Registered Sex Offender Arrested for Sex Crime

In December 2023, Dothan Investigators were notified that a victim disclosed to a mandatory reporter that the suspect, Thomas Thiel Jr., had inappropriate sexual contact with the victim.  The mandatory reporter notified Dothan Police and started an investigation.  As a result of the investigation, investigators gathered enough information to charge Thiel with one count of Sexual Abuse of a Child Less than 12 Years Old.  The offense occurred between August 2019 and August 2020.  Thiel was arrested in the early morning hours of March 6, 2024, since he was a registered sex offender in Dothan.  Thiel’s bond has been set at $30,000, and he was placed in the Houston County Jail.

Due to the age of the victim and privacy laws, no further information will be released.
