News Release|

On January 17, an Arapahoe County jury found Jermaine Jay Quinata White, 38, guilty of sexually assaulting his three daughters and stepdaughter over the span of approximately 9 years.

Multiple agencies across the nation aided in building the criminal case against White, including the Aurora Police Department and three other law enforcement agencies in Texas (College Station Police Department, Bryan Police Department and Brazos County Sheriff’s Office).

In July 2022, the Aurora Police Department responded to a sexual assault call at a home in the 900 block of Havana Street. The victim, who was now 18 years old, reported that she had been sexually assaulted multiple times by her stepfather since she was 9. The victim also stated she became pregnant at 14 and had an abortion.

A few days after this case was reported to the Aurora Police Department, investigators learned that law enforcement in Texas were investigating reports of the victim’s three stepsisters being sexually assaulted by their father multiple times. At the time these allegations came to light in 2022, White’s stepdaughter was living in Aurora, while his three biological children were living in Texas with White’s sister.

In November 2022, White was officially arrested and charged for sexual assault crimes that occurred in Colorado between 2021 and 2022, although investigators obtained information that other sexual assaults may have occurred when the victims lived in Guam and Illinois. White’s stepdaughter and his three daughters all showed up to court to testify.

White was convicted of the following offenses:

Sexual Assault on Child by a Person in a Position of Trust – 7 counts

Aggravated Incest

Aggravated Sex Offense – 3 counts (Sentence Enhancer)

“These cases can be challenging to prove because these crimes often occur behind closed doors with very few witnesses, and thus take years to come to light,” Senior Deputy DA Jacob Kremin said. “The accounts of what happened to these children are unconscionable and horrific. They were exceptionally brave in speaking up about what was happening in their home, and the jury found their testimony to be credible. We hope that this verdict helps bring closure and justice to these victims.”

White faces a maximum sentence of 204 years to life in the Department of Corrections.

“These survivors were robbed of their childhood by a man who was supposed to love and protect them,” District Attorney John Kellner said. “There is no sentence that can restore their innocence and take away the trauma, but a lifelong prison sentence for this defendant can certainly assure the public and his family that they are safe.”
