Roman Polanski Out of Jail for Medical Treatment

He's not out of the woods, but director Roman Polanski is out of jail, at least temporarily. The director's French lawyer says that the 76-year-old director is receiving medical treatment for an undisclosed ailment, according to Reuters.
"All I know is that he has been taken from prison for medical attention. I don't know where he is or when he will be returned to prison," lawyer Herve Temime said. Wherever the director is, he's still under supervision. "He is still in detention. If necessary he has all the medical care (needed). It can be in prison or in hospital, in general,"
