Charges stem from spring 2011 encounters in southwest Missouri

Russellville teacher faces sex charges

Russellville High School’s new head basketball coach began the school year on paid leave.

Scott White, 41, was charged last week in Barry County with four counts of first-degree statutory rape for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a child younger than 14. He was arrested Tuesday and released on a $25,000 bond after Barry County Judge Victor W. Head reduced the original bond set on Aug. 13.
