TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ A federal grand jury indictment accuses a former elementary school computer specialist of using the Internet to try to arrange a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old girl.

Zachary Wayne Clark, 24, of Broken Arrow was arrested Feb. 8 by members of the Oklahoma Innocent Images Task Force. He was indicted Monday.

U.S. Attorney David O'Melia said an undercover FBI agent posing as a girl used the Internet to communicate Oct. 10 and Feb. 28 with Clark, who was seeking a meeting with the girl.

Clark was arrested at a fast-food restaurant near a major intersection where it was alleged he was to meet the girl.

Clark was a computer specialist at Jarman Elementary School. He is no longer employed by the Union School District.
