Last week, the founder of the Russian National Orchestra, and Grammy winning pianist Mikhail Pletnev was arrested in Thailand after he was accused of raping a 14 year old boy. When police arrested him they also found lots of other photographs of him in sexual positions with other underage boys.
Pletnev was released on bail last week but showed up in court today and will have to show up every 12 days until the case is settled. For the first time since his arrest he spoke to reporters and said that this is all lies and just all one big misunderstanding. Uh huh. Probably research or something like that.
The Grammy he won back in 2005 was for an arrangement of Cinderella.
