At $590,000 bail, he won't be able to post and skip to France like Roman Polansky did! Thirty years later and he's probably sipping tea in his mansion.

WINDOW

A window is a transparent opening in a wall (or other solid and opaque surface) that allows the passage of light and, if not closed or sealed, air and sound. Windows are usually glazed or covered in some other transparent or translucent material. Windows are held in place by frames, which prevent them from collapsing in.

Primitive windows were just holes in a wall. Later, windows were covered with animal hide, cloth, or wood. Shutters that could be opened and closed came next. Over time, windows were built that both protected the inhabitants from the elements and transmitted light: mullioned glass windows, which joined multiple small pieces of glass with leading, paper windows, flattened pieces of translucent animal horn, and plates of thinly sliced marble. The Romans were the first to use glass for windows. In Alexandria ca. 100 AD, cast glass windows, albeit with poor optical properties, began to appear. Mullioned glass windows were the windows of choice among European well-to-do, whereas paper windows were economical and widely used in ancient China, Korea and Japan. In England, glass became common in the windows of ordinary homes only in the early 17th century whereas windows made up of panes of flattened animal horn were used as early as the 14th century in Northern Britain. Modern-style floor-to-ceiling windows became possible only after the industrial glass making process was perfected.

Does it matter at all that at the time of these alleged crimes, Shane was 20 and his victim was 14 or 15? I get that it's illegal but I wonder if there would be any complaint at all if he weren't famous?

I am completely shocked and find this very hard to believe. I mean...I thought all these artsy-fartsy dancing/choreographers dudes were spermgarglers...and here one turns up that was interested in girls. If he had stuck with the lispers he'd be free as a bird tonight.
