The Gilman School's dean of students has been arrested on a federal charge that he used the Internet to try to entice a 14-year-old girl to meet him to have sex. Geoffrey C. Stewart, 31, of the 1300 block of Southview Road, was arrested Nov. 7 when investigators say he went to Towson Town Center expecting to meet "Jeni," which turned out to be an undercover alias for a Baltimore County detective and an FBI agent. Stewart, who court records indicate came to Baltimore from North Carolina in September to work at Gilman, was put on administrative leave by the Roland Park boys school after his arrest, school spokesman Patrick Smithwick said.

What were his outside interests? What about athletics? Did he coach? Then he was asked whether he objected to being called by his first name. The question didn't come from the head of the school or other administrators or teachers - it came from a student.

One day before he was arrested in an Internet sting for trying to entice a 14-year-old girl into sexual relations last fall, the Gilman School's former dean of students had sex with a 16-year-old girl he met in an online chat room, investigators say. Geoffrey C. Stewart, 32, faces sentencing today on a federal charge stemming from the sting investigation. Prosecutors are expected to argue that the new information about the sexual encounter with the 16-year-old girl, along with attempted sexual contact with two other teen-age girls online in the months before his arrest, illustrate why Stewart should receive a lengthy prison term.
