A Kansas horse trainer is charged with raping a teenage girl.
Authorities arrested Steve White in late August after a minor came forward regarding incidents that allegedly occured in 2007.
White ran his lesson and boarding business, White Training Stable, in Augusta on leased property; his alleged victim was only 13 years-old at the time. The District Attorney says White has been charged with three counts of rape. Rate My Horse PRO contacted White’s defense attorney, but he had no comment regarding the case.
White is being held in the Butler County Jail on $150,000 bond. His jury trial has been scheduled for December.
