Prosper Police released search warrants for the homes of Darius McClinton-Hunter and Garrick White. Investigators said they had reason to believe the pair may have cell phone video related to the allegations of sexual assault against three high school girls.
Prosper police searched the homes of two Prosper High School students accused of sexual assault for videos of child pornography, according to search warrants.
Darius McClinton-Hunter, 17; Garrick White, also 17; and three juveniles, all students at Prosper High School, are charged in two allegations of sexual assault.
In the request for search warrants for McClinton-Hunter and White, Prosper police said investigators had reason to believe the pair used cellphones to record the sexual assaults of children younger than age 17 and shared the videos with other people.
The search warrants, which were released Friday, specifically ask for any and all electronic devices that could hold videos of any type of child porn, including but not limited to thumb drives, cellphones, desktop computers and laptop computers.
The two searches were carried out Monday.
The arrest affidavits released Thursday seem to add credibility to Thursday's assertion by McClinton-Hunter's attorney, Todd Shapiro, that his accuser had recanted her allegations.
According to the arrest warrant for White, the girl told police that the two other girls with her at the apartment only talked about being pushed around by McClinton-Hunter when the three left and made no mention of sexually assault.
According to the arrest warrant for McClinton-Hunter, one of the girls told police she had been assaulted while the other girl held down to keep her from helping free her.
