Malden police say after an investigation, a man is facing a sodomy charge.

Police say Jennings Earl "Chris" White has been formally charged by the Dunklin County Prosecuting Attorney with statutory sodomy 1st degree.

The investigation began after Malden police got information regarding White being in possession of child pornography. 

As the investigation developed officers spoke with a minor who believed to have been a witness to the child pornography. 

The juvenile told police that White made sexual advances towards another juvenile by exposing himself to the juvenile and inappropriately touching the juvenile on more than one occasion.

Police say when questioned by officers, White acknowledged and waived his Miranda warning.

Police say he made a statement that he did have sexual contact with the juvenile but it only occurred one time.

White was being held in the Malden Jail pending extradition to the Dunklin County Justice Center. White's bond has been set at $100,000 cash.
