Court Decision

This was sent to me by A&E as an update on what the Court ruled. Nothing ever goes right for this family.

As a fan of Dog the Bounty Hunter we wanted to update you on the latest
developments with Dog and his posse...


A breaking news Associated Press report revealed this morning stated that a
Mexican federal court has denied Duane “Dog” Chapman’s injunction request and
has ruled that the star of A&E’s Dog the Bounty Hunter should be extradited and
stand trial for deprivation of liberty – a charge stemming from Dog and his posse’s 2003
capture of convicted serial rapist, Andrew Luster in Puerto Vallarta.

Mexican authorities had asked for Chapman's extradition from Hawaii and U.S. Marshals
took Dog, son Leland Chapman and associate Tim Chapman into custody back on
September 14th for their role in bringing Luster to justice. Dog, Leland and Tim were released
on bail and have been awaiting a ruling on their request to stop the extradition proceedings,
which would otherwise require them to face trial in Mexico.

"Our attorneys have not even been formally informed of the court's decision, as of yet," Dog
and wife Beth Chapman said. "We are obviously deeply disappointed and fearful of what will
happen, and are currently absorbing the news and discussing our options at this time."

Andrew Luster, the notorious heir to the Max Factor cosmetics fortune, was convicted of
drugging and raping three women over a four year span. During his trial in 2003, Luster fled
the country, leading to an international manhunt. In June 2003, Dog and his team tracked
the fugitive Luster in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where he was living under an alias, and seized
him. Luster was subsequently found guilty in the US and is currently serving a 124 year prison
sentence. At that time, in June 2003, Dog, Tim and Leland were arrested by the Mexican
authorities for unlawful deprivation of liberty and released on bail.
