Judge to rule later in Roman Polanski sex case

A Los Angeles judge says he will issue a written ruling about director Roman Polanski's requests to end his long-running sex abuse case.

Polanski's attorney, Harland Braun, argued Monday that Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon should give some indication of how Polanski would be sentenced if he returned to Los Angeles.

The Oscar winner remains a fugitive after he pleaded guilty to unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl and then fled on the eve of sentencing in 1989.

A prosecutor argued that Polanski is asking for special treatment and trying to dictate the terms of his sentence from afar.

Gordon gave no indication about how he would rule but said he thought Braun's allegations that previous judges had mistreated the director warranted a full hearing.
