BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A judge found Boiling Spring Lakes Mayor Richard White not guilty today of three counts of sexual battery and one count of assaulting a female.

Susan Prater swore out warrants against White last fall after she claimed White, who was an investigator in the District Attorney’s Office when the two met, touched her inappropriately and that she felt threatened.

On the stand today, Prater said she believe officials in the case and WWAY were involved in a conspiracy against her.

Prater testified for several hours Monday and for a couple of more hours today after a one-day break in the trial.

It was quiet in the courtroom after Judge Scott Ussery announced his verdict. He made it clear there would be no further discussion of the matter or there would be jail time.

Because of the involvement of a former employee of the Brunswick County District Attorney’s Office, a prosecutor from Fayetteville was brought in to hangle the case.

Susan has been doing this for years. Not too long ago, she posted a request for donations on her Blog. I couldn’t believe anyone would fall for it. Obviously, the poor gentleman from Iowa did. In a way, he deserves it. Susan’s Blog was laughable, but it worked for her, once again. She has hurt many people in Brunswick County with her false accusations and she has obviously profited from it. There is no downside for her because as my hero, W.C. Fields once said: “There is a sucker born every minute”.

Ever wonder how this woman supports herself with no job? Now we know.

Something is just off about this whole thing. It’s disturbing,how both parties and supporters of the both parties are acting like monkeys throwing pooh at each other. How can either one expect to be taken seriously?

My gut feeling says that the accuser isn’t telling the whole truth, and the sexual assault case was merely one to avenge the fact that she felt like she was wronged. The chip on her shoulder is glaringly obvious. It’s one thing to feel like a victim, it’s another to be the boy who cried wolf too many times. Not… Read more »

That lady is a joke. She lost again. The only person she ever mentions in her blog who has any criminal convictions is herself. Worst part is, she is trying to drag her poor, silly looking son into her madness…I hope she finds help and reality one day.
