"Los Angeles County's top prosecutor responded Thursday to criticism from Roman Polanski's supporters over his office's pursuit of the case, saying fugitives must be brought to justice and that the famed director committed a crime.
""It's about completing justice," Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley said. "Justice is not complete when someone leaves the jurisdiction of the court."
"Cooley took issue with attempts to minimize Polanski's admission that he had sex with a 13-year-old girl, particularly movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's recent description of the offense as a "so-called crime."
""Mr. Polanski pled guilty to a crime, so apparently Mr. Polanski believes there's a crime," Cooley said. "There are still five or six other much more serious charges pending that have yet to be resolved.""
