Convicted Colorado rapist accused of trying to have his victim killed

Published

on

A Colorado man already facing 31 years in prison on a sexual assault conviction has also been charged with trying to pay gang members to kill his victim.

KCNC-TV reported on Friday that 41-year-old Tony Dotson is suspected of approaching members of two Denver-area street gangs and “associates” of a white supremacist group and offering them a $14,000 ring, a Mercedes-Benz, and money in exchange for killing the woman.

At the time, Dotson was in jail awaiting trial for the May 2012 attack, in which he faked a burglary attempt before assaulting the woman while threatening her with a knife. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 17, 2014.

The Denver Post reported that Dotson is accused of using $6,691 deposited in his inmate account to ingratiate himself with other prisoners and find a prospective hitman. He faces an additional 24 years in prison if convicted of solicitation to murder.

Later, the friend used $1,000 of the money as a partial payment for the prospective hit. Two additional suspects were later arrested in connection with the scheme. Prosecutors told KCNC the woman, a friend of Dotson’s fiancee, was outside the state and out of danger.

Dotson is also reportedly the last person to see his sister, Nonnie, alive before her disappearance in 2007. Her case has never been solved.

Published

on

Whoopi Goldberg had to cool off a heated argument on "The View" between Joy Behar and Meghan McCain, who complained about being the show's "sacrificial Republican."

McCain mocked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for appearing at President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Orlando, where the president belittled him from the stage.

"The transformation is complete," McCain said. "That's what I thought last night, the transformation is complete."

She then warned the other panelists not to overlook the crowd enthusiasm for Trump, and she recalled a conversation with a producer who couldn't understand why the president's supporters loved him so much.

Reparations hearing erupts in applause after Ta-Nehisi Coates gives McConnell an epic lesson on racism

Published

on

Author Ta-Nehisi Coates on Wednesday delivered an epic smack down of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on reparations for slavery.

In Coates's opening remarks, he responded directly to McConnell's claim that the government should not pay out reparations to black Americans because slavery ended more than 150 years ago.

Coates pointed out that the United States was still paying out pensions to the families of Civil War soldiers "well into this century" and he said that the government still honors treaties it signed even though no one who signed them is still alive today.
