Former Deputy Brian Edward Henry Accused of Soliciting Tenn

A former Montague (mahn-TAYG') County deputy is accused of soliciting sexual favors from a 16-year-old girl during a traffic stop.

Brian Edward Henry has been free since posting $102,000 in bonds after his arrest last month following his indictment, which initially was sealed. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

The 27-year-old Roanoke man faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of indecency with a child charge and a year in jail if convicted of official oppression.

Montague County District Attorney Jack McGaughey (mah-GOY') says Henry's arrest is unrelated to a jail scandal that rocked the county on the Red River. Earlier this year 17 people, including the former sheriff and some jailers, were indicted on charges of having sex with inmates or bringing them drugs.
