Former Mt. Vernon Man Facing Multiple Sexual Assault Charges

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department’s Warrant Wednesday list included a 46-year-old former Mt. Vernon man wanted for alleged sexual assault of an underage girl.

Arlondo K. Henson has been formally charged in Jefferson County Court with Class 1 felony criminal sexual assault.

According to court records, prosecutors claim that on Oct. 17, 2010, Henson had non-consensual sexual contact with a minor.

However, Henson has been held in a St. Martin Parish, Louisiana jail since April when he was arrested there for alleged sexual assault of a juvenile there.

According to local news stories, Henson was arrested April 15, in St. Martin Parish and is being held on formal charges of first-degree rape and one count of carrying of firearm by convicted felon.

Henson will ultimately be brought back to Illinois to face the charge in Jefferson County where his bail is set at $100,000.
