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)
