Michael Spears – Repeat Sex Offender – New Rape Charges

Spears is a registered sex offender with previous convictions on rape charges in 1983 and 1989.

A convicted sex offender faces new charges accusing him of raping a Denver woman in 1998, the District Attorney’s office said today.

Prosecutors said Michael Spears, 54, was pretending to fix a bicycle in the 1600 block of Stuart Street on Oct. 11, 1998.

When a woman offered to help him, he dragged her into the bushes and raped her, according to investigators.

He was linked to the assault by DNA and a cold case investigation. Spears was charged with second-degree kidnapping and first-degree sexual assault this week.

Spears is a registered sex offender with previous convictions on rape charges in 1983 and 1989.

He remains in the Denver County Jail under a $250,000 bond.
