Man charged with child sexual abuse
The Paducah Police Department says a Mayfield man, accused of sexually abusing a girl younger than 12 years old, was arrested Thursday.
The police department said a Paducah man told officers in July that 19-year-old Devante A. White had inappropriately touched his daughter. Detectives investigated, and White went to the police department Thursday for an interview.
White is acquainted with the girl’s family, and police say he said in the interview that he touched the girl’s groin area.
He was arrested on a charge of first degree sexual abuse of a victim less than 12 years of age and jailed in the McCracken County Regional Jail.
