Oscar-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski has once again evaded extradition to the United States, nearly four decades after pleading guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

This time around, it was Poland that refused to return him to the United States, though it is only the latest country which has refused extradition throughout the years. With Polish prosecutors deciding not to challenge a court ruling against extradition, Polanski is now free to work in the country where he grew up.

A judge last month ruled against extradition out of concern that Polanski would not receive a fair trial in the United States.
