Potential Pennsylvania Trooper Arrested For Admitting To Sex With Teen
A wannabe Pennsylvania state trooper ended up in cuffs after admitting to previously having underage sex during the recruitment process’s polygraph test.
Joseph Adam White was at the Meadville barracks to take his state police cadet lie detector exam on Jan. 15 when he made the startling revelation, reports The Patriot-News.
The 29-year-old reportedly told the examiner that he’d had consensual sex with an underage girl, who is now 19, four years ago.
It’s not clear what prompted him to make the confession.
But his alleged victim was then interviewed and confirmed the claims.
White, from Hartstown in Crawford County, was arrested on Thursday and charged with four counts of unlawful sexual contact with a minor and 10 counts of corruption of minors.
He was arraigned hours later before Magisterial District Judge Rita Marwood, reports the Meadville Tribune.
He is currently holed up in the Crawford County jail in lieu of $25,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is set for Friday.
First and foremost, this guy is a scumbag. That said, did he REALLY think he would be immune from arrest by being honest about such a sick crime? While trying to become a police officer no less…SMH
