BOLIVIA, NC (WWAY) — Four warrants were issued Thursday for Boiling Spring Lakes Mayor Richard White.

Now, the alleged victim is speaking out. She says what happened may have cost White his job with the Brunswick County District Attorney’s Office.

The alleged victim, who we’ll call “Rachel,” says she filed charges Thursday, but this is not the first time she has complained about the situation with Richard White.

“I originally went to the DA’s office back in April,” Rachel said. “The first of April, and I reported this to the District Attorney at that time.”

Rachel says she told the District Attorney about the situation, because that’s where she originally met White, who was working as a detective for the DA’s office. She says White continually came on to her although she told him to stop.

“The physical contact was unwanted,” Rachel said. “I told him repeatedly that I did not want his physical advances, but he would continue to put his hands on me, and try to kiss me and touch me in ways that he knew I did not want him to do.”

Rachel says after she told the District Attorney’s office about what happened, White resigned from his position there. She says she pressed charges Thursday, because she feels that something else needed to be done.

Rachel took out four warrants against White, including three counts of sexual battery and one count of assault on a female.

The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office says it has contacted White. He told deputies he was out of town until Monday, but he would turn himself in when he got back into the county.

We tried to talk to White, but he did not return our calls.

When dealing with Richard White, I have always found him quite professional. It is difficult for me to believe what has been reported here. I think something is very wrong with this picture and hopefully it will all come out during the investigation.

Is that where you got her phone number, Charlie? Man, you sure are sticking your neck out for someone who is as worthless as White!!!!! You WILL get caught! And just a reminder, Susan’s business is none of yours….it is White who is the “guilty one”, not Susan! Let’s keep the focus on him!

Anyone can say anything to the magistrate to get charges taken out. Lets wait and see how the evidence pans out.
