The San Francisco man convicted of six felonies related to trying to engage in lewd acts with two teenage girls was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison and will have to register as a sex offender for life, said San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Marlon Monton, 28, contacted two teenage girls on their way to school Dec. 16 and handed them a note that said “hook me up” that also had his phone number on it before driving away in his black SUV.

The girls gave the note to their principal, who contacted police. A San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office detective texted Monton pretending to be one of the teenage girls and they arranged to meet at a Kohl’s parking lot. Monton agreed to bring marijuana and beer.

When he arrived at the parking lot, he had beer and a bottle of “Hot & Sexy Lotion,” Wagstaffe said. He was then placed under arrest.

Monton was convicted July 10 of two felony counts of attempted lewd acts on a child under 15 and with a 10-year age difference, two felony counts of communicating with a minor for the purpose of engaging in a lewd act, and two felony counts of arranging and going to a meeting place for the purpose of engaging in a lewd act with a minor, Wagstaffe said.

Monton returned to court Tuesday and was denied probation and sentenced to two years in prison, Wagstaffe said.

He will be required to pay restitution to the victims and their parents and will have to register as a sex offender for life, Wagstaffe said. He remains in custody.Bay Area NewsCrimeCrime & CourtsLewd acts with a minorMarlon MontonSan Mateo County District Attorney's Office
