@AB Bride:  From what I read when they first realized he was in Seattle, Canada declined to extradite him to face charges and he was asked to register as an offender here. There was nothing theey (US cops) could do until he offended again. So sad that someone else got hurt in this process 🙁

@AB Bride:  For us US bees, what was the history with this guy? From the article comments it seemed that he was a high profile sex offender.

@Treejewel19:  He is a convicted sex offender in Alberta, and cut off his monitoring braclette and went on the run a few weeks ago. He’s a sexual predator (he abused two special needs boys and an elderly lady, which lead to his first arrest). He’s American, so the border let him in because even though there was a warrant for his arrest, they weren’t ‘big’ enough charges. He registered as a sex offender in Seattle, and then pretty much immediatly offended, by attacking a 16 year old boy.

Stanley, who was released from jail in April 2011 after completing a 32-month sentence for assault and forcible confinement, is still wanted in Canada on charges of breach of recognizance, mischief and driving offences.

But those recent and relatively minor charges relate to cutting off the ankle bracelet and dropping out of sight.

In a statement, the Alberta government said although Michael Stanley has a criminal record of violent offences, the Canadian warrant for “Breach of Peace Bond” is not serious enough to justify asking American authorities to turn him over.

“The only charges Mr. Stanley faces… are related to the removing of his bracelet.”

That, it turns out, is not an extraditable offense.

Michael Stanley was a serious sex offender (prone to violence), having multiple counts against him in the past everything from sex assault on a baby thru to a woman in her 80s.

Sicko for sure.

He is also a US Citizen.

So when he crossed into the USA, it meant that Canadian Authorities would have to extradite him to charge with anything he’d done here in the last little while (not sure of how many assaults he’s committed recently… but do know that he took off his monitoring ankle cuff, which is part of the reason that there was a man hunt, he broke conditions of his parole)

I think when he went to the US, that our Authorities thought it was too much of a hassle to track him down etc

When the US Authorities found him, they made him register as a Sex Offender in Washington State.

Now he has reoffended (there) with a 16 year old teenage boy.  So he’s facing US charges now.

All I know for sure, is someone needs to lock this guy up !!

To @AB Bride: I believe that Quote is directly in regards to his most recent breaking his Parole Conditions (removing the ankle cuff)

He most definitely… is a long time violent sex offender… check this Huffington Post link out… the info here comes from CBC (which is where I read it / saw it originally on Tv)


Not a nice person !!

@AB Bride:  I’m pretty sure the warrant was Canada-wide, just didnt extend into the states. I heard a news story (so take with a grain of salt) that it would have been too expensive to extradite him, he just became the US’s problem so they were basically waiting for him to offend again and be arrested (i paraphrased, but that’s what I got from it)
