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.

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.

The release says Prater 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.”

In July 2011, Prater initiated charges accusing a man of making harassing phone calls and assaulting her by grabbing her arm, according to court records. The charges were dismissed by the district attorney’s office for lack of evidence. In turn, the man brought charges accusing Prater of making harassing phone calls and stalking him. The court issued a judgment against Prater in November.

Regardless of Praters situation or invalid testimony, Richard White is definitely no gentleman or hero.

Outside of his public persona is a very deeply disturbed and perverse individual who himself has hurt and destroyed many lives in his path.

God help anyone trying to expose him and get SOMEONE, ANYONE in the leagal world of law to make this man accountable for Whites foul and perverse behaviors.

Our entire family and friends hope the baby is not thrown out with the bath water regarding White due to one womans failure to bring truth to the surface due to possibly her own personal issues, psychological, emotional, drama.. etc..

No matter what we all know the reap what you sow law is true for every person and NOBODY gets away with anything at the end of the day! Thank You!
