Authorities raided Henson's house and barn in January, 1993. It turned out to be the largest moonshine operation in Virginia. They found 36- pots, 900 pounds of meal, 100 pounds of sugar, two dozen one- pound bags of yeast.

About a month later Henson was arrested. Authorities charged him with aiding and abetting in the production of illegal alcohol. The evidence against Henson was circumstantial. The prosecution was able to establish that Henson lived in the house at some point and that electric lines from the house powered the still. But Henson's attorney argued there was no obvious link between Henson and the still.

A Grand Jury agreed and refused to indict Henson on the charges.
He was off the hook. By May, Henson was in trouble again. Authorities busted him for arranging to buy 22 pounds of pot.
The D-E-A said Henson was part of a marijuana- trafficking network that brought more than 12-hundred pounds of pot into Virginia.
Henson had 12 counts against him, involving drugs, firearms, and making moonshine.
In the federal case, the government still had no witnesses who could say they saw Henson cooking whiskey mash.

The prosecution based its case on the fact the still was on Henson's property, that he'd paid for construction materials, and that his fingerprints were on the equipment.
The federal jury convicted Henson of running the moonshine operation. Some months later he was found guilty of conspiracy to distribute hundreds of pounds of marijuana.
Henson was sentenced to 8 years in prison and fined 25-hundred dollars. That's Virginia Newsreel, I'm Keith Humphry.))
