Registered Sex Offender Charged in Rape

Summary

State v. Michael Shawn Stanley

Story

Registered Sex Offender Charged in Rape: Charges of Burglary in the First Degree and Rape in the Second Degree were filed yesterday against sex offender Michael Shawn Stanley, who is accused of raping a 69-year-old woman in Skyway last Friday. Stanley entered the victim’s home through a window and then allegedly sexually assaulted her. Because of Stanley’s criminal history, he is designated as a level three sex offender. The charges include a rapid recidivism aggravator since the current offense was allegedly committed a short time after his release from incarceration on a burglary conviction. The aggravator can be used as a basis for an exceptional sentence. If convicted as charged, the defendant faces a minimum sentence range of 15 to 20 years up to an indeterminate maximum of life in prison. Bail has been set at $1 million. Arraignment is scheduled for March 16 at 8:30 a.m. in courtroom 1201 of the King County Courthouse.
