A violent sex offender who fled Canada is being held on $100,000 bail after being accused of harassment and another sexual assault.
Michael Sean Stanley made a first court appearance today.
A judge set his bail at $100,000, citing the circumstances of how he fled Canada to the United States.

Wearing a red prison uniform with his hands shackled in front of him, Stanley appeared before the judge by video from the local jail.
Stanley did not speak to the judge during the brief hearing.
He entered the United States earlier this month as Canadian police were searching for the 48-year-old.
On Oct. 1, the electronic monitoring bracelet he had been wearing was cut off and found on the roof of a business in Lloydminster on the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary.
