Theft Suspect Lied About Being Former Law Enforcement

BROOKSVILLE – There is yet another strange twist to the double arrest of William Michael Hennessey, the suspect charged burglary of a residence and for stealing his own pickup truck on Tuesday.

When RNRF inquired about Hennessey’s booking information not being available on the Hernando County Jail’s website, we were told by officials that he was exempt due to being prior law enforcement.

After running our second story on Hennessey this afternoon (CLICK HERE TO VIEW), we received notification from the Sheriff’s Office that Hennessey lied about his prior employment with law enforcement.

Since this emergence of this new information, officials have posted both of Hennessey’s arrests on the HCJ Website.

It is not known at this time if Hennessey will face additional charges for providing false information to “actual” law enforcement.

UPDATE: 8/21/2015, 9:10 AM – William Hennessey contacted RNRF by phone on Thursday and asked that we provide an explanation as to why his arrests should be exempt from public record.  

Hennessey says due to his ex-stepfather’s past affiliation with Governor Rick Scott, he and other members of his family were granted the same exemption from public records as active or former law enforcement officers. 

Hennessey says he is in the process of acquiring that documentation to clear his name.

  • No he will not get his gun back. If he had a carry permit he just lost that privilege. If he is convicted which he most likely be as a felon, he will never be able to legally, buy or possess a firearm or any weapon for that matter. The only thing he will legally be able to carry is pepper spray.
