Jessie Dotson: Dotson Lester Street 6 murders (photos)

Oct 12 2010 – The jury recommended that Jessie Dotson receive the death penalty and sentence to die by lethal injection. Dotson was convicted on all 6 counts of first degree murder.

Before he killed 6 people, Dotson was a convicted killer who had served 14 years in prison. Dotson was released 7 months before he killed his brother (Cecil Dotson), his brother’s girlfriend (Marissa Williams), two other adults in the house (Hollis Seals and Shindri Roberson) and two nephews who were 4 and 2 years old (Cemario Dotson & Cecil Dotson Jr II).

The survivors were Cecil Dotson Jr, now 11, Cedric Dotson, 8 and a girl, then 2 months old. They survived 40 hours before they were found with injuries.

Dotson will receive his sentencing on Nov 12, 2010. He is likely to be executed on March 2, 2012. However, Dotson’s lawyers are expected to appeal against the death sentence and this will delay his death sentence.

Oct 11 2010 – The Jury convicted Jessie Dotson of killing his own brother during an argument. Dotson then tried to kill others in the house to eliminate the witnesses. Cecil Dotson Jr, the son of the murdered man, testified that his uncle was responsible.

Cecil Dotson Jr had a 4.5 inch blade stuck in his skull when he was found in a bath tub. He survived to become a key prosecution witness. Cecil was afraid to name his uncle as the killer in the house. Initially, Cecil said a man named Roderick or Roger was the attacker. Later, he said Uncle Junior was the killer. Cecil, then 9 in 2008, said his uncle shot his father and stabbed him and others in the home.

Jessie Dotson said he was innocent and blamed the murders on a gang attack because he ratted on them. Dotson then said he hid under a bed while the gang was present in his brother’s home. Jessie then claimed he didn’t make a police report immediately as he was afraid for his own life. Jessie Dotson left the house using a child’s bicycle.

Jessie Dotson or the gunman’s two guns were never found. The prosecution had 450 pieces of evidence and the jury was shown photos of the crime scene. Some members of the jury became emotional after looking at the pictures.

Jessie Dotson faces sentencing on another day.

    Nothing can excuse the horrific crime that Jesse committed, but knowing some things about his background could help shed a little light on the situation. He grew up in the streets basically raised by thugs and somewhat abandoned by his family, including his mother. He went to prison at age 19 to do a 14 year sentence for murder. You may think prison is a place designed for rehabilitation – but that couldn’t be further from the truth. People fight daily to survive, are often gang raped repeatedly, and are abused by guards and staff. We don’t know what his prison life was like, but I’d be willing to speculate it was pure HORROR. In one article, Dotson said he felt his family could have done more to see him while he was in prison. He said his brother (victim) who was 3 years younger than him NEVER came to see him the 14 years he was incarcerated. This man had a hatred, a hurt, a pain so great in his heart – that he was broken. The pain he felt the day he committed those murders had very little to do with his family. Period.

    But like I said, nothing can excuse what this man did. But if any of you reading this have a genuine concern, you’d take a closer look at our legal system and these box-horror hell holes they call prison intended to ‘reform’……..

    Hello!!!! To all the people, naive ones at that, who said Jessie didnt do this horrific, demonic & satanic crime……..Cecil’ oldest son, the 1 with the blade in his head, identified his “Uncle Junior” as the murderer & attacker. Jessie’s only regret is leaving those 3 kids alive……He’s one sick animal who deserves a slow, painful death and to be tortured for eternity and beyond!

    if you followed the trial, you would know this man, Mr. Dotson, did not do this horrific crime. he has been railroaded by the memphis police, d a , and our entire justice system; even those jurors we paid to put up in the Peabody (?) conficted him and sentenced him on Emotions not on ‘following the evidence or lack of evidence’…SHAME ON MEMPHIS AND THE MINDSET OF SUCH PEOPLE AS THE ONES ON THESE BLOGS THAT WRITE SUCH HATE.

    I watched this segment on the First 48 and he most definitely did all the murders by himself.. So sad because his mind is sick. God Bless that family and this was so tragic.. It really hurt my heart..

  17. mom29

    This is a shame! I know that siblings have a habit of confrontations. But to get that angry and in a rage!!!!!! Everyone who died, was innocent…especially the children….no matter what happened

  18. rosie parks

    this is sad,this man just clicked,he was not born an animal,we are not stone cold as white people, but prison,the system his dad there are others to blame if you get to the root of the problem.

    I hope they give him life plus the death by electrocution. It’s wrong what and how he did. He was mad at his brother and took his anger out on everyone in the damn house. Them babies ain’t have nothin to do with that, as well as the visitors. Their families have my deepest sympathy.

  20. jan

    where do morons like you come from?

  21. Dede

    I wish i was his lawyer because even though he confessed that he did it, i know he didnt do it all by hisself.. There was still some one to help.
