Exiled director Roman Polanski is ready to return stateside to settle that controversial child rape case from 1977.
In case you need a refresher, the Oscar winning filmmaker fled to Europe after pleading guilty to U.S. charges for having sex with a 13-year-old girl at Jack Nicholson's home in 1977.
At the time, Polanski made a plea deal with the now-deceased judge Laurence Rittenband to spend 48 days at Chino State Prison… and after he was released after serving 42 of those 48 days, Rittenband had a change of heart and ordered Polanski to spend up to 50 years behind bars.
Cue Polanski packing his bags and fleeing to Europe as a fugitive.
