Honolulu, Hawaii — I introduced a House Concurrent Resolution requesting that the Hawaii State Legislature take a stand for “Dog” Duane Chapman and ask the government and courts of Mexico to drop its extradition charges against him.

In 2006, Chapman was arrested in Mexico for capturing Max Factor heir, Andrew Luster and bringing him back to the United States to serve the 124 years prison term handed down by the State of California.


‘Dog’ Chapman is a hero for what he has done for America, but has been portrayed as a villain for what the Mexican authorities have accused him of doing, by bringing serial rapist Luster back across the border.

The hearing on the resolution requesting the President of Mexico and the Second District Court and the Second District Court of Guadalajara, to drop extradition charges against TV Bounty Hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman, is scheduled to be heard by the International Affairs Committee, Wednesday, February 28, 2007 in Room 329, at 8:30 a.m.

Testimony may be faxed to Committee Chair, Representative Rida Cabanilla at 808-586-6081.

Justice has been served in the capture of Andrew Luster by ‘Dog’ Chapman. Chapman is a member of our Hawaii community and deserves our support. This resolution is the very least we can do for him. We invite all supporters to come to the State Capitol to testify for him.
