A court spokesman says a Los Angeles judge has scheduled a hearing Wednesday in Roman Polanski's criminal case.

Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini says Judge Peter Espinoza will convene a status conference at 3 p.m. PST.

It's the first time the 30-year-old sex case will be back in court since a state appeals court last month rejected Polanski's bid to have it dismissed.

Polanski is under house arrest at his Swiss chalet. He was arrested in late September on a fugitive warrant.

Swiss authorities have not yet ruled on whether to extradite Polanski to Los Angeles. The "Chinatown" director fled the U.S. in 1978 on the eve of sentencing after pleading guilty to having unlawful sex with a minor in 1977.

A phone message left for Polanski's attorney, Chad Hummel, was not immediately returned.
