Man Applies to be a State Trooper, Ends Up Charged with a Sex Crime

MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Police say a Pennsylvania man applying to become a state trooper has been arrested after saying during a polygraph pretest that he had sex with an underage girl four years ago.

State police say 29-year-old Joseph Adam White, of Hartstown, was at the Meadville barracks Jan. 15 for his police cadet lie detector exam. They say during the pretest, he told the examiner he had consensual sex and other contact with the girl in 2011. She is now 19.

Police say they charged White on Thursday with four counts of unlawful sexual contact with a minor and 10 counts of corruption of minors after interviewing the woman and corroborating that information.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for White, and he doesn’t have a listed phone number.
