    Russian Pianist Charged with Raping Thai Boy
    Acclaimed Musician and Conductor Mikhail Vasillievich Pletnev Calls Allegations a "Misunderstanding"


    (AP) Internationally acclaimed Russian pianist and conductor Mikhail Vasillievich Pletnev has been charged with raping a 14-year-old boy in a Thai beach town, police said Wednesday.

    Mikhail Vasilievich Pletnev, the founder of the Russian National Orchestra, was charged Tuesday with rape and appearing in compromising photographs with several other boys, said police Lt. Col. Creetha Tankanarat.

    He was released on a 300,000 baht ($9,000) bail, ordered to report to the court every 12 days and is banned from contacting any witnesses in the case. He could face up to 20 years in jail and a fine of up to 40,000 baht ($1,200) if found guilty.

    "This whole thing is a misunderstanding," said Pletnev in a brief telephone interview with The Associated Press but did not elaborate. He said he had no intention of leaving Thailand and was still residing in Pattaya.

    I am so glad to see Thailand finally starting to address this issue, it is so corrupt there and child prostitution is rampant.....

    As far as this guy goes, sure it is just a big misunderstanding someone photoshopped those pics ...

    mysticrose, that was going to be my question. What kind of misunderstanding? How do you explain compromising photos with underage boys?
