BOSTON, June 5, 2024 –A Suffolk County grand jury has indicted a Jesuit priest and former teacher at Boston College High School on a charge of raping a student at the school between 2008 and 2009, Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden announced.

KEVIN WHITE, 62, of Weston will be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court on June 27 on one count of rape and abuse of a child.  White, who resided outside of Massachusetts from 2010 to 2021, was indicted on Friday. White was a theology teacher at the school.

Additional information will be released at White’s arraignment.

“All teachers, and all religious officials, are figures of authority and have a professional and moral obligation to always wield that authority properly and appropriately. Our office will provide this former student continual support as this case moves forward,” Hayden said.
