SEX OFFENDER 2
HELENA, Mont. -

Authorities say they have arrested a Helena man who thought he was arranging a sexual encounter with a man and his 12-year-old son.
    
The Independent Record reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/XD1v8p) the man found a police officer waiting for him instead.
    
Mark Steven Mlekush has been charged with attempted sexual intercourse without consent and attempted sexual abuse of children.
    
A Justice Court affidavit says a Helena police officer found the 48-year-old Mlekush online trying to meet a father and son.
    
Investigators posing as a father responded to the man. The affidavit says Mlekush described the sex acts he wanted to engage in and emailed pictures of his genitals.
    
The investigators arranged a meeting and arrested Mlekush when he showed up.
    
Mlekush was being held in Lewis and Clark County jail.
