November 6, 2008
Federal prosecutor honored by FBI

From Denny Walsh:

Laurel White, an assistant U. S. attorney in Sacramento who has been a national force in prosecuting crimes against children, is the recipient of the 2008 FBI director's Community Leadership Award.

The annual award recognizes achievements in the areas of drug and violence education and prevention.

White has been a federal prosecutor for 19 years, and for the past nine years has focused primarily on crimes against children and Internet predators.

She also has been in the forefront of efforts to educate parents, children and schools about the dangers of the Internet and what can be done to keep children safe, the FBI said.

Acknowledging "we're not going to prosecute our way out of this crisis," White has worked tirelessly on her own time to prevent the exploitation of children through education, the FBI said.
