A woman has given an unflinching account of how her fairytale marriage was shattered after she discovered her ‘Teacher of the Year’ husband was a compulsive cheater and sexual predator who targeted his teenage students. 

Hulu’s new true crime docuseries Betrayal: The Perfect Husband explores Jenifer Faison’s marriage to convicted sex offender Spencer Herron, from their college romance to his shocking arrest that shed light on his double life. 

Based on Faison and producer Andrea Gunning’s podcast of the same name, the three-part ABC News Studios production features interviews with multiple women who claim to have been taken advantage of by the former teacher.

Faison described them as having an ‘ideal marriage’ up until Herron was arrested for sexually assaulting a student in 2018, saying, ‘I never would have imagined the scope of what he had done.’

The former couple met when she transferred to Berry College, a private liberal arts institution in Mount Berry, Georgia, for her junior year to study communications. 

Herron, who was a senior, was a manager of the school’s television station. 

Their college friend Josh Villines described him as having a ‘boy-next-door, Eagle Scout’ quality to him, saying he was the type of guy who would help you move a couch into your third-story dorm room. 

‘He was just one of those people who had an outgoing and charismatic personality,’ he explained. 

Faison and Herron began dating almost immediately and fell madly in love. She said it was the ‘perfect college relationship,’ noting that there weren’t any red flags. 

He wrote her sweet love notes and made her mixed tapes. Even her family was smitten with Herron when she brought him home to meet them. 

Despite their love for each other, Faison broke up with Herron after he graduated because she couldn’t see their relationship working while she was still in school. 

After receiving her diploma, she moved home and worked at a radio station for three years before relocating to Los Angeles to become a television producer.

Faison’s first job in television was with Judge Judy, which earned her two Emmy nominations. She went on to work as a producer for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Breakthrough with Tony Robbins, and Jersey Shore.

While she was making a name for herself in Hollywood, Herron got married and had children. He remained in Georgia, where he worked as a freelance videographer, taught video production at a high school, and played in an Air National Guard band. 

Faison dated other people, but she never met anyone who compared to her college sweetheart. After 20 years apart, a divorced Herron reached out to her on Facebook.

As fate would have it, they were traveling to New York City at the same time and made plans to meet up while they were there. 

‘The night I re-met Spence in New York was magical,’ she recalled, saying their reconnection felt like it was ‘meant to be.’ 

‘We really believed we were soulmates,’ she said. 

Faison made the decision to move across the country to be with Herron, who asked her to marry him after getting her parents’ blessing. 

They tied the knot in front of their family and close friends on December 30, 2012, and they went on to purchase a wine bar in downtown Acworth, Georgia. 

Herron taught video production at Kell High School, where he was named ‘Teacher of the Year’ twice, and he continued to have occasional deployments with the Air National Guard band.

Up until his arrest on June 1, 2018, Faison thought they had a ‘great marriage.’ She recalled how she excitedly drove home to see him after finishing up work in Nashville that day. 

‘I pulled into the driveway of our house expecting him to come outside to greet me, and nothing this time,’ she said. ‘Little did I know I was married to a man who had done something so horrible that it would devastate our lives and change us forever.’

When she walked inside, Herron was sitting on the couch, shaking his head, saying, ‘It’s over, it’s all over.’ 

Faison recalled seeing a search warrant on the table, saying she only remembers the words ‘sexual assault’ and ‘student.’ 

When the police came and arrested Herron, he was charged with five counts of sexual assault and held on $55,220 bail.

Faison initially believed there had to be some sort of misunderstanding, but two days later, she stumbled into his email and clicked on a folder that was labeled ‘photos.’

After finding dozens of images of naked women, she was confronted with the hard truth that the man she had married was a compulsive cheater.

‘I just kept looking and it was woman after woman after woman,’ she said. ‘And then I found emails and messages between him and these women. He was living a double life. Who was this predator that I was married to?’

Faison was blindsided and desperate for answers. She made timelines and charts tracking his infidelity, finding messages from ‘over 60 women.’

She described her ex-husband as essentially using their wine bar as a ‘brothel’ when she wasn’t there, sleeping with everyone from prostitutes to mutual friends. 

Herron also had two- to three-year-long affairs with about half a dozen women, some at the same time. 

‘He even cheated on me the week of our wedding,’ she said. 

Not only was Herron living a secret life, but he escalated his behaviors and became a sexual predator. 

Throughout 2016 and 2017, he sexually assaulted a student named Rachel, who later reported him to authorities. He started grooming her when she was 15 and had sex with her when she was 16.

‘I was just a kid. I remember feeling really sick to my stomach about it,’ she said on the Betrayal podcast.  

Prosecutors said he arranged to be alone with his victim ‘under the pretense of meeting for a non-existent school club.’

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 2022 and had to register as a sex offender

Arrest warrants stated that he also allegedly had sex multiple times with two other students between 2016 and 2018. 

The age of consent in Georgia is 16, but it is illegal for a teacher in the state to have any sexual relationship with a student, regardless of their age. He was charged with sexual assault rather than statutory rape. 

Rachel struggled with both the aftermath of the sexual assaults and the victim shaming she faced from members of the community who believed Herron was innocent. 

‘I went from a happy, carefree, and hopeful teenager to a cynical, angry, and depressed one,’ she said during a speaking engagement featured in the series. 

‘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.’ 

Herron pleaded guilty to the sexual assault charges in January 2019 and was sentenced to five years in prison and 15 years of probation. In 2022, he was granted parole and had to register as a sex offender.
