Leonardo DiCaprio Granted Restraining Order!

wenn2924014ld.jpg

Great news!

Leonardo DiCaprio was granted a restraining order against Aretha Wilson who was accused of attacking the actor in the face with a beer bottle back in 2005.

He was at a private Hollywood party when the 40-year-old woman hit the side of his head with a broken beer bottle, sending him to the hospital to get stitches on his face and neck.

She fled to Canada, but she was extradited to LA recently to face a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. She has been ordered not to be in contact with or come within 500 yards of Leo.

Wilson's bail has also been raised from $60,000 to $150,000 because there is concern of her "willingness and ability to come back to court."

Yikes!

wenn2570420jb__opt.jpg

Finally! It's taken months for this shiz to go through!

We reported way back in January that the woman responsible for slashing Leonardo DiCaprio's face with a wine glass in 2005 was being extradited from Canada to face trial in the states, and it's finally happened!

Aretha Wilson took a flight with authorities into El Lay last night, and is currently in custody.

Phew! Let's hope that the crazy is given plastic utensils this time around!

LA District Attorney Still Seeking Polanski's Extradition

Filed under: Legal Matters

We have no idea why the Swiss are keeping him!

District Attorney Steve Cooley is pissed that Switzerland will not release Roman Polanski to California for sentencing, but if he is arrested anywhere else, extradition is imminent.

Cooley said:

“I am deeply disappointed that the Swiss authorities denied the request to extradite Roman Polanski. Our office complied fully with all of the factual and legal requirements of the extradition treaty and requests by the U.S. and Swiss Departments of Justice and State.

We will discuss with the Department of Justice the extradition of Roman Polanski if he’s arrested in a cooperative jurisdiction.

“We only formally request when we are notified by a government that the fugitive is in their country. The request was filed immediately by this office after the Swiss notified us of Polanski’s expected arrival at the Zurich film festival in September 2009.”

Failure to extradite Polanski is a “disservice to justice and other victims as a whole. To justify their finding to deny extradition on an issue that is unique to California law regarding conditional examination of a potentially unavailable witness is a rejection of the competency of the California courts. The Swiss could not have found a smaller hook on which to hang their hat.”

Sad. So much for justice!

Polanski Will Not Be Extradited!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersPolitik

So much for being a neutral country, Switzerland!

This morning, Swiss officials announced that Roman Polanski won't be extradited to the United States to face the child sex charges against him.

The decision, according to the Swiss, was made after months of waiting for the U.S. to provide a confidential testimony in the case from 1977-1978. The U.S. rejected this request and now the Swiss are calling Roman a free man. This could be the potential end to the U.S.' three-decade pursuit of Roman, and if he travels back to France, he is safe under their citizen laws and now, with all the trouble over Switzerland's deliberations it's unlikely any other country is going to go after him.

And so another child sex offender walks around free in the world. Amazing what dirty politics (and we'd wager a hefty bribe to the Switzerland government) can do!

Way to go, Swiss!

Decision Time, Polanski!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

Will he or won't he? That is the question!

Swiss officials announced over the weekend that a decision on whether to extradite Roman Polanski to the United States will soon be made.

No further details were released, but a justice ministry spokesman assured the press that “it won’t be long” before Polanski knows his fate.

Let's hope his fate includes a one-way ticket to a Los Angeles courtroom.

It's about a time, don't U think?
