LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - In federal court Friday morning, former Lubbock dentist Jason White filed his intent to plead guilty to one count of production of child pornography. He faces 15 to 30 years in federal prison. Under the plea deal, White will plead guilty to count 9 of the indictment. He was charged with 16 counts related to child pornography.

He will have to register as a sex offender and will have supervised release from five years to life. His sentencing date has not been set. He is still facing state charges of sexual performance by a child.

In the federal court documents, White admitted to the offense of enticing “John Doe 15″ to engage in sexually explicit conduct for photos or videos.

On December 31, 2009, White agreed that he was 29 years old, and John Doe 15 had just turned 17 years old and was attending high school in Lubbock, Texas. The federal court document says White produced a video of himself performing oral sex on John Doe 15, and using and sharing a sex toy.

Court documents also reveal White produced more videos of child pornography with John Doe 15 all depicting similar conduct as in the video produced on December 31, 2009. These additional videos were produced on January 6, 2010, January 12, 2010, June 6, 2010, November 14, 2010, November I7, 2010, November 24, 2010, and November 24, 2010.

In each of these videos, John Doe 15 was 17 years old. Each video is considered child pornography.

At some point after producing the seven videos described above, White uploaded the videos to his Dropbox internet storage account. Law enforcement discovered the Dropbox account during a search of White’s business and residence on January 14, 2021.
