Apparently there has been some major confusion over the identity of the man accused of raping a 5-year old boy in Murfreesboro by some local residents. William C. Henry was charged last week with three counts of the rape of a child. The Murfreesboro Police Department sent out a statement on Wednesday that said, “the William C. Henry that was arrested by the Murfreesboro Police Department is not William D. Henry Jr. that is a teacher in the Rutherford County School system.”
The man who was arrested, William C. Henry is a plumber in the Rutherford County Schools Maintenance Department. The 40-year old man is on unpaid suspension from the schools until the results of his case are determined by a judge.
According to a police report dated January 11th, Henry stated that he took advantage of the boy and that the child would come into his bedroom and sleep with him. Henry admitted to raping the child when questioned by Detective Tommy Roberts. The suspect will appear in court on February 21st.
Henry was booked under a $75,000 bond and as of Wednesday night (1/16/13), has not been released.
