White was arrested on June 4, 2020, and is facing 1 charge of Lewd, Indecent or Lewd Acts with a Child Under 16, 1 count of Manufacturing Child Pornography and 1 count of Beastiality.

This investigation began in January 2020 after Virginian authorities informed the OSBI about images that were tracked to the Jones, Oklahoma area.

During the investigation, OSBI agents determined the images were of a 14-month-old child and were taken in November 2018.

That led to arrest Joseph Rogers on May 29, 2020, a family member of the baby.

Electronics seized after Rogers’ arrest revealed both Rogers and White had committed sexual crimes against the child.

Additionally, it was discovered the pair were violating a pet.

White’s court date is set for later this year.
