WHO LET THE DOG OUT, MEXICO "THE DOG IS FREE"
Here was the problem, this is old news......GUADALAJARA, Mexico — A federal court has cleared the way for TV bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman to be extradited to face charges in Mexico, but the decision can still be appealed. Norma Jara, a spokeswoman for the second district court in Guadalajara, said Thursday the court rejected Chapman's injunction request, ruling there was no reason not to try him on charges he illegally arrested Max Factor makeup heir and convicted rapist Andrew Luster in 2003. "We only just heard about the Mexican court's decision to continue with the extradition proceedings, and are still in shock," Chapman and his wife, Beth, said in a statement issued Thursday night in Honolulu. "Our attorneys have not even been formally informed of the court's decision, as of yet. We are obviously deeply disappointed and fearful of what will happen, and are currently absorbing the news and discussing our options at this time. "Once Chapman has been formally notified of the decision, he has five days to file an appeal that could block his extradition. Mexican authorities have already asked for Chapman's extradition from Hawaii. Chapman's lawyers argue he would not be guaranteed a fair trial in Mexico. MORE OF THE STORY
