Second trial for former Houston County man facing sexual abuse charges set for December

Henry Luther Welzel

After a mistrial in 2018, a former Houston County man will go on trial on Dec. 2 for multiple charges of sexual abuse.

Henry Luther Welzel Jr’s March 2018 trial was declared a mistrial after a jury foreman notified the judge the jury was divided with no hope of a resolution.

Welzel was arrested March 20, 2016, and charged with three counts of sexual conduct with a child less than 12 years old and two counts of first-degree sodomy, stemming from incidents believed to have occurred in 2016. He was indicted by a grand jury on Feb. 26, 2016.
