Fetishist Faces Life in Prison for Mannequin Thefts
Michigan Fetishist Faces Life in Prison for Mannequin Thefts
Tuesday, January 02, 2007
FERNDALE, Mich. — A man who has a history of smashing windows to indulge his fetish for female mannequins could draw a long prison term for his latest arrest.
Ronald A. Dotson, 39, of Detroit faces up to life in prison if convicted of a charge of attempted breaking and entering at a cleaning-supply company in the Detroit suburb of Ferndale.
The potential life sentence is because prosecutors charged him as a habitual offender. Authorities say he has at least six convictions for breaking and entering and a stint in state prison over the last 13 years.
Ferndale District Judge Joseph Longo ordered Dotson to stand trial following a preliminary examination on Thursday, The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak reported. The judge ordered him jailed unless he posts a $15,000 bond.
Dotson was arrested Oct. 9 after police say he smashed a window at a cleaning-supply company to get at a female mannequin dressed in a black and white French maid's uniform. He had been out of prison for less than a week.
Dotson was arrested in Ferndale in July 2000 and later convicted for breaking and entering at a women's clothing shop to get at a mannequin in a pink dress with bobbed hair.
Ferndale police also arrested Dotson in 1993 after finding him in an alley behind a woman's store with three lingerie-clad mannequins. He also has similar convictions in Detroit and suburban Oak Park.

This is so funny--like that Seinfeld episode where Elaine steals a mannequin cuz it looks like her---maybe this guy also had a fetish for that movie "Mannequin(1987)" where Kim Cattral plays a mannequin that comes to life lol

We had a thread about this story but it seems to have disappeared. As a matter of fact, all but the first page and a half of this forum seems to be gone.

I thought something was missing Mabel. I had posted something and when I went back to find it it wasn't there. I guess maybe our conversation got a little "racey"?
