BURRILLVIILLE â€“ A Pascoag man will be in District Court in Providence this morning to answer charges he procured alcohol for three juvenile girls visiting his 106 Sayles Ave. home Monday evening.
Paul White, who also goes by his female identity, Christine, was taken into custody on the three counts and three additional charges of contributing to the delinquency of minors after police executed a warrant for his arrest at about 8 p.m. Tuesday, according to Burrillville Police Major Larry Guglietta.
The victims, an 11-year-old and 10-year-old from the Sayles Avenue area, and Paul Whiteâ€™s 10-year-old daughter, were all checked out at Hasbro Childrenâ€™s hospital after a teenager went to the White residence and took them to her home, according to police.
The teens were reported to have consumed vodka and other alcoholic beverages provided by White, according to Guglietta.
Local detectives had obtained a warrant for Whiteâ€™s arrest after conducting an investigation of the matter through the day on Tuesday and decided to take him into custody Tuesday evening for his protection in addition to the charges as a conflict with his neighbors appeared to be growing, Guglietta said. â€śHe is going to be held overnight for his safety and arraigned in District Court in the morning,â€ť Guglietta said.
Whiteâ€™s 10-year-old daughter was kept at Hasbro by the DCYF after the two other girls were released and will be held in protective custody while the case is investigated, according to Guglietta.
