Judge denies request to dismiss perjury charge against Charles Todd Henderson

CHILTON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

A Chilton County judge denied a request to dismiss the perjury charge brought against suspended Jefferson County District Attorney Charles Todd Henderson.

Henderson is accused of lying to a judge in a divorce case about an alleged relationship with the mother whose child Henderson had been appointed to be a temporary guardian for in the case.

A grand jury in Jefferson County indicted Henderson after then-attorney general Luther Strange's office launched an investigation after receiving information from the Alabama State Bar in Dec. 2016.

Henderson and the woman at the center of this perjury case got married in Chambers County in September.
