Michael Sean Stanley

Update at 1:56 p.m.: | The City Attorney’s Office says Stanley will be eligible for release from jail on March 10.

Original post: | Fugitive sex offender Michael Sean Stanley pleaded guilty this morning to misdemeanor charges of harassment and resisting arrest in Seattle Municipal Court.

Judge Willie Gregory sentenced Stanley to 364 days in jail, with 154 days suspended. He also received credit for the time he’s spent behind bars since his arrest, although it’s unclear when he will be released.

They Seattle City Attorney’s Office said they are still calculating when Stanley will be released. Kimberly Mills, spokeswoman for City Attorney Pete Holmes, said Stanley will not be released today.

Stanley, through his lawyer, asked for alcohol treatment as part of his sentence.

“I got to be responsible for an action,” Stanley told Gregory. “I do need to do something about treatment. Once I get the treatment I think everything is going to work out.”

Stanley, 48, was arrested after Seattle police responded to a report of a man yelling in a West Seattle alley early in the morning of Oct. 22. A neighbor told officers that Stanley threatened him after he asked Stanley to quiet down, according to a police report.

Officers said Stanley was belligerent and “actively resisted” their commands, according to a police report. Following his arrest, officers confiscated a small lock-blade knife, a flashlight, a screwdriver and pliers from Stanley, according to the report.

After Stanley’s arrest, police said he had also been involved in the sexual assault of a 16-year-old boy that same morning. The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office said the alleged sexual assault is still under investigation.

The Seattle City Attorney’s Office has filed a charge of resisting arrest against fugitive sex offender Michael Sean Stanley.

The charge filed today stems from the same Oct. 22 incident that resulted in Stanley being charged last month with harassment. Both charges are misdemeanors.

If convicted of the new charge, it could add 90 days to the possible sentence of 364 days Stanley faces if he’s also found guilty of harassment, according to the Seattle City Attorney’s Office. His next court hearing is scheduled for Nov. 18.

Stanley remains in the King County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
