White allegedly asked to touch and smell the victim's feet in exchange for nicotine vapes and marijuana products. The first known offense began in April 2021, police said.

"White also received various sexual acts from the victims," the arrest report said.

White used Snapchat and Instagram to contact and discuss the details of their meetings, police said.

White was interviewed by detectives on Wednesday and admitted to meeting with multiple females all under the age of 16, according to deputies.

White was charged with seven counts of lewd and lascivious molestation, lewd and lascivious battery, lewd and lascivious conduct and two counts of unlawful use of a two-way communications device.

He's being held in Pinellas County Jail on $200,000 bond.

According to Florida state law, the crime of lewd or lascivious conduct by a person 18 or older is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison, 15 years of sex- offender probation and a $10,000 fine.

The most recent data by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement says 3,471 fondling offenses, including lewd or lascivious conduct, were reported in 2018. There were 625 arrests that year, which included 106 juveniles and 519 adults.
