SANTA FE – A former Los Alamos resident charged with violating the parole sentence he received on sexual misconduct charges almost three years ago appeared in Los Alamos District Court Thursday for the purposes of a parole violation status hearing.

Stephen Geisik, 27, of Hernandez, was arrested by New Mexico State Police on Feb. 23 and is being held in the Los Alamos County Detention Center.

He is charged with violating the 20-year parole sentence he received April 6, 2015. At that time he pleaded guilty to three counts of criminal sexual contact of minor second degree (child under 13) and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of minor.

He appeared before Judge Mary Marlowe-Sommer Thursday after the filing of a notice of alleged probation violation, of reopening of case and of hearing. During Thursday’s hearing the judge set Geisik’s next appearance for April 5 for the purpose of a parole violation arraignment.

Following his 2015 sentence, Geisik was released to supervised probation and required to register as a sex offender in the County of Los Alamos.

He moved to Hernandez on July 5, 2017, and registered as a sex offender with the Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Department in Española.

On Feb. 23 he was arrested by NMSP and charged with Abuse of a Child-Negligently Cause (no death or great bodily harm) and Abuse of a Child-Intentional (no death or great bodily harm) and was transported without incident to LACDC, where he remains following Thursday’s appearance in district court.
