D.A. wants Polanski testimony to stay sealed
Prosecutors asking judge to reject his attorneys' requestProsecutors are asking a Los Angeles judge to reject a request by Roman Polanski's attorneys to unseal transcripts of closed-door testimony in the case.
Polanski's attorneys want a judge to unseal testimony earlier this year by the original prosecutor handling the case, Roger Gunson. They say it will help their efforts to fight Polanski's extradition from Switzerland, where he remains on house arrest.
Prosecutors on Thursday argued in a court filing that Polanski's motion should be rejected because he remains a fugitive.
A hearing on the issue has been scheduled for Monday afternoon.
Los Angeles prosecutors want the Oscar-winning director returned to face sentencing on a charge he had unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.
