Plea deal reached for MN man accused of kidnapping woman

Jackson County (WQOW) – A Minnesota man accused of kidnapping a woman and taking her across state lines to Wisconsin, will spend time behind bars.

Dwayne Doxen was charged in Jackson County with four counts, including kidnapping and false imprisonment.

According to the criminal complaint, Doxen picked up the victim at a homeless shelter in Minneapolis, promising her work cleaning an office building.

The victim said after she crossed into Wisconsin, she asked multiple times for Doxen to let her go, but he refused.  She said she was hours away from home when she threatened to urinate in Doxen’s car to get him to pull over.

She then sought help from an employee at the Hixton Travel Center and police were called and Doxen was arrested.

A search of his vehicle turned up several IDs and social security cards as well as women’s clothing and jewelry.

As part of a plea agreement, Doxen pleaded no contest to one count of carrying a concealed weapon in exchange for the other charges being dropped.

Jackson County Judge Anna Becker sentenced Doxen to six months in jail.
