Man accused of trespassing says his actions were misunderstood

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A man arrested last year after a Midtown woman accused him of performing sex acts on her front porch is in trouble with the law again. Late Saturday, the uninvited visitor knocked on the door of a home in Midtown.

The homeowner, Miki, who asked Action News 5 not to reveal her last name, called 911.

"He was, like, pounding really hard, like he was wanting to pound the door in," she said.

When police arrived, the man, identified as Michael Killion, was caught hiding in the back yard of her neighbor's home.

"I have never felt so threatened for my life," Miki said.

Police charged Killion with criminal trespassing. An investigation reveals that Killion was charged with stalking last year, after being accused of performing sex acts on the front porch of another Midtown home.

"This last bond of 250 dollars was almost a mockery to us," Miki said. "It was like, 'Haha, look at me. I've got out again.'"

In an effort to clear his name, Killion contacted Action News 5.

"I'm not a freak," Killion said Thursday. "I'm not crazy. I mean I'm human. Everybody makes mistakes."
Killion admits being at the home on Tutweiler Saturday night, says he was being followed by the police and panicked. 

"I jumped off the porch and I ran around the house, and yes, I did try to hide, but I mean, what they're trying to say, what I was doing or whatever, it's not true," Killion said. "It's really not true."
 Even Killion understands why his prior record doesn't support his claims.   Last April he was accused of performing sex acts on the porch of another Midtown home. 

"I did go to that lady's window, and I did look in there, but that was the only time," he said. "I mean, all those other times I didn't get a chance to speak because I was so embarrassed."
Killion says drugs and alcohol have clouded his judgement. 
"I'm not a pervert, man," he said. "I'm not what they say. I'm a 32-year-old man. I think I'm very nice looking. I think I can get any woman I want."

Killion's accusers say he's a repeat offender who shouldn't be out on bond.

"I want him to get help, too," Miki said.

Killion says he's considered counseling, but he can't afford the cost.
