Max Factor Heir’s Prison Sentence Rescinded
[Reuters] But the judge declined to give 49-year-old Andrew Luster a new trial. Luster was convicted in 2003 in absentia of 86 counts including rape of an intoxicated person, rape of an unconscious person and sexual battery. He fled to Mexico during the trial.
The curious rationale Ventura County Superior Court Judge Kathryne Stoltz judge proffered for throwing out the original ruling is that she decided that the first judge wasn't specific enough in his explanation of the sentencing. Absolute, utter [expletive]. The California District Attorney should be looking into Judge Stoltz's off-shore finances immediately.
It's worth noting that Luster videotaped himself raping and sexually molesting three women - two of which were either intoxicated or unconscious.
