These are the admitted facts.
He served alchohol and drugs to a 13 girl, putting her life at risk, for the express purpose to sexually molest her.
He then raped and sodomized her. She was not consenting at all.
He stipulated to these facts and pleaded guilty.
He was offered a compromise plea deal which is often done to spare the victim. It was incredibly short for such a heinius crime. (Was he given special treatment because of his fame by the prosecutors?)
It was so short, the judge rejected it.
Scared, he fled the country to avoid justice.
Why so long, 30 years?
France and other countries have refused to send him back. He has convinced them that he is an innocent victim of flawed USA justice.
During the Clinton Presidency, the pursuit of him was halted. It was restarted late in the Bush presidency.
He publicly planned a trip to Switz. allowing the USA authorities to ask for help. They arrested him.
Opinion: The guys is a pig of the worse kind and deserves this arrest. And hopefully will become an example to other child molesters, you don't get away with the crime, you will be caught, you will have to pay a price.
