Charges in Mexico Dropped Against Bounty Hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman … Justice Prevails


A Mexican judge, Jose Alberto Montes,  has dropped criminal charges against bounty Dogchapmanhunter, 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.

      Great post, keep up the good work, i have added your site to my rss feed reader

      I appreciate the work that he does, but he broke the law to do it! Irony? Hypocrisy? He will lecture people about doing the right thing, and while we may not like the fact that there was a rapist free, it doesn’t excuse violating the law yourself.
      SM: I some times wonder whether the greater good was served by his breaking of the law. Some times one has to do the wrong thing in order to do the right. Just a thought.

      Im confused here. Isnt it not in fact a bailbondsmans primary objective to release accused rapist/ criminals back in to society for a dollar amount. Im in no way stating that it is my opinion that every person in the US who is faced with criminal charges shouldnt be able to secure terms of release from custody that would allow them to obtain council for a defense to the charges and also not to suffer financial hardship by being terminated from where they may be employed based on an absence. Being that the charges filed be proven to me wrong. But lets not forget that IT IS THE BAILBONDS THAT EMPLOYS “DOG” THAT RELEASES ACCUSED RAPIST FROM CUSTODY IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT IS CLEAR THAT THE MEDIA IN AMERICA IS SERIOUSLY MISGUIDED TO LABEL A BAILBONDSMAN A SORT OF HERO. THEY ARE JUST PEOPLE WHO LIKE MANY NEED TO MAKE A LIVING.
