On Wednesday, June 4, Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, announced that a federal grand jury sitting in Cleveland, Ohio, returned a one-count indictment charging Nicole White, 34, of Boardman, Ohio, with sexual abuse of a ward.


The indictment charges that on or about October 2013, White, who was a correctional counselor at the Northeast Ohio Correctional Center, engaged and attempted to engage in sexual acts with a federal inmate at the facility. 

If convicted, the defendant's sentence will be determined by the court after review of the defendant's prior criminal record, if any, the defendant's role in the offense and the nature of the violations.  

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General and the Bureau of Prisons.  The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David M. Toepfer.
