Geneva, Switzerland - A tribunal stared at the infamous movie producer for thirty seconds, after hearing his heartfelt pleas that he'd return - this time for sure - if he was released on bail.
After the thirty seconds of looking at him incredulously, the chief magistrate said some gibberish in Swiss, which translated into a real language means, "Dude, you raped a kid and ran."
It is believed that the magistrate is refering to the rather glaring fact that the producer did not simply "have sex" with a 13 year old, as some Hollywood perverts like to say. The producer did in actual fact accepted a plea agreement several decades ago in which it was acknowledged that the sex he had with the underage girl was not consensual.
Or what regular non-Hollywood folks call "rape".
Also stunningly obvious, was that the man who had skipped out on bail decades ago would probably be likely to do so again. Especially as France is dying to have him back, where he is a national hero.
A odd emotional appeal was made at the hearing, when it was pointed out by the producer's defense attorney's that if an admitted child rapist was not given bail, those who invested in the child rapist might lose money.
"Tough luck", the magistrate said. "Those actors and investors knew who he was. They just didn't care. Well, neither do I."
