WASECA — A former school bus driver received a stayed prison sentence last week after pleading guilty to five felony counts of child pornography possession in March.

Arthur Mlenek, 70, will serve 180 days in jail and undergo sex offender treatment as part of his 10-year probation. He must also register as a predatory offender and cannot have any contact with minors. He could serve 39 months in prison if he violates his probation.

Mlenek was charged in April 2014 with 19 counts of felony possession of child pornography. He worked as a school bus driver in the Waseca school district at the time.

His arrest and prosecution resulted from a BCA investigation of pornographic images he exchanged with a St. Paul man.
