Prosecutors filed charges Wednesday against a woman accused of twice having sexual contact with a boy, once when he was about 10 years old in 2011 and again about a year later.

Bonnie Lynn White, 35, who faces two felony counts of sexual assault, appeared by video from the county jail in Yellowstone County Justice Court, where Judge Pedro R. Hernandez set her bond at $50,000.

According to charging documents, the alleged victim, who is now 13 years old, disclosed the contact to a counselor in February.

In a March interview with an investigator in Lovell, Wyo., the boy said that White pushed him onto a bed, pulled off his clothes and fondled him while he was in Billings in January 2011 for a friend’s birthday party.

The boy said that White threatened to hurt him and his family if he told anyone. He also told the investigator, according to prosecutors, that White again fondled him about a year later when she took him and others to a water park.

He said that White again threatened to hurt him and his family if he told anyone.

“Multiple children have made independent disclosure of being sexually assaulted by the Defendant,” charging documents say.

According to prosecutors, she is facing charges for similar conduct in Wyoming.

A prosecutor said Wednesday that White is facing six similar counts involving three victims, including the victim in this case, in other jurisdictions.

Charges against White in Big Horn County, Wyo., were sealed by court order, according to the Big Horn County Clerk of Court's office.

White is scheduled to appear in Yellowstone County District Court for arraignment on June 19.

Felony sexual assault carries a prison sentence of between four and 100 years.
