Kenneth Demone Sims - Repeat Sex Offender - Subject to LIFE

King County prosecutors have filed rape and kidnapping charges against a man who is accused of three rapes in suburban Renton.

Kenneth Demone Sims has a prior rape conviction from 1990. If he is convicted of any of the current rape charges, Sims would face a sentence of life in prison under Washington state's "Two Strikes" law for sex offenders. He is a Level III sex offender.

Prosecutors on Monday requested that bail for Sims be increased to $2 million. It previously was set at $1 million.

The 41-year-old man is charged with one count of first-degree rape, two counts of second-degree rape and two counts of first-degree kidnapping.

Sims is scheduled to be arraigned on July 7.
