The 124-year prison sentence for an heir to cosmetics giant Max Factor fortune has been vacated by a Ventura County Superior Court judge on grounds that the trial judge "failed to state specific reasons for imposing full consecutive sentences."

Andrew Luster, 49, was serving a 124-year prison sentence after he was convicted on more than 80 counts of drugging and raping three women. The 31-page ruling issued Monday by Judge Kathryne Ann Stoltz stated that the trial judge failed to outline specific reasons for imposing consecutive sentences against Luster.

A new sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 4.

Luster is the great-grandson of Max Factor. He was convicted in 2003 after his capture in Mexico by bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Champman and returned to Southern California.

The court denied a request to vacate the conviction.
