Percy Hynes White “threw parties in his basement, planning with his friends to invite women they thought were sexy to get them drunk and smoke enough to have sex with them, while lying that he himself was stoned and drunk,” supports a young woman who says she was also attacked. “He faced allegations of rape and abused the victims. He posted nude photos of them online against their will.”
