Plea deal for Dixon man accused of unlawful relationship

By From page A4 | November 10, 2013

A Dixon man charged with having an unlawful sexual relationship with an underage girl made a plea agreement Friday that’s expected to result in felony probation.

Troy Anthony Hensley, 38, admitted to three of the 44 counts filed against him following his arrest earlier this year — two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and one count of digital penetration. The remaining 41 counts, including dissuading a witness and criminal threats, were dismissed under the plea deal.

Hensley’s attorney, Steven Sabbadini, said the counts Hensley admitted to do not require mandatory sex-offender registration. The court does have the discretion to order registration, but only during the anticipated three-year probation period, he said.

Police arrested Hensley in June in Davis, where authorities say some of the unlawful conduct occurred at hotels and other locations during the 3-1/2 month relationship. Hensley, a former youth sports coach at Dixon High School, was accused of starting the relationship with the girl when she was 17 years old while they both worked at a Dixon restaurant.

The initial charges also carried allegations that Hensley threatened the teen if she disclosed the relationship to anyone.

Hensley, who is free on bail, is due back in court Dec. 20 before Yolo Superior Court Judge David Rosenberg, who will set a formal sentencing hearing after receiving a probation report in the case.
