Rev. Edwin White has been in the news before, for his stance against violence.

"You've got to be a beacon to your community," he told AL.com on MLK Jr. Day in Mobile in 2014.

White was arrested by a U.S. Marshal and charged with three counts of child sex abuse in reference to a grand jury indictment on Wednesday.

"The crime was not related to the church," Mobile County DA Ashley Rich told AL.com Wednesday morning.

Mobile Police officer Terence Perkins said that there were three female victims who came forth in early 2015. They were all three from White's family.

White has been arrested 12 times before, for issues such as failing to pay child support and domestic violence.

He was also arrested once before for child sex abuse, in 2009.

White is known for organizing events such as the MLK Jr. Day march.

A local minister is back behind bars after officials say he sexually abused a child while out on bond :rolleyes:and his wife allegedly tried to cover it up.

According to the First Baptist Church of Prichard website, Edwin White is an associate minister. His wife, Lakisha White was also arrested on a charge of “hindering prosecution.”

White was arrested back in October on three sex abuse charges, accused of sexually abusing three young girls under the age of 12. A grand jury indicted him. He bonded out while waiting for his trial.

It was after he bailed out of jail, that police say White sexually abused one of the young girls again. Assistant District Attorney Nicki Patterson says his wife told the young girl not to tell anyone.

This isn’t the first time White has been in trouble with the law. Records show he’s been arrested 12 times on many different charges. He was also accused of child sex abuse in 2009 but was never prosecuted.

White is currently in Metro Jail waiting on a bond hearing set for Friday morning. Patterson says they will be requesting no bond.

Lakisha White bonded out about an hour after being booked.
