FIRST ON 3: BSL mayor surrenders after warrants issued, attorney responds


BOLIVIA, NC (WWAY) -- Boiling Spring Lakes Mayor Richard White turned himself in this morning after a woman took out warrants against him for three counts of sexual battery and one count of assault on a female.

The alleged victim says she met White in the office of District Attorney Jon David, where White worked as an investigator. White resigned from the job earlier this year.

In the warrants, the victim says White grabbed her by the shoulder holding and preventing her from moving while trying to force her to kiss him. She also says he rubbed the top area of her buttocks with his hand on her bare skin and also kissed her by sticking his tongue down her throat, pressing her breast against his body and placed his hands on the top area of her buttocks.

The victim says she told the district attorney about White's actions back in April. She says David then wanted her to file a formal complaint. Afterwards she says David called her the next day and said White no longer worked in the D.A.'s office.

This afternoon, White's attorney Bruce Mason released a statement saying the allegations against White are "entirely false."

"Law enforcement has already deemed these charges to be unsubstantiated and therefore declined to prosecute," Mason said. "The accuser in this matter has a substantial history of false claims against judges, law enforcement and other public officials. She has brought false criminal charges against individuals that have been dismissed by the Brunswick County District Attorney's Office."

We asked Mason to clarify which law enforcement agency investigated the claims and didn't prosecute. He said it was the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office. However, a spokesman for the BCSO says he doesn't know what Mason is talking about.

Mason said White expects to be exonerated and will pursue all legal remedies against his accuser.

He has no regard for how his actions affect another person- it's all about him getting his own personal little rocks off.
I believe every word that any woman says about him because because I know first hand how he uses his power and buddies to protect him.
Glad these women are speaking up but don't get your hopes up-
it has been proven for years that he can do and act however he sees fit on the backs of innocent women who didn't deserve his sexual abuse.


After the book is published, we could make a movie and title it "The Dark Side of White".

From sour grapes comes something sweet, be patient!

Manure factory

And from the Asses of cows comes manure. Helps things grow. Good things but choking weeds also. But the fact remains it is still just a bunch of BS!


Hi Folks! If you liked yesterday's write up on the blog, you're gonna love the new one. Check it out!

Connect the dots



I agree Keegan. It is HUGE alright. ANOTHER HUGE WHOPPER! And I am sure you are here to tell one and all how every single word is the truth. Sh*t man, she talks all about her "investigation(s)". Go back and check out who she says is on the committee to look for a new Police Chief. Even after being reported to the public in the newspapers, she can't even get that very simple little fact right and that is probably the least of her multitude of errors. Just give that some real thought. You claim to all that every thing she writes is the truth and she can not even find the truth as reported in the news. And there you are, in her little stand and pushing her kool aid! Your lack of credibility is only surpassed by hers. Oh man, it cracks me up. You can swear to that too. roflmao!

Sick of Her Lies

I like your handle because we are all sick of her lies. BTW, I hope you know that Keegan is really Susan even though she will deny it. The frustrating thing is all this stuff is like water off a duck's back. She is so convinced of her righteousness that in her mind, I am certain that she believes all the stuff she writes about. We probably should feel sorry for her because she is clearly mentally ill. Maybe she will go back to Tennessee where she came from almost three years ago. She still has Tennessee tags on her car in violation of North Carolina law. I for one would support granting her clemency if she would only leave. But then again, how could Brunswick County survive without her investigative skills. After all, we are all sooooo corrupt!

Susan is not Keegan

I understand why you may think they are one and the same but they are not. As you already know she lives on the Island. The Keegans (Mr & Mrs) live in Boiling Spring Lakes next door to a disgruntled fired and former BSL police officer, Curtiss Ledbetter. Ledbetter and the Keegans blame the mayor for Ledbetter's firing. They do not give a flying flip about her except they see her as a way to further their goal to go after the mayor. As you must have noticed from her ramblings, she is just not very believable. But the Keegans don't care about that and they are just once again rolling the dice. Anyway, it is certain there are the Keegans and there is her and they are comrades in arms but not the same people.

Sickof herlies

Now we have Keegan, Susan, Ledbetter all in one post here....and again, I have to remind y'all this is about-guess who?- the pervert in the mugshot who was told to leave all of his past jobs who has puppets sitting to the right and to the left of him at meetings that attacked a lady in an elevator and made all of the lady city employees afraid of him and assigned himself to a committee to hire a bad guy as chief of police because of some favor he owes.....quite a list, yes? It goes on and on!

To sick of. Her lies

So what does this have to do with Ledbetter and the Keegans? It is Whites picture on the news. Who cares where these other people live? I want to see White put down for his crimes! Seems there are many of them! Who wants someone like him in office? What if my wife gets "groped" by this idiot? And is my little girl safe in the neighborhood? I don't know and I don't want to find out!! You all just need to leave other people out of it and concentrate on the guilty party and read about the truth!

Please, learn to write in an educated manner.

You write, "It is Whites picture....". That should be White's and not "Whites". As far as who cares I guess nobody except others that are obviously involved. For example, "Keegan". You post here but you do not want anything stated accept something about White. Well, when you posted you put yourself in the mix. Also, others have mentioned Ledbetter and now Susan has mentioned Ballree. You are all in the mix now right along with White. You, are now part of the story. So while you are taking shots do not whine about shots taken at you. Just get used to getting something back when you throw something out. That is the way things are. BTW, while you are doing it, get your spelling and punctuation right. So it has to do with Ledbetter and the Keegans as they have been at the very least joined the conversation with questions as to these parties. Last but not least, they all have been involved with this hunt for years now.

..."anything stated 'except'

..."anything stated 'except' something about White" not 'accept' ......never professed to be perfect in the use of words, punctuation, and the likes, but I guess you can't either. Makes us even on that subject.

Now make the other corrections!

Sorry I could not get back to you sooner. Had a health problem but now I am back home and at the computer. I think it is just fabulous that you found the grammatical and spelling error! FANTASTIC FOR YOU! Now that you have proved you can do that, why don't you go back and correct all the lies and unfounded, unproven posts you have made. You have shown you can do it. So, do it or forever be known as just another, liar!

There would be an 'exception' and that would be if your actually believed all the crap that your neighbor has told you and you don't know much about his past. This could be very possible if you are not from here and were not around while he was building his own reputation. Start by talking with his ex-wives! BTW, has he hit you up for any cash yet?

Hey Mr. Correction

Wow! Guess Debbie said her say to you!! Guess YOU should have talked to his ex-wives before you said anything!!! Lol lol I will one day maybe get to meet her....have never heard anything bad about her so she must be a good lady! Guess you should take some advice and keep this issue about the one in the picture, huh? This isn't about my neighbor's reputation at's about White. It CERTAINLY has nothing to do with my neighbors ex. I have, however , had some things told to me that Whites ex has said about White!!!!

You said in an earlier post, I have mentioned Ledbetter and too, Emmett has been mentioned because we are all " in the mix" but we are not against those people....just White, and YOU might be next. As a group, we defend the innocent while you try to blame them for something (anything) to keep the attention away from your buddy...we all know that for a fact. Now you are stooping so low as to drag TOTALLY innocent others into the mix! Well, if Mrs. Smith wants, she can join our "caravan" and go after your a-- right along with White.

Thank you, Mrs. Smith (Debbie) for YOUR input. Don't be surprised if you see in here that you are really Susan P. or me, or someone else.....okay?


Dear Mr. *Now Make Other Corrections*, (whoever-you-are), I Am ONE of the-ex-wives. I don't know you, and actually, I don't know Mrs. Keenan. NEVER met her in my life. BUT, since YOU pulled ME into YOUR Little Bickering Conversation, I feel I have A Right to respond... I've lived here in BSL since 1977. I know more about Our City than I really want to know. If Mrs. Keenan wants to talk to me, I have NO problem with that whatsoever. YOU on the-other-hand, I DO have a Problem with. How Dare YOU, bring a subject up that YOU Sir Know NOTHING ABOUT!!! You Don't KNOW Me. And I Don't want to Know You! Because, I can already see that, by putting ME in your responses, You write things that You obviously make up as you go. My ex- husband and I BUILT a Life "Together". Not that it is ANY of Your business, We BOTH made Mistakes. That Sir... is why we are not together as of this day. I don't appreciate you implying that I ever gave my ex-husband any cash.(the statement-right after you asked her if he has hit her up for any cash) Do You Know What Would Be *FABULOUS* (apparently a WORD you like), if You Would PLEASE Leave Me OUT of Your OPINIONS next time. That Sir, Would Be *FANTASTIC*(another one of your words) Oh Yeah....DO I KNOW YOU?..because You're Obviously Too Scared to put Your Name on YOUR COMMENTS..Man UP!!! Have A Nice Day and God Bless, Debbie

We know all we need to know

We know all we need to know about our neighbor's past, thank you. He is one heck of a good guy. We know more than we need to know about White's past to know he is a real criminal who needs to be locked up for quite a few years!'s White doing with the lawsuit to rip some lady off for money? No one owes us a dime!!!


Nope. And he has never "hit on" my pretty daughters, never tried to rape someone in an elevator, in a parking lot, at their home, .....none of that, either!!!

How much does he owe YOU?


Wway, have you read the new blog by Susan Prater? This actually happened to her....I spoke with her lastnight and she was telling me what was going on while the people were checking to see if "John Q" was at the VFW (and he was). This blog is not fabricated! This is really going on and I feel all of this needs to be reported and stopped!!!! John Q has even told me he carries a that a threat? Why do they threaten just WOMEN? I am a woman with my opinion just like anyone else, and I noticed they pick on women more than anyone....cowards!

It was even written to me on here that I am, they think, a product of a brother/sister relationship. What does that have to do with anything??????? Childish!

She said it so it is true?????

So, she wrote it down and even more talking to you she said this actually happened to her. So everyone under the sun and heaven are to accept this as the gospel truth because, she said it and you believe it'? So if someone says you are an idiot and just one other person believes it, that would be true too, Right? You see that is the problem with your rant and the rants by this woman. People are expected to believe every word just on her and your word.

Check out what you have said and that is exactly what you want to happen. Again, she said it, you believe it, so it is true. Common sense pretty well shows, you have no common sense. Thank God for a justice system that requires proof and not just who can scream the loudest and the longest.

Uncertain (here we go with yet another guest name)

You poor thing!


Keegan, you put it out there and then you wonder why a person would reply. I have nothing to do with the vfw, I carry concealed to protect myself from very UNSTABLE people such as y'all. You have a poor judge of charachter and do not seem to exercise your inherient gut feeling of right and wrong. You or that man who lives in that house with you have broken the law, I have witnessed it first hand, and prompted by a then an ex city employee who more than knew better than to do the unlawful things that was done. Pick your friends better in the future. No threat was made to you I feel a threat from you and your ex city employee friend. You need to go brak up another tree. I have seen you in action.

John Q. Scales of Justice...whoever u want to be

You have seen me in action....doing what? I have NEVER broke the law you dork! WHAT man that lives in "that house with me"? You sound like some sort of nut....maybe I need to carry a

Oh, and btw....the concealed

Oh, and btw....the concealed post as written by "scales of Justice", but even tho John Q doesn't think I have a brain, I DO know that he uses several different "guest names on here. ( I found that out for sure after suspecting it) from a friend......of his!

Keegan, The All Knowing...WOW!

Oh Great and Omnipotent Master Keegan. Grace us more with your wisdom and truths. Thou quotes from great others. Some with names and some without. You speak with great instruments of value and knowledge as you prove your all knowing ways with such great words as, "...I found that out for sure after suspecting it from a friend...of his!" Oh great master of this universe that can obtain mere hearsay and know when it is the truth and when it is not. And thanks be unto you that you would grace us poor mortals in BSL with your blessings and guidance by sharing all the hearsay with us but at the same time assuring us as to the factual nature of such sayings. Ye that knows more than the courts. Ye that knows more than anyone. Ye that is so great and Omnipotent. We kneel before you and your army of dark angels and accept the words you speak as the gospel! Freakin NOT! When are you going to learn the rest of us are not idiots and we don't give a peddlers damn about your hearsay opinions. YOU AND YOUR CARNIVAL WACKED OUT BUDDIES AND FRIENDS ARE LESS THAN A CIRCUS AND JUST A POOR AND PITTIFUL JOKE. Your pitiful little caravan has been on this road for three years and you have yet to have the citizens in BSL to find you credible, in any way! And you insult them by calling them stupid. That is going to get you a whole lot of friends in the community, don't you know? Take a powder and get over it. The majority here just does not agree with you. They have not and they do not now.


I kid you not when I say ...."from a friend...of his" but swore I wouldn't tell on this friend and I believe what was told to me and passing it on to you and whoever wants to know.

If you feel the need to kneel to me and they as followers, so be it, but it isn't necessary. If your friends are anything like you, they all have very clean brains...mine have a clean reputation so I will stick to the ones I have now thank you!

According to the mail I have been receiving, I'm thinking alot of people are feeling a bit more impressed with my thinking than yours presently. Looks like they might want to join the caravan and they are more than welcome. It ain't over til it's over.


Work of fiction

I don't know why anyone would believe a word on Miss Prater's blog. It states at the very top that it is a work of fiction. This can be for only one of two reasons. First, she knows it is fiction, in which case taking out criminal warrants you know to be baseless is most likely a crime in itself. Or second, she believes what she writes to be true in her own mind, but is still sane enough to realize that it won't hold up under scrutiny if she is charged with libel and she thinks calling it fiction will giver her an out. I lean toward the later, as she never names her old BF or his attorney and has now removed Judge Warren's name from her blog, all I'm guessing due to court actions or threats of court actions. Either way, it doesn't make anything on that blog believable.
