    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"?

    There should be a section marked "Racey Threads" so those of us who read the above and feel left out can go hang out. :-)
    FUN... is a renewable resource!
