A Polish court on Friday decided against extraditing to the United States Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski, who pleaded guilty in 1977 to raping a 13-year-old girl but left the country before sentencing.

The court ruled “inadmissibility in extraditing Polish-French citizen Roman Polanski to the US,” Judge Dariusz Mazur said.

The decision can still be appealed, according to Beata Gorszczyk, a spokeswoman for the court in the southern city of Krakow.
