GUILTY: Verdict reached for Charles Todd Henderson
It took a Jefferson county jury less than six hours Thursday night and Friday morning to convict suspended District Attorney Charles Todd Henderson of perjury. Henderson, a democrat, who was elected last November, has never served a day in office. Governor Kay Ivey now will appoint someone to fill Henderson's term.
Henderson was charged with perjury in connection with his relationship to a woman getting a divorce. Henderson had been appointed guardian ad litem to the couple's daughter. The state told the jury Henderson lied under oath when asked if he spent the night with the woman. That woman has since become his wife.
