Tow truck owner found not guilty

Micky Henson, M & M Towing owner, has been found not guilty of rape 1 and kidnapping 1.

The verdict was handed down in Marion County Circuit Court Tuesday morning, with Judge Susan Tripp presiding.

“We think the evidence was clear that the complainant was not entirely reliable,” said Gig Wyatt, Henson’s attorney.

Henson was arrested Feb. 28.

A probable cause statement released by the Marion County Sheriff's Office included graphic descriptions of Henson’s alleged forceful rape and captivity on Feb. 17 with a female on River Road.

Wyatt confirmed Henson initially denied having sex with his employee, but later stated the sex was consensual.
