** FILE ** In this April 24, 2010, photo, film director Roman Polanski walks on the balcony of his chalet, named "Milky Way," in Gstaad, Switzerland, where he was under house arrest. The Swiss government declared renowned film director Roman Polanski a free man on Monday, July 12, 2010, after rejecting a U.S. request to extradite him on a charge of having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl. The Swiss mostly blamed U.S. authorities for failing to provide confidential testimony about Polanski's sentencing procedure in 1977-78.  (AP Photo/Laurent Cipriani, File)
