Metro police have arrested a convicted sex offender after he allegedly lured a 17-year-old wanna be model to a Madison hotel and raped her.

Sex Crimes detectives are investigating whether convicted sex offender Samuel Dorsey, 31, has committed sex offenses against other women.

The teen told police that Dorsey removed his pants during the session and when she tried to escape, he told her she could do it “the easy way, or the hard way.” In fear of her safety, she continued to pose for him, as he demanded, before he forcibly raped her, police said.

Friends of the victim concerned about her welfare began pounding on the motel room door. The victim escaped, and Dorsey was taken into custody, police said.

Dorsey was convicted in 2007 of sexual battery for forcibly fondling a 15-year-old girl. He also has previous aggravated robbery and theft convictions.

He is charged with rape and false imprisonment in this case.

Detectives urge any other women who may have been assaulted or victimized by Dorsey to contact the police department’s Sex Crimes Unit at 862-7540, where specially trained detectives and counselors are available to assist victims.

Once again, revise the sentencing laws! This guy should have been behind bars.

What is he doing OUT of prison? Where are the parole officers? Another young girl ruined by someone who shouldn't be on the streets, could care less about hurting other people, and should have been on a catheter for LIFE! (ie: BEOWULF)

Sex offenders are worse than murderers. The FBI agent who started the behavioral unit said that these people can NOT be rehabilitated. When released from jail they pick up where they left off.

Enough of these scum get away without being prosecuted, those who are found guilty should serve the maximum sentence. No if's ands or buts.

The foremost purpose of government is for our safety. As long as these monsters roam the streets they will continue to harm more and more victims, it's a form of mental abuse that can last a long time. It damages the victims family and future relationships.

It's the most vile crime and one with no defense.

Amy, part of the problem is that maximum sentence means that the only serve 30% of the time behind bars and the rest is probation! that's why the sentencing guidelines need to be changed so that they serve at least 80% of their sentence behind bars. ALL violent offenders need to be behind bars for more than 30% of their sentence!!!!

all paroled sex offenders need to have GPS ankle bracelets too because no probation officer is going to be able to keep them in line. i agree that they cannot be rehabilitated.

For anyone who is reading this thread and is disgusted that this guy is not behind bars....PLEASE contact your representatives and demand that sentencing guidelines be revised! right now a bill is going through the house to revise sentencing guidelines for violent offenders. Now is the time to act!

Look at the last few pages of the document. It will show according to the current guidelines how much time a felon serves incarcerated vs. the time they spend on probation. unbelievable!
