Free As A Bird? Roman Polanski's Bail Request Granted*

UPDATE:  Variety reports Roman Polanski will be kept under housse arrest and under electronic monitoring at his Swiss chalet.  

He will, however, remain n jail until authorities decide whether or not to appeal his release.

Maybe there are all sorts of conditions…we’ll update as necessary.
