    Can he even be charged and tried if he's not in the country?

    He can be criminally charged by the US authorities for any crimes committed on US soil. However, the US authorities would then need to apply for extradition. IIRC while US and France have an extradition treaty, France does not extradite their own citizens (Polanski, who you mentioned earlier, is a good example of this policy in practice). In other words, Morgan would not be extradited to the US from France.

    I don't think so. If the US had an extradition arrangement with France then he could be arrested in France and extradited to the US to face charges, I believe, but if I'm remembering rightly France is one of the countries that doesn't extradite criminals to the US because the death penalty is still in force in some states.

    ETA: okokok1777 is way more on top of this than I am so go with their explanation.

    I suppose the only punishment will be commercial then. That's sad
