Turkish Court Brings Charges Against Sarah Ferguson For 2008 Documentary

A Turkish court has charged Sarah Ferguson with violating the law in the way she and ITV acquired footage for a 2008 documentary about the treatment of orphans in Turkish orphanages. If convicted, she could be sentenced to more than 22 years in prison. Sources for the UK government indicated, however, that the former wife of the Duke of York is unlikely to be extradited to Turkey because the offense she is charged with in Turkey is not a crime in the UK.
