A Florida man featured on the reality TV show "Hoarders" is actually a registered sex offender who was convicted in 1981 of an attempted sexual assault of an 18-year-old Eastern Michigan University student, the website The Smoking Gun reports.
The show on the A&E TV network portrayed Sisson, now called Patrick Donovan Flanagan O’Shannahan, as an eccentric doll collector.
The article says Sisson tried to rape the student after treating her and some friends to an expensive dinner and then giving her a ride. He also has a felony assault conviction for throwing a 72-year-old woman to the ground, the article said.
