Dog Chapman Reacts To Charges Being Dropped

Statement From Dog Chapman:

“I am satisfied with the outcome of the Nguyen case, and have no “humbug” feelings towards him,” said Chapman. “It’s my job to find ‘em and fix ‘em – not put more charges on a fugitive. That’s not my style. Nguyen apologized to me when I captured him, and I’m cool with that.”

Deep Thoughts By Dog

American bounty hunter and bail bondsman Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman gave an interview with Esquire that could yield a book of quotes to stand alongside the best of them. Among the accumulated wisdom the 55 year-old shares are:

-”My grandfather told me years ago, “Watch your fantasies, because you’re the kind of person who will live them.”

-”Selling a vacuum cleaner to a farmer is like trying to sell the devil a match.”

-”The closest thing to hell on earth is prison. It’s the worst experience I’ve ever had in my life. Besides death.”

-”When I look in the mirror, I’d rather be studly than sexy. Matt Lauer can be sexy. I’ll be studly.”

-”I speak to animals a lot. Crows will come to me. I’m like that.”

-”We as men need to make sure our women are fully satisfied. I went to a marriage counselor one time — I was young, she was beautiful — and I told her, “I just stay on longer because I want the girl to get off first, and then I want to touch them and love them.” Within two weeks, I was screwing the sex therapist, right? No — this is a true story!”

-”If I could bring my daughter back, I’d hold a snuff can over a bear’s ass for five years in a Texas prison.”

Chapman — who was a gang member with 18 convictions for armed robbery, which he insists he’s innocent of — launched his reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter in August, 2004 .

Dog Traces Fugitive To El Savador

Bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman will return from the Mainland today with evidence that convicted sex offender Frank Lefrandt Jr. left Honolulu and ended up in El Salvador — via Los Angeles and Phoenix, Chapman’s publicist said yesterday.

Although Chapman will give authorities ATM and other records that show that Lefrandt is in San Salvador, El Salvador, he will not pursue Lefrandt without a provisional arrest warrant to enter El Salvador, publicist Mona Wood said yesterday.

In June 2003, Chapman, his son Leland Chapman and fellow bounty hunter Tim Chapman, who is not related, faced criminal charges in Mexico for “unlawful deprivation of liberty” when they captured a fugitive serial rapist, Max Factor heir Andrew Luster, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

A Mexican judge eventually dismissed their case, but the Chapmans had also faced extradition and arrest warrants that were issued in the United States while their case was on appeal.

Chapman is the star of the Honolulu-based A&E reality TV show, “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” but the show was not in production while Chapman followed Lefrandt’s trail on the Mainland and into El Salvador, Wood said.

It is likely, however, that A&E crews would follow Chapman into El Salvador if he gets permission to go there, Wood said.

a former missionary

Chapman also found out that Lefrandt served as a Mormon missionary in Guatemala 30 years ago.

“He may know the area, but it is definitely not going to be a vacation for him,” Chapman said in a statement released by Wood.

On Tuesday, a Circuit Court judge ordered forfeiture of $100,000 bail posted by bondsman James Lindblad for Lefrandt after Lefrandt failed to turn himself in to prison authorities.

Fugitive leaves bail bondsman in lurch

By Jim Dooley
Advertiser Staff Writer

It’s been a roller-coaster week for bail bondsman James Lindblad.

On Tuesday, a Circuit Court judge ordered forfeiture of $100,000 bail posted by Lindblad for convicted sex offender Frank Lefrandt Jr.

The order came after Lefrandt failed to turn himself in to prison authorities last Friday. His whereabouts are unknown.

“It’s a terrible thing for his (Lefrandt’s) family,” Lindblad said. “First the criminal charges, now this. He’s married, with five children. They put up their house as collateral for the bond.”

Lindblad, owner of A-1 Bail Bonds, said he’s enlisted Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman to find Lefrandt.

“We work together sometimes,” Lindblad said. “He’s on the Mainland now, looking for Frank.”

Good news came Wednesday night on another case that has gnawed at Lindblad for more than a decade. U.S. Marshals announced they had captured fugitive Hawai’i sex offender Michael Andrew Stephens in Mexico.

Lindblad forfeited $42,000 bail posted for Stephens in 1995 when he fled the state while awaiting retrial on charges of kidnaping and sexually assaulting a teenage boy.

“I’ve written more than 20,000 bonds in my career here, and this is the only guy that ever got away,” Lindblad said. “I always knew he was in Mexico. I almost caught him there once, but he slipped away.”

Lindblad said he also partnered with Chapman in trying to track down Stephens.

“We found out in 1996 that he was traveling between Palm Springs and Mexico,” he said.

“We got an an address for him in Mexico and notified the authorities, but when they got there, he had slipped away.”

Marshals and Mexico customs officials located Stephens this month after he was profiled earlier this year on the “America’s Most Wanted” television show.

He was helping run a restaurant called Casa Bahia in Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa, Mexico.

Stephens was known in the area as “Will,” according to messages posted on a Zihuatanejo Internet message board since Stephens was arrested.

Stephens is being deported by the Mexican government to Houston, where he will be held for extradition to Hawai’i.

He was convicted here in 1990 of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy. Prosecutors sought a 20-year prison sentence in that case, calling Stephens a danger to society.

Stephens had been investigated earlier for alleged sex assaults of teenage boys, and five days before he was arrested in the 1990 case, police charged him with assaulting another teenager at the Hawai’i Kai boat ramp, according to court records.

Charges in that case were dropped after Stephens was convicted in the 1990 case.

Friends and business associates of Stephens wrote letters of recommendation on his behalf to the court in the 1990 case, and he was sentenced to five years of probation. He was re-indicted on new charges of sexually assaulting a teenage victim in 1993.

Jurors could not agree on a verdict on the assault charges, convicting Stephen only of promoting liquor to a minor.

After staging a fake disappearance at sea, Stephens fled the state while awaiting retrial on the 1993 sex assault charges.

Dog Headed To California In Search Of Child Abuser

[
HONOLULU — Duane “Dog” Chapman headed for California Wednesday night to find another Hawaii fugitive.

Frank LeFrandt Jr. was supposed to have started serving a 10-year prison term for raping a 13-year-old boy.

A Circuit Court judge issued a $5 million bench warrant on Tuesday after LeFrandt jumped bail. His car was found last week at the airport. This afternoon A-1 Bondsman hired Chapman to help find LeFrandt. Chapman left for Los Angeles in the evening. Chapman is known for his reality TV series on the A&E Network “Dog the Bounty Hunter.” LeFrandt was arrested in August after sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy in the back of his newspaper delivery van.
Deputy Prosecutor Thalia Murphy said a deal was cut with the married father of two children to spare the victim from testifying. Prosecutors said he is traveling under a false identity. His lawyers said they do not know where he is.
Chapman broke into the national limelight when he captured Max Factor heir Andrew Luster in Mexico. Luster was wanted in connection with a series of rapes.

Dog Looks For Child Molester

Dog Chapman Searching For Child Molester

By Andrew Pereira

STORY SUMMARY>>>

Duane “Dog” Chapman, bounty hunter and star of his own reality TV show is on the trail of a convicted child molester who failed to report to a Honolulu prison on December 1.

Under a deal with prosecutors Frank Lefrandt Jr., 47 of Aiea, pled guilty to second and third degree sex assault and one count of second degree attempted sex assault against a 13 year old boy. At the time of the attack Lefrandt was working as a newspaper delivery supervisor and had hired the child as his helper.

“I’ve chased many and caught many sexual predators,” said Chapman during an autograph signing session for fans at his Downtown Honolulu office.

Chapman says he found Lefrandt’s abandoned car last week at Honolulu International Airport. The bounty hunter believes the fugitive is no longer in Hawaii and may have fled the U.S.

“He doesn’t have a lot of money but all of a sudden he does have money to buy plane tickets, rent cars (and) go different places, so someone is obviously helping.”

Chapman stands to make ten percent of the $100,000 bail bond issued on Lefrandt’s behalf in August. However Chapman’s wife Beth says her husband is not concerned about money.

She points to Chapman’s capture of convicted rapist Andrew Luster in Mexico in June of 2003. The bounty hunter was never awarded the $300,000 he requested from the state of California for capturing the heir to the Max factor cosmetics fortune.

“Cases that involved women or children who have been hurt by predators, those cases he feels the most passionate about,” said Beth Chapman. “People that Dog goes after unfortunately they all fall because he can’t shake it out of his mind; he can’t stop thinking about it.”

Chapman says anyone with information about Lefrandt’s whereabouts should call authorities first, but he says he’s willing to listen to anyone who may have a lead.
