Andrew Luster Case File
First up on Guilty Rich is the story of Andrew Luster, whose story hit newsstands in the 2000s after he was implicated in a slew of assaults against women. What made the story even more interesting was the connection he had to Max Factor cosmetics since he was the wealthy great grandson.
The handsome and charming Andrew Luster lived a life of privilege as a child growing up in Malibu, California. His life in the lap of luxury continued throughout adulthood. By 2003, he was living in a gorgeous beach cottage, which he paid for with his hefty trust fund money.
It didn’t appear that Andrew Luster ever wanted to work for a living. He was quite content living off of his family’s wealth. A sense of entitlement and his lust for women eventually led to his undoing.

Andrew Luster’s lustrous world came crashing down after a woman came forward with information, alleging that Andrew had spiked her drink, which rendered her helpless. It was then that Luster assaulted her and recorded his actions on videotape.
When California detectives found the tapes, a warrant was issued for his arrest. Andrew Luster didn’t want to go to court to pay for his actions so he was tried and convicted in absentia. However, by that time, Luster was on the run. He was eventually captured by Dog the Bounty Hunter, aka Duane “Dog” Chapman, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, according to court records.
The story became so infamous that a Monday night movie of the week was made about his case. A Date With Darkness: The Trial and Capture of Andrew Luster premiered on Lifetime Television on Monday, August 11, 2003.
