Hector is employed by Mississippi Central Railroad Company. He is married to Camilla Lewis and they have two sons, Ronny (12) and Donny (9).
Hector was accused of rape in 1999 but was found "not guilty" in 2001. In 2002, the real rapist was tried and convicted. The main evidence in the case was DNA. The young woman (Jenny Murphy) who identified Hector in a lineup has apologized both publicly and face to face with Hector and his family.
Hector claims that he holds no hard feelings and states that the rapist looks like he could be his twin brother so he understands the ordeal that Jenny and her family endured.
