He'd look like a fucking idiot if he ended up in prison for 10 years because he was too courageous to just hide the fuck away from Czech Republic.
The thing that people overlook is that his touring career would be virtually finished if he didn't face the trial. He couldn't tour in whichever country has an extradition treaty with the Czech Republic and that would hurt his finances and the band badly. Plus he'd always have to live in fear because I believe that the US has such a treaty.
