Kankakee Priest Admits Molesting Youth

Chicago Tribune
May 10, 1993

A 51-year-old Roman Catholic priest has pleaded guilty to one count of child molesting involving videotaped sexual acts between him and a teenage boy. Rev. Myles Patrick White pleaded guilty Friday in Marshall Superior

Court, where Judge Eugene Chipman accepted a plea agreement similar to one he rejected a month ago. White was sentenced to four years in prison, to run concurrently with a similar sentence in Illinois on a criminal sexual assault conviction involving the same teenage boy he molested in Indiana. White was arrested last summer after the discovery of a videotape showing sexual acts between him and the boy. Investigators found that White fondled and had oral sex with the boy in Culver, Ind., and at another home he kept in Kankakee, Ill., where he was pastor of a parish.
