time (that we know of) where he raped a 13 year old girl:

Ms Geimer said that after plying her with champagne and drugs and taking nude pictures, Polanski had sex despite her resistance and requests to be taken home.

But I'm sure he's normally a lovely guy, and we all make mistakes right?
