The dean of students at Eisenhower High School in Blue Island has been charged with solicitation of a sex act, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office.

Terrence Murphy, 48, of Bellwood had two previous run-ins with the sheriff's undercover vice unit, the sheriff's office said.

Murphy replied to a Backpage.com advertisement on Thursday and when he arrived at the hotel in Proviso Township, he recognized the woman as a sheriff's police officer from a previous operation. The sheriff's office said Murphy tried to leave, but was arrested by sheriff's police.

Murphy is charged with solicitation of a sex act, which is a misdemeanor.
