Cassandra Renae White is a 34-year-old Davis High School English teacher from Oklahoma who took out a marriage license in the attempt to marry a 16-year-old student. According to the Davis school district, White has been fired after taking out a marriage license to marry a 16-year-old sophomore. Officials from the district say that they’re cooperating with law enforcement, but White has not been arrested or charged with any crime. The teacher goes by the nickname of “Cassie.”
The 16-year-old boy’s Facebook page shows that he plays football at his high school and had a teenage girlfriend.
“I love football Fridays! Let’s go Wolves!” said Cassandra White on her Facebook page. Her page is also full of pictures of her three small children.
Local television stations uncovered the fact that White and the teenage boy had applied for a marriage license with the boy’s father’s consent. These news stations obtained court records which back up this claim, making it a verifiable fact. Court records “show a Cassandra Renae White, 34, and a 16-year-old boy, filed for a marriage license in Cleveland County on December 13, which was signed off by the teen’s father. A 16-year-old can be married with parental consent,” reported Oklahoma News 4 television station.
According to court records, White paid $50 for the marriage license in Cleveland County, Oklahoma.
“The next day, Thursday, December 14, White was no longer employed by the Davis Public Schools,” the News 4 television station added, reporting that “Davis Police officers showed up at the Cleveland County Courthouse Thursday to look into the marriage license filing, as a part of the investigation. News 4 is not naming the teen, as he is the potential victim of a sex crime.”
Newson6 reported, “Police in Davis say they were investigating reports of a teacher having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year old student when the two went ahead and did something police never expected. They applied for a marriage license.”
Here’s a look at the marriage license issued for White and the teenage boy:
The Teenage Boy’s Father is “Sick About It”
The boy’s father spoke with Newson6 about the odd situation between White and his son. “I’m sick. I’m sick about it. I didn’t want it to happen,” said the boy’s father before saying he agreed for the two to be married. “I weighed out the ups and downs of it and I thought, ‘Who am I?’ So, he asked me to do something. I did it.”
The boy’s Facebook is full of selfies and his status says “in a relationship.” He named a teenage girl as the person who had stolen his heart, naming her his girlfriend. One photo of dirtbikes is captioned, “evening date!”
The Davis School District released a statement regarding the marriage license incident.
“The district is currently cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation of these allegations,” the statement said. “The teacher in question is no longer employed by Davis Schools.” According to KTEN-TV, the district refused to comment further “because of the ongoing criminal investigation and the confidentiality rights of the parties involved.”
One upset mother spoke with Heavy.com about the incident. She’s a parent with a child who goes to Davis High School and she said, “I would like for the staff to do something to ensure these kinds of things don’t happen again. A relationship between a TEACHER and a student should NEVER be overlooked, even if the parent does give consent.”
Who is Cassandra Renae White?
Cassandra White is a single mother, former English teacher and once directed sports clubs. She has three young children. White goes by the name “Cassie” on her Facebook page and has yet to comment on the allegations.
The teenage boy’s father spoke with Newson6 and said that he doesn’t want White to lose her three children. He added that his son is almost 17-years-old and did not have sex with the teacher.
According to The New York Post, “No arrests have been made, but rape charges could be filed against White if she was involved in a sexual relationship with the teen. It is illegal for a teacher to have sex with a student enrolled in the same school system.”
