A 50-year-old Sutherlin man was arrested Thursday in connection with multiple charges of encouraging child sex abuse.

Daniel Ray White, 50, was lodged into the Douglas County Jail on three counts of encouraging child sex abuse in the first degree and two counts of encouraging child sex abuse in the second degree.

The charges are related to three photos and two videos he allegedly shared via the internet, according to a court document.

On Sept. 26, 2020, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip from internet email provider Yahoo! pertaining to files that were believed to contain images of children in sexual poses. 

The Sutherlin Police Department launched its own investigation after notification of the images from Internet Crimes Against Children on Dec. 9, 2020,

The Yahoo! email address was traced to an internet protocol address managed by Charter Communications, which led to a physical address on Sherwood Drive in Sutherlin.

A search warrant on the address was served Jan. 7 at approximately 11:15 a.m. by Sutherlin police, Homeland Security and the Southern Oregon High Crimes Task Force.

When an arresting officer attempted to detain White, the suspect reportedly said the officer "must be here for his computer and he is going to prison," according to a court document.

The Shear Amount of Phedophiles in Douglas County is Unreall. In the last 5 years. No Less then 3 Police Officers, 3 Pastors or Church Leaders, 2 School Teachers & a Janitor. Then throw in the 20 Plus "men" from the surrounding communities. Looks like this is { Club Ped } of the PWN here in Douglas County.


Pedophiles sent to prison should just be put in general population, The other inmates will take care of the "short eyes" and save tons of taxpayer money having to house them for years.
