Brian Keith Dotson, a.k.a. Priest DeOlivera
Update: Per St. Louis Crimestoppers, Brian Dotson was arrested last night without incident. Adds Crimestoppers, "Thanks to all our callers. The response to this was great." You don't say...

Update: According to the probable cause statement obtained by RFT Music from the Jefferson County Prosecutor's office, Brian Dotson was involved in a sexual relationship with the daughter of a family friend. The victim says he would sometimes stay at their house in Jefferson County and that, starting in May of 2011, any time he did they would engage in a variety of sex acts. She was thirteen when it started and is now fourteen.

Original post follows.

Shattermask frontman Brian Keith Dotson is wanted on two counts of statutory rape and three counts of statutory sodomy. An arrest warrant was issued on April 8; Dotson remains at large and has now started appearing on St. Louis Crimestoppers billboards in the area.

The first charge, from May 15, 2011, is for first-degree statutory rape, meaning the victim was a person less than fourteen years old. If found guilty, Dotson faces a prison sentence no less than five years. The maximum authorized sentence is life imprisonment.

The other charges, all from August 17, 2011, are one count of second-degree statutory rape and three counts of second-degree statutory sodomy, meaning the victim was under seventeen years old. Each of these four counts carries a maximum prison sentence of seven years.

An associate circuit judge in Jefferson County issued a warrant for Dotson's arrest on March 8, 2012. If you have any information that might help law enforcement locate him, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 314-725-8477 or submit a tip online here.

KSDK, reporting the story late last night, talked to an unnamed bandmate who says Dotson was planning to turn himself in when he has the money for a lawyer.

Court records indicate that a person with the same name and year of birth as Dotson pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident in St. Louis County in 1995 and operating a vehicle with a suspended license in 2009. A Brian Keith Dotson born in 1973 is also wanted in Washington County for operating a vehicle last year without a proper license or registration and is being sued by the state for what looks to be a failure to pay child support in excess $5,000, a felony.

Shattermask released its first album, 3til3 in 2003 and played as recently as March 10. Its online biography reads:

Shattermask uses the hard core of metal and the catchiness of mainstream, then combines it with a stage show of raw energy and capoeira. Shattermask is managed by Robair Evon Entertainment. Together they are working on many future projects and are forcing their way out of the Mid-West to give their fans, and new fans a taste of something they have never heard or seen.

We will update this post with more information as we get it.

For those who haven't had the pleasure of seeing Shattermask in action, some visual evidence is on the next page.

This band all together is a joke... Priests will get whats coming to him when hes locked up.=] i hope he likes it from the behind.... As for the shatter fans whats wrong with all of you dont play dumb or is it the fact that you all where to high to see all the shit that went down right infront of you... step away from the drugs and how about you do something with your life.... as for the rest of the band one of them is a drug dealer, the other two like 12 year olds just like there leader.......  Jefferson county two thumbs up for for all the meth and predos running around....

Hey Number One Fan is a good guy, and when he caught on to some of Priests ways he put things to an end years before any of this mess happened.Sometimes people even thought number one fan was being lame because he didnt want to have parties all the time because he worked and lived a normal life to provide for his son. I know for a fact that number one fan dissagreed with some of priests ways and at one time even said that he didnt want Priest back at his home. And as for your comment about him hoarding shattersluts for himself....That is FALSE. He was the type of guy that wanted a real woman in his life not some star struck flussie and not to mention that girls would pile up in his bed to sleep and not ever have to worry about being touched or have anything unappropriate happen to them. I have been to several parties there and was given a place to stay for several months without being asked for anything except to help around the house. He was not big on drugs, or pills and barely drank much at all. The only WOMEN that I ever saw there were ALL of age. Basically the only time Priest showed his face there was for maybe a few hours after a show and then gone again. I dont condone ANY rape or molestation of any kind and if Priest did these things he should be punished. I just hope some of you direct your anger and frustrations in the correct direction. The family of the girl and the girl is not the only victim here, everyone affected by this is a victim in some way. Some are victims of stupidity for defending something that you really dont know the truth about. Some victims dont even realize they are victims. Keep in mind what we are really disscussing here, the matter at hand. Priest and the charges against him, he is the one who made the choices to do the things it is said that he did. If he did these things it was no ones fault but his own. Like i said i am totally against rape in any form but just as rape is illegal so is slander. You naming people and making false accusations is not helping anyone. Its not helping the case, its not helping the victims, and i certainly dont believe it is helping you. THough some people were involved heavily with Shattermask im sure most of them will make the choice to move on and leave it behind them. We need not slander no ones name because this keeps them from moving forward to change for the better.

 The fact that you are giving everyone on here arsenal to die laughing to, is what is killing me, DarkestGay! You said, "Shattermask was by far the greatest band ever to come out of the St. Louis area!  Their music touched so many of the lives that were lucky enough to see them." This is the greatest crock i've heard in years. Yes you should have your own show. No wait how about," My generation didn't have The Beatles.  We had Shattermask....and we shall never forget the day Priest left us all. " Hahahah wait a sec.  You cannot speak for a generation, unless of course that is some odd offset generation completely comprised of a group of kids from hillbilly county in the midwest, and their tone deaf  inbred cousins. Okay, I will give you the home schooled underprivileged sheltered kid who never had access to the world.  "Shattermask was the biggest and baddest band in the St. Louis area"- Absolutely Hysterical!!!!! I am glued to this Shit. I have never EVER heard of someone that would even remotely say what you spat with a straight face. Wait you're joking right?... I mean really?  Shattermask is your epitome of technical or "MODERN" anything? WOW, I love it! 3 bumpkins in makeup, (which I'm told have teeth now... So that gives your argument a little more bite) and a wannabe Brazilian, who only sound like every rapcore band I hated in the late nineties until they hired Priest are your musical "Geniuses" ? I'm sorry but they did gain some validity by taking him on... They unlike most of the others had a black guy that could do impressions over the same simplistic tunes that fill local music halls around every podunk town in America. Plus they started glamming up around that time. So showmanship, okay. The makeshift Rocky Horror Carnival show, where the carnies get to perform, and a fake singer/ real rapist to drive them home SWEEEEET! I So looking forward to your next gem. And by the way the koolaid thing wasn't a poke at your age. It is a reference to the kids that followed that cult leader and drank the poisoned koolaid so they could follow him into the afterlife... Kinda like your strange unimaginable infatuation with SM. I'm gonna leave you with a quote... Small town, Small mind. Think about it.

man.. i didnt know people were still on this.. just go on casenet and see all his upcoming hearing and/or trials.. i know this was a shocker for everyone, but he was known to have a lot of girls at one time.. and also known for the underage girls he slept with.. for all you people saying that he is innocent, explain the fact that he was caught in illinois with another underage girl. she was 13. people just need to grow up and face the facts.. 

I know this guy
I know this guy

This guy has been doing this kind of shit for decades now. He's left a trail of dumb bitches in his wake that now think of themselves as victims. Shows you what some chicks are into. Why don't girls think before throwing themselves at guys like this? But back on point, this loser is getting what he deserves. I can't say I'm surprised he stooped this low... he's been accused of all sorts of shit like this in several cities over the years, but nobody really ever does anything about it... just a dirty little secret. All you girls, he is a CARRIER of HEPATITIS B! At the least. Get tested.

fuck ted
fuck ted

yea doesn't he know that if you want to molest an underage girl as a "rock star" you just have to do like Ted Nuggent did. convince parents of said minor to make you her legal guardian.... then it doesn't look bad in the press and you can continue on with an illustrious career...

i know brian personally and for being as smart and talented as he is he sure did do something stupid. im disgusted by this. i just found out today...i didnt even know any of this happened at all. i feel sorry for the victims and their families. i dont even know what else to say....smh

knowyourfactsfirst
knowyourfactsfirst

for one he has not been found guility yet so there for all of you should just shut your mouths until he is proven guility!!!!!!! I love shattermask i have been friends with all of them for years who knows if it is really true he hasnt been proven guility of any crimes yet. and until he is proven then I think everybody should just not say anything about it because you never know what really happend girls these days will agree to have sex with an older man and then try to get them in trouble it happends everyday. look at the newspapers on how many rape charges that were trying to be charged and that werent even true!!!! but two and two together people

amen, finally someone with some since, i have proof the man is innocent, pics of the girls an mom an well just more than enough to prove he is innocent an the girls obsessional ways , i was there, so fuck all the ignorance coming from the haters, i got pics an my ass was around them the entire time, so all bs aside, the lil girls need some major help an need to be with their father, the mother is not a good person an neither is the crowd she has around, meth heads an cooks in her house, ya think that says it all. no money to be won for them an the issues they  have with meth. its been to long i kept my mouth shut with the GODS HONEST TRUTH, oh did i say i have pictures an proof. yea, so the day will come, just wait an see  

Aprilandbrad

 Okay so maybe he has not been found guilty yet, but you mean to tell me that there is anything that he would be able to say that justifies doing anything with a 13 year old girl, I seriously doubt that one.  Obviously there was enough information for the US Marshals to arrest him or they would never have done it.  A lot of people need to face the music that he is a sexual predator and the truth will come out in the end, and the truth I bet will be what we all know he is GUILTY!!!

Aprilandbrad
Aprilandbrad

 The facts, the facts, the facts, that is what you always says and the truth is that yes the facts will be told and when the facts are told he will be guilty and you never know you may be found guilty as well, read the other stories on here from the people that also know him and say how he has been doing this for years, I guess that is just everyone else lying right  just like always you are the only one speaking the truth, well we will all see in the end, and the truth is that no matter what the circumstances are no 37 or 38 year old man should be doing anything with a 13 year old girl, that is sick shit and everyone knows that even the dumbest people out there and if you are not involved then why are you hiding as well?  Makes no sense to hide when you are innocent, only guilty people hide!!

 she is not going to face the facts that he is GUILTY!!!! How do I know this because I know her, Crystal/Shattergypsy or whatever is his so called fiance and has been with him for years, so yes she is going to defend him to the fullest no matter what and nothing that any of us say will ever convince her of anything else, she is that kind of person, this is not the first sick pedophile that she has protected, lets just say that I know her on a personal level, she doesnt care about anyone but the people in her little world that she thinks is so perfect, she gives birth to children that she walked away from, she also has a child support case that she doesnt know how to take care of and would rather sit in jail than do so,  and she wanted to take my kids around this predator, well that will never happen, she tells everyone that he is such a great guy and blah, blah, blah!  Well I know that as a mother I would not want this man anywhere near my kids, and he will never ever be.  She talks about how she is so clean of meth and drugs but everything on here is all about how they have all the meth heads following them and their shitty music.  It will do no good to tell her that he has been cheating on her because she will never believe it or she will just go on like it never happened, I honestly think that she is hiding as well now because she knows that she has seen shit happen as well, or has helped it happen, and conviently is on the run too, I know that there is a picture of her in the shattercave with what looks to be an underage girl in front of her doing god knows what, so the bottom line is that she fits rights in with Brian Dotson as she has condoned this sexual predator for years and it sure sounds like she will continue to do so even though he has been arrested by the one of the highest officials.  If anyone has information about the  drug use and the things that have went on with her and Brian around please let me know, I would be very interested to hear this as I have someone else who would also like to know that she is not s perfect as she tries to make everyone believe that she is.  From the post on here this shit has been going on for years and there are many victims, so for the victims out there dont be scared come forward and tell the truth about all of them, it is time to speak the truth like others do not know how to do!

 Well I dunno, I didnt know this guy too well considering the fact that I only went over to that house once and hung out with "brian" I guess is his name for about an hour. I kinda liked their music but then again I tend to collect underground stuff as a hobby. Its a shame he turned out to be such a disgusting person because he seemed cool to me, but then again we didnt say much to each other other than how I thought it was pretty cool that they had the courage to even become a band when most people dont even get past making a name for their band. Oh well! fuck em, another one bites the dust. The comments that people are giving about how they knew him are interesting. I tend to believe these testimonials about how sick he is simply because I can attest to some of the facts stated about desoto...

I hope that you do not think that aprilandbrad is crystal, believe me its not, I do know her my husband was married to her a long time ago and she was a piece of sh*t then too.  So none of this surprises me with her anymore, I am the legal mom to the three kids that she gave birth to, we went to court her rights were terminated and I adopted them as if I had gave birth to them myself.  She keeps telling people that she has an attorney and all the means to take us back to court and have this reversed but it sounds to me like they dont either have the means to do a whole lot.  I dont understand why she would take up for this guy as he is a sexual predator and what he has done is wrong.  There is also a warrant out for her arrest out of Kentucky.
