Convicted Sex Offender Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Real Estate Agent

A convicted sex offender accused of sexually assaulting a Cary real estate agent has requested a court appointed attorney.

Michael Sleeman faced a Wake County judge Tuesday afternoon on charges of first-degree forcible sex offense and first-degree kidnapping.

Police arrested 33 year-old Sleeman Sunday night, just hours after the realtor told them he attacked her. Investigators say he was pretending to be interested in buying a model home.

The judge elected to keep Sleeman's bond at $2 million. He'll return to court on September 28.

Sleeman was convicted of 2nd Degree sex offense in 2002.

    There is no deterrent with regard to prison. They have a real leisure life style. Room and Board, clothes, recreation, TV, (Some Satellite TV and some Internet). The only thing they can't do is leave. I say we need to ensure that going to prison is hell and then it would be a "bad place to go". Where else can one get 3 meals a day, a place to sleep at night, free air conditioning and heat, free clothes and dish network? Rehabilitation is a joke. The prisons should be intensly harsh and the last place one would like to go. Make those big rocks into little rocks from sun up to sundown and dig those holes and fill them up again. Hard labor without the posh lifestyle. Personally, I am sick and tired of tracking my taxes allowing these "affluent" accomodations. Let's get tough on these prison officials and the bleeding hearts and remedy the country club lifestyle.

    When will the legislature and the criminal justice system learn that there is no help for these people?

    They have so good in prison that they want to go back. If this sorry goverment would change laws and let the CO's crack down on the prisoners instead of giving the prisoners all the rights and freedom that they should have lost for the serious crimes that they committed you would not have as many prisoners going backand as many committing crimes. YES WE NEED CAPITOL PUNISHMENT
