Melvin White, who has been arrested 10 times in Montgomery County on charges of enticing or assaulting children, was ordered yesterday for violating the conditions of his probation on a 1976 enticement conviction.

White, 56, whose last address was in Wheaton, must now serve two years that had been suspended as part of a three-year sentence he had received in connection with that 1976 conviction.

White violated his probation by allegedly driving while intoxicated and fleeing police who were searching for him. Police at the time were investigating complaints that a man fitting White's description had allegedly been accosting girls at Potomac elementary school and the Potomac shopping center.

On Friday, White faces an additional five years in prison for violating his probation on a separate conviction for exposing himself to a minor.

At the time, he was arrested for the traffic violation, White had been mistakenly freed on a $1,000 bond while awaiting an appeal of a five-year sentence he received last October for attempting to kiss an 8-year-old girl in a school playground, according to a spokeswoman for the state's attorney's office. White was released due to a mixup in court records, she said.
