Seattle assault investigation of fugitive felon ‘taking time’

More than a week after fugitive sex offender Michael Sean Stanley was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy in West Seattle, there’s no indication when criminal charges will be filed in the case.

There appears to be no rush to charge Stanley, a 48-year-old U.S. citizen convicted of sex crimes in Canada, since he’s being held in King County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail on a misdemeanor harassment charge stemming from an Oct. 22 incident the same day as the alleged assault. The unusually high bail amount was granted by a judge, in part, because police are investigating him in connection with the alleged assault.
