ANTI-GAY PASTOR GUILTY OF PICKING UP BOY, 14
Rev. Craig Stephen White, a 40 year old Philadelphia pastor who has condemned homosexuality and was known for using a bullhorn to preach to passers-by at colleges, was convicted of soliciting sex from a 14 year old boy. He was convicted of criminal solicitation to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and related offenses. He faces a minimum three year prison term on the most serious charge. The charges stemmed from an incident in June, when White stopped in West Chester and asked the boy for directions. The boy said White also asked about strip clubs or adult book or video stores and later came back and offered him $20 for taking part in sexual activity. White denied making any sexual proposition and said he asked directions to a video store because he wanted to buy the movie Shrek for his children.
