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.

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.
