Man Habitually Molests Store Mannequins, May Receive Life Imprisonment


A Michigan man is facing a potential life sentence for repeatedly indulging in strange sexual fetishes with mannequins. 39-year-old Ronald Dotson apparently has a history of breaking into stores to satisfy his appetite [SN Reported].

His latest fiasco involved a similar modus operandi, with him breaking into a department store to visit the objects of his affection. It is not known precisely what he does with them when the bizarre encounters are successful.

With this history of break-ins going as far back as 1993, he has now been classified as a habitual offender. This designation makes him liable to be imprisoned for life. He is currently in jail awaiting further legal proceedings.

I mean seriously this guy is sick but life? That should not even be an option. WE have to pay taxes to keep this harmless guy in jail for 20 years constituting millions and he barely did at best a few hundred dollars if that of damage to molest a doll?

Crime does not fit the punishment. It's retarded.

Some mannequins cost into the thousands of dollars each. I kinda wonder why he didn't buy his own and make it his sex slave.

If she was a really bad girl then he could just light her leg on fire or something. :-p

We should have sentenced him with the inability to get married to anything other than an inanimate object.

Him and that dollie could have gorgeous babies :P

  Not fair  
There's many other weirder and creepier fetishes out there, he doesnt need to go to jail, they need to either give him help or make him buy a manequinn to practice his fetish in the privacy of his own home.

  I agree  
Give him a dolly and let him have at it. It's not like the guy is going around raping and murdering women is it?

  May Receive Life Imprisonment!?

If he wasn't breakign in then I would just say move him along each time, but you can't have people repeatedly breaking the law to indulge sexual fantasies.

  has he ever done this to REAL people???  
if not...then buy him (or show him where to buy) a mannequin and let him have a happy life...

  Too many people with not enough to do  
1. Require him to make full restitution.
2. Make him buy his OWN doll.
3. Lock him up for 90 days for breaking and entering.
4. Find some real criminals to pursue - most likely a politician or a judge.

good to see that we are catching all the real criminals. Imagine the trauma that those poor dolls went through while being molested. Seriously, just arrest him for breaking and entering and tell him to buy a doll

  Law Vs. Rehab Vs. Treatment  
This guy needs medical treatment in a controlled environment, probably due to some unspecified bipolar disorder or something along that line. It's not a matter of him being a criminal and persecuted/prosecuted.

Who are you to know what he needs?

  Ok, I'll bite...  
In this situation, many people here seem to be making the connection between the man's infatuation with mannequins and as a result, possible life imprisonment. I agree, such a penalty for a man would be unduly harsh. However, as a matter of law, his mannequein infatuation is actually irrelevant. The reason he is being classified as a habitual offender is that he has repeatedly committed break and enter offenses, which is considered quite serious in most western jurisdictions. In addition to this, he is also stealing some of the mannequins, which is another criminal offense.

To put it into perspective, suppose his intention was to break into stores to steal stereo systems, and this was being done repeatedly, over a period of more than a decade. The perspective then changes from that of a vulnerable person to a malevolent thief, but it actually is the same principle.
Both situations involve a person attempting to achieve personal goals through illegal means.

I agree he should be given help, or maybe even a doll of his own first, but his unlawful and repeated forced entry into private property is the crux of the matter- not his being attracted to the objects.

Cheers ;)
