The fact that David Caruso's fugitive Austrian stalker has chosen a life of crime and abandoned her own children to do so is so sad that it bears repeating whenever similar cases draw comparisons. Today it has been widely reported that Roman Polanski, the academy award winning film director, has sought to end his exile by filing a Motion to Dismiss the case against him with a Los Angeles Court. Presiding Judge Peter Espinoza denied Polanski's Motion on the grounds that Polanski has no standing to file it as long as he remains a fugitive. However, the Judge stated if Polanski would return by May 7, 2009, he would agree to re-hear it.
Polanski fled to France in 1978 after failing to appear for a Los Angeles court hearing after he plead guilty to having sex with a 13 year-old girl. Polanski's French citizenship makes it impossible for the U.S. to extradite him, however, if Polanski ever tries to enter the U.S. he will be arrested. For those who claim this is not related, bear in mind that Schnitzer has posted pornographic comments about David Caruso's two-year old son on an Internet site.
Polanski has waited over thirty years to set foot on U.S. soil. How long will Heidemarie Schnitzer wait before it dawns on her what she has given up to pursue a life of crime? Two children that we know of and a homeland she loves are now memories for Schnitzer. Before it's too late, all Schnitzer needs to do is make a phone call to her lawyer and let him know she's ready to plea bargain. But will she? Pride always goes before a fall.
Heidemarie Schnitzer remains at large on Mexico's Baja peninsula wanted on an International Warrant for threatening to murder CSI Miami's David Caruso and for fleeing Austria to avoid prosecution thereof. Schnitzer is armed and considered to be extremely dangerous. Please do not attempt to apprehend this woman.
