Director Roman Polanski has been in a Swiss jail for over two months, but beginning Friday, he’ll be under house arrest in his luxurious ski chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland.  He will not be able to leave the compound and he must wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.  While he is under house arrest, officials in Switzerland will be deciding whether they should send him back to the United States for having sex with a 13-year old girl in 1977.  U.S. authorities would like him to be sent back to Los Angeles and sentenced, as he has been a fugitive for 31 years.
