Husband’s Double Life After He’s charged With Sexually Assaulting Student
Herron’s wife explains in the series how she uncovered disturbing information about her husband’s life after he was arrested.
For over seven years, Jenifer Faison thought she was living in a fairytale romance with her college sweetheart, Spencer Herron, until one afternoon in June 2018, when police turned up at her Georgia home.
Faison would come to learn that the man she knew and loved was living a double life. Behind that fairytale romance was a web of lies, affairs and criminal sexual assault perpetrated by Herron against one of his high school students.
“Betrayal: The Perfect Husband,” a new docuseries from ABC News Studios, follows how Faison unraveled the disturbing truth behind the man she married and began to pick up the pieces of her life from her. It features emotional interviews with women who say they were involved with Herron and the disturbing account of the student victim who came forward and pressed charges against him.
Faison and Herron first met when they were students at Berry College in northwest Georgia. Faison, a communications major, walked into her first meeting de ella at the school’s television station, where Herron was the station manager. The two started dating and became smitten with each other.
But as Faison approached her senior year, she said she didn’t want to be tied down to a boyfriend. Herron was a year older and had already graduated. Herron was devastated when they broke up. But he appeared to move on, eventually got married and had children of his own. He got a job teaching video production at Kell High School in Marietta, Georgia, and played with a couple of bands in the Air National Guard.
“I went from a happy, carefree, and hopeful teenager to a cynical, angry, and depressed one. I completely shut myself out from people. I withdrew from my family and my friends and by the time I was a senior, I had no communication with anyone that I was involved with at school. I felt like I wasn’t deserving of anything good in my life,” Rachel said.
Herron pleaded guilty to the sexual assault charges in January 2019 and was sentenced to five years in prison and 15 years of probation. He was granted parole in the summer of 2022 and required to register as a sex offender.
“The healing’s not over yet. I’m not out of the woods yet. It’s only been four years. I am still clawing my way back out of this deep dark hole that I fell into,” Faison said, adding that she is ” grateful” to Rachel for bravely coming forward.
