SEATTLE, Wash. - The violent sex offender who sneaked across the border from Canada into Seattle pleaded guilty to charges of harassment and resisting arrest.
Judge Willie Gregory sentenced Michael Sean Stanley to seven months in jail, though he will be out in about two months, in part because of time already served.
Stanley smiled, made peace signs and gave a KIRO 7 photographer the thumbs up before pleading guilty in Seattle Municipal Court.
"I've got to be responsible for my actions so that's why I'm agreeing with it," Stanley said to the judge. "Because I do need to do something about treatment."
Part of the plea deal includes evaluation and treatment for alcohol dependency.
"I can't be walking around with a gallon of alcohol and think everything's going to be okay," Stanley said. "Once I get the treatment I think everything will work out."
Police found Stanley drunk and yelling in a West Seattle alley in the early morning hours of Oct. 22nd.
Neighbors said he threatened them.
Police also said Stanley lured a 16-year-old boy to the alley with alcohol and sexually assaulted him, but that was not part of the guilty plea Tuesday.
The King County Prosecutor's office said it's still reviewing that part of the case.
Only a few days before the incident, KIRO 7 tracked down Stanley on the streets of Seattle after he cut off an electronic monitoring bracelet in Canada and sneaked across the border.
He said then he was not a danger to the community.
