West Seattle Crime Watch followup: Another charge filed against Michael Stanley

Another day in court today for Michael S. Stanley, the convicted rapist who cut off his monitoring bracelet and fled Canada, turning up eventually in West Seattle, arrested for harassment and under investigation for sexual assault. The City Attorney’s Office has added another charge to the case that started with harassment, when Stanley was arrested in an Admiral alley two weeks ago – he is now also charged with resisting arrest, and pleaded not guilty this morning. We have an inquiry out seeking more information on the new charge and will add it here when we have it; meantime, Stanley remains jailed, bail still set at $100,000, and he’s scheduled to return to Seattle Municipal Court in two weeks.

Stanley is not yet charged in the alleged sexual assault of a teenager who reported it to police after the harassment arrest, but our partners at The Seattle Times reported last week that Seattle Police have completed their part of the investigation and referred it to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

    This has been up here for two days, listed as a top story and not one comment? What’s up with that?

      Dunno. Sometimes, there’s just nothing to say. I read dozens of news stories daily myself and rarely feel like commenting. This could be described as a fairly simple update that doesn’t evoke any particular new reason to say something. But we’re still watching the case…

    I would like to know if anyone has information on the teen and if he is being taken care of off the streets. We want to know he is ok and will testify. Best of wishes to him.

    I am with Karen, Stanley can rot in H E double toothpicks, but how is the youth doing? How can the community help him?
