Jason White, former Lubbock dentist, who accepted a plea deal for 30 years in prison in September 2021 for admitting to producing child pornography on a number of victims filed an appeal, but his appeal was denied this week by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

According to KAMC, White attempted to argue the Commerce Clause was not used in the correct way in his case.

In his appeal, White argued that the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution only authorized the federal government to regulate commercial activity and that an object traveling through different states was not a commercial act.

The statement of facts White signed along with his guilty plea said he produced the child pornography “using materials that had been mailed, shipped or transported in or affecting” commerce between different states or another country.

The Fifth Circuit did not agree with White and his appeal was denied.

White remains in federal prison in Florida.
