The Milwaukee man was on facing 7 charges: 2nd degree sexual assault, strangulation, battery, false imprisonment, intimiation, resisting arrest, and bail jumping. 

In July of 2014, Dorgay was in a hotel with his girlfriend. According to a criminal complaint he hit and strangled her, forcing her to write a letter recanting an earlier crime she accused him of. After that, officials say he raped her.
