High-risk sex offender who fled Canada now in Seattle; authorities order him to register

Authorities in the Seattle have located a high-risk sex offender who recently fled Canada.
Seattle police say the 48-year-old could be arrested if he fails to register as a sex offender.
Stanley has a long history of sexual offenses against women and children and had been missing since Oct. 1, when he cut off his electronic-monitoring bracelet around the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary.
Canadian authorities warned U.S. counterparts that he might try to cross the border, but U.S. officials allowed him in after determining he was a U.S. citizen and not the subject of an extraditable arrest warrant.
