John Dexter, a 60 year old prep-school headmaster who was arrested in a cybersex sting, repeatedly asked his teenage chat-room playmates to send him porno photos of themselves. Dexter, the head of Manhattan's elite Trevor Day School, e-mailed pornographic pictures of underage girls to undercover cops he believed were 14 and 15 year old girls and kept urging them to provide pornographic pictures of themselves. He was freed in $25,000 bail after being charged with two counts of dissemination of indecent material to minors. If convicted, he faces up to four years in jail.

Dexter was slapped with additional charges on November 12, 2003, for possessing child pornography. He was arraigned on 10 counts of possessing pictures of obscene sexual performance by a child - kids under 16. There was no evidence linking the children in the images with students at Trevor Day, according to Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro.

Dexter pleaded guilty on April 28 to having perverted online sex chats and possessing child pornography and was slapped with new kiddie-porn charges yesterday.  The Manhattan district attorney's office filed the charges against him after three sexually graphic pictures of young girls were found on computer discs in his office at the school following his arrest by Westchester County authorities last October 27.  One of the photos showed a girl 12 years or younger having sex with two men.
