Sex offender charged with enticing two Juneau girls

Girls ran away, parents filed citizen arrest reports, man arrested

A registered sex offender was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of criminal child enticement.

According to police reports, Nicholas Matthew Adam Mularchuk, 28, allegedly enticed two girls, ages 12 and 14, by stating “Come in if you want to have a good time.”

As the girls ran away, Mularchuk stated again, “Come back, I can show you a good time,” according to the police report.

The police reports show the incident took place at Mularchuk’s residence in the 8600 block of Hayes Way in the valley off Tongass Boulevard.

The two girls are friends, according to the report. The 12-year-old told a police officer she ran away because she thought Mularchuk was a “rapist,” the police citation said.

The mother of the 12-year-old girl and the father of the 14-year-old girl both filled out a citizen’s arrest report charging Mularchuk with child enticement. He was arrested by JPD Friday evening at his residence around 7:40 p.m. The JPD Daily Bulletin shows that alcohol was involved in the arrest.

Mularchuk was arraigned over the weekend by a deputy magistrate judge and a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf. City public defender Thomas Wagner was appointed to represent him, court records show. Reached by phone Tuesday afternoon, Wagner declined to discuss the case for this story.

Court records indicate Mularchuk is being held in custody on $1,500 cash bail and is next scheduled to appear in court for a pretrial hearing on May 14. Juneau District Court Judge Thomas Nave scheduled a jury trial for May 22.

Court records show that Mularchuk told the court that he is a registered sex offender.

According to Offendex, an online sex crime database, a listing for a man with the same name, age and description as Mularchuk states he was court-martialed by the U.S. Army in Fort Stewart, Fla., and convicted of sodomy on Feb. 2, 2008.

Court records show child enticement is an unclassified misdemeanor.

The total amount suggested to be cut by his temporary cabinet was $300 million, which tore funding from a variety of different programs. However, although what propositions Cowper accepted were still a mystery, Press Secretary David Ramseur confirmed that the cuts he did accept totaled at about $200 million. Cowper was to give a speech directly to the Alaska Legislature discussing the specifics of his recommended cuts.
