Ex-school custodian charged with impregnating teen

GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) – A former Montgomery County Public Schools custodian is facing a sex offense charge for allegedly impregnating a 15-year-old girl he met on the internet.

County police say 27-year-old Gary Stanback contacted the teen on Facebook in November of 2015 and the two exchanged messages. Police say Stanback and the teen met on two occasions. During the second meeting police say Stanback coerced the teen into sex and she became pregnant. Police say the teen panicked and told her mother, who notified police.

Police say Stanback quit his job with the school district before he was arrested on June 1. The district released a letter to all parents notifying them of the charges.
