Man With Mannequin Fetish Sent to Prison, Man With Mannequin Fetish Sentenced to Prison After Storefront Break-Ins in Michigan - CBS News

A man who acknowledged a sexual fetish for female-shaped mannequins was sentenced Thursday to more than a year in prison after repeatedly breaking into storefront windows.

Ronald Dotson, 39, of Detroit, was sentenced to 18 months to 30 years on charges of breaking and entering and being a habitual criminal.

He was arrested in October after police in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak spotted him near a smashed storefront window containing a mannequin wearing a French maid outfit.

The arrest came less than a week after he had been paroled for his sixth breaking-and-entering conviction in 13 years.

Some of the previous cases also involved mannequins. Police once found him in an alley behind a women's clothing store with three mannequins dressed in lingerie.

"I've never been able to take care of myself," Dotson told Judge Denise Langford Morris at sentencing.

Morris acknowledged that Dotson had never assaulted a person but said his behavior "strikes fear in the community."
Um, well, ah, this is just ****ing weird.

Do you have two monitors connected to your computer? One dedicated for finding odd news like this and the other to post links here?

Hmm, I haven't even been to Digg today. Doesn't surprise that it's there since you can find a link to ALMOST ANY NEWS STORY there.

I agree, based on the facts stated so far. What he needs is some serious help, not punishment, but our society is more comfortable with the latter.

I think he needs to serve some prison time for the break-ins, but he needs actual treatment for the odd fetish, since it obviously has a large impact on his life.

Any ramblings are entirely my own, and do not represent those of my employers, coworkers, friends, or species

What is really stupid is, he could have bought one from a clothing store going out of business and done whatever he wanted. This is too stupid and wierd. I think there is something really wrong with this guy. Really weired. He needs to be commited for stupidity.

He should have shopped at RealDoll (somewhat NSFW) instead.

Prison won't cure this guy, he's definitely got a compulsion to do this. If he's released, he'll do it again, unless he's treated.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Atleast your not breaking into other peoples property stealing their property. You have your own . . . . .

What does your girlfriend think of this? Gads! Whatever. . . Anyhow, you aren't breaking any laws. Unless you were in Texas and then I have no idea what laws might apply.
