A California judge threw out a 124-year prison term handed down a decade ago to an heir to the Max Factor fortune for raping three women and related crimes, ruling on Monday that the original sentencing had been improper.

Andrew Luster will receive a new sentencing hearing in April but the judge declined to give the 49-year-old a new trial.

There are two criminal justice systems in the United States. One is for people with wealth, fame or influence who can afford to hire top-notch attorneys. The other justice system is for everybody else.

Are you kidding me? Why? Perhaps this really is the 'other' criminal justice system - the one for the wealthy -- I just don't get it. I understand that the statute of Lady Justice is blind[folded] but sometimes I wonder just how blindfolded she really is.
Horrible and unfair and unjust -- and I guess, once again, the victim[s] don't matter.

I think it's a victory that this guy even had charges pressed against him, let alone got sentenced for his crimes. Anyone but me remember Alex Kelly? Or O.J. Simpson?

So I heard, but they are just talking about a bew sentencing hearing on what may be a technicality. They aren't giving him a free lunch and sending him home.
