Convicted Sex Offender Arrested at Montana Easter Egg Hunt

MISSOULA, Mont. -- Authorities in Montana say a convicted sex offender was arrested at a Missoula-area Easter egg hunt after one of his victims recognized him there.

Deputy Ken White tells the Missoulian that 67-year-old William Harvey Suthers was arrested Saturday afternoon in East Missoula and was being held in the county jail on a probation violation.

Suthers was convicted of two counts of sexual assault after a girl told police Suthers assaulted her while he was babysitting her and her brother in 1992. She was 10 at the time.

He was given a suspended sentence in 1998 and was forbidden from having contact with anyone under the age of 18 except his sons.
