John White, 27, an instructional assistant at Lincoln Middle School, is accused of sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy in White’s home. White told detectives the teen had slept overnight at his home about 10 times, but he denied any sexual contact. Two male teenage foster children staying with White were removed by the Department of Child Services.
