A Mexican judge, Jose Alberto Montes, has dropped criminal charges against bounty hunter, Duane “Dog” Chapman due to a technicality. Duane “Dog” Chapman had previously been arrested this past September on a Mexican warrant stemming from his 2003 capture of fugitive convicted sex offender rapist and Max Factor cosmetics heir Andrew Luster. Bounty hunting is considered illegal in Mexico. However, the statute of limitations has expired on the case.
Look for Brook Hart, the attorney for “Dog” the bounty hunter to be on The Dana Pretzer Show this coming Tuesday evening.
It is hard to believe that the only thing standing in the way of “The Dog” and a Mexican prison is a technicality. The absurdity of a man who brought a heinous rapist like Andrew Luster to justice would in turn be facing jail time himself borders on unbelievable. Yes, bounty hunting is considered illegal. However, so are many other things in Mexico that authorities seem to take a blind eye to. Technicality or not, at least Duane “Dog” Chapman is a free man.
Press release from Duane “Dog” Chapman:
“Viva La Mexico,” exclaimed Duane
“Dog” Chapman, star of the number one rated A&E show “Dog the Bounty
Hunter,” expressing his appreciation for the Mexican legal system, as all
charges against him were dismissed by the First Criminal Court in Puerto
Vallarta, Mexico, earlier this week.
