NEW LEBANON, N.Y. - John White now has two warrants out for his arrest after allegedly sending sexually explicit text messages to a teen girl and, according to court documents, faces new charges after he tried to contact the 14-year-old victim again on Monday.
In February, 40-year-old John White of Stephentown was charged with aggravated harassment and endangering the welfare of a child after authorities say he sent sexually explicit text messages to a 14-year-old girl. According to court documents, the texts consisted of sexual dreams and other sexual comments.
But, police say White skipped out on his last court appearance and has since been charged with violating an order of protection and is wanted by the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
The victim and her mother were paralyzed by fear again recently, after White allegedly called the family's home asking for the girl on Monday night.
On Tuesday, White was charged with criminal contempt and aggravated harassment, and the victim's mother is angry and determined to bring him to justice.
"I'm not giving up. I will do whatever I have to do to make sure that he is brought back and he suffers consequences for his actions," the mother of the teen victim said. "I'm not going to be somebody that's just going to throw my hands in the air and walk away."
White was first charged on February 8, 2013 after Scott Adams, the father of the victim's friend called police when he saw the messages come in to the girl's phone. He told the NEWS CENTER what was in those text messages was beyond disturbing.
The Columbia County District Attorney's office says White is now in Alabama and they will bring him back here to face justice.
