Robbinsdale Man Sexually Assaulted Girl

A 39-year-old Robbinsdale man has been charged with molesting an 11-year-old girl he met online, the Star Tribune reported.

Dennis Roy White, who was convicted of criminal sexual conduct almost 10 years ago, was charged with one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct in Dakota County District Court.

Investigators spoke with the young girl who said she met White at an Apple Valley park after chatting with him online, the charges said. The girl told police that White kissed her and touched her chest and inside her pants while at the park.

According to the charges, White told police he had agreed to met a female online and went to the park to meet her, but drove away when he saw the girl's age.

White was convicted of the same charge in 1999. White is currently in the Dakota County jail in lieu of $400,000 bail. According to a second report, White faces up to 25 years in prison, a $35,000 fine, or both, if convicted.

Authorities used White’s e-mail address to locate and arrest him.
