Trial underway for Salisbury man accused of raping a minor

SALISBURY, Md. – A trial for a Salisbury man accused of raping a minor child that was living in the same house as him continued in the Wicomico County Circuit Court today.

According to court documents, 30-year-old Austin White faces a total of 11 counts, including second degree rape and the continued sex abuse of a minor. White allegedly conspired with another suspect, identified as Britney Hughes, to sexually assault a child in her care from 2013 to 2015.

The state says they are seeking a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years for White.

White pled guilty back in March to the neglect of a minor charge.
