Alberta fugitive registered as sex offender in Seattle

EDMONTON - A sex offender who police say cut off his monitoring bracelet and fled Alberta is now a registered sex offender in Seattle.
According to officials from the King County Sheriff's Office, Michael Stanley registered as a known sex offender Friday morning.
Stanley, a 48-year-old convicted violent and sexual offender from Alberta, was reported missing Oct. 1 after Lloydminster RCMP were alerted to the removal of his court-ordered GPS tracking bracelet.
An extensive search led authorities, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers, to Seattle.
On Thursday, police there said Stanley, who has dual citizenship, had been contacted and told he had until next Tuesday to register or face arrest.
Canadian authorities said they won't seek extradition to return Stanley to Canada to face a handful of charges including breach of recognizance and driving without a licence.
Now that he has registered, he will be watched by the Seattle Police Department and King County Sheriff's Department (KCSD).
KCSD Sgt. Cindi West said police agency will check on him periodically to confirm his residence.
In 2006, Stanley was convicted of assault and unlawful confinement for luring two children into a vacant suite and holding them there. One boy was 13 and the other was nine. Police said he also has a long history of sexual offences and has taken kids from playgrounds in the past.
