A Denver man offered $20,000 in cash, a Mercedes-Benz and a $14,000 ring to fellow inmates in an attempt to kill a rape victim before she testified at his trial, a grand jury indictment on Wednesday stated.

The indictment alleged that while incarcerated in the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center in Denver, Tony Dotson purchased canteen items to curry favor with gang members on his cell block in hopes of negotiating a murder-for-hire scheme.

Dotson, 41, could face up to 24 years in prison if convicted of the solicitation-to-commit murder charge. He is awaiting sentencing and faces 31 years to life in prison for conviction on the sexual assault charges that he had tried to avoid by allegedly trying to have the victim killed.
