Convicted rapist Andrew Luster may be back in custody, but he still has no right to appeal guilty verdicts because he flouted the law by fleeing his trial and hiding in a foreign country, a state appellate court ruled Wednesday. Meanwhile, the bounty hunter who captured Luster and is now awaiting trial in Mexico on charges that he unlawfully detained the rapist returned to the United States and told reporters Wednesday he does not believe he broke any laws.
