“I have nothing but positive things to say about my interactions with Mr. Henderson,” one teacher said.
Henderson's attorney said his client didn't know how to get out of the relationship.
“He said he just sort of felt trapped,” Henderson’s attorney said. “He didn’t know what to do or how to get out of it, so it just continued.”
Police say the now-graduated high school student told friends about the relationship earlier this year after Henderson stopped meeting her for the rendezvous.
“She was going to be the one seeking out communication,” Henderson’s attorney said.
On Wednesday, over the prosecutor’s objections, the judge set bond for Henderson at $25,000. Neither he nor any friends can contact the victim or witnesses.
