Yolo County District Attorney Deanna Hays has filed an additional 18 charges in the statutory rape case against former girls football coach Troy Hensley. He now faces 44 felony counts.
A spokesperson from the DA office stated in an email, "The information provided through testimony of the victim at the preliminary hearing provided the necessary evidence to file additional charges."
Hensley was originally arrested May
30, 2013 on eight felony counts that included unlawful
sex with a minor, oral copulation, sexual penetration with a foreign
object with a person under 18 and threatening a crime with
intent to terrorize.
At that time he had been suspected of having a three-and a-half-month sexual relationship with a 17-year old girl, four months prior to her turning 18.
On June 3, 2013 the Yolo County DA added several additional dates to the complaint, accusing Henlsey of 24 counts of sex with a minor for dates ranging from May 31 to Aug. 31, 2012, along with the two felony threat charges for reportedly threatening to kill her if she told.
The victim was
interviewed during a preliminary hearing on Aug. 26, where she recounted
several additional incidents during the relationship that, she stated began
just after her 17th birthday.
The girl alleged that Hensley, her former powder puff football coach and boss at Bud’s Pub and Grill, began making comments and flirting with her in October 2011, one-month after she turned 17. She explained that they began texting and dating in November, and said that “sexual things” began in January 2012.
Yolo County Judge Dave Rosenberg ordered Hensley to answer to all 26 counts. His Superior Court arraignment was set for Sept. 23.
On Sept. 10, Hays filed 18 more felony charges against Hensley that include several additional charges of penetration with a foreign object and oral copulation with a minor under 18 years old.
The additional charges include dates beginning in January 2012, some for incidents occurring in Solano County. Hays is requesting that the Solano County District Attorney allow for prosecution of those charges in Yolo County.Hensley is currently out on $450,000 bail and required to wear a GPS monitoring system.
