Drug-rape heir given 124-year sentence.
Andrew Luster (above) who vanished on January 3 during a recess in his trial, was also ordered to pay pounds 625,000 in restitution.
The 39-year-old was convicted in his absence last month on 86 counts including rape, drug and weapons possession, and poisoning.
Prosecutors in Ventura, California, said Luster, the greatgrandson of cosmetics tycoon Max Factor, took three women to his beachside home and raped them after giving them the daterape drug GHB.
A search of his home turned up videotapes of Luster having sex with women who appeared to be either asleep or unconscious.
