Former “Sons of Guns” reality TV star Will Hayden was convicted Friday of raping two girls in Louisiana more than two decades apart.
The Louisiana jury took only an hour to deliberate before finding Hayden, 51, guilty of two counts of aggravated rape and one count of forcible rape.
She said she never reported it because he threatened her physically. Hayden, 44, is founder and owner of Red Jacket Firearms, the business behind the hit television series “Sons of Guns.”He was arrested two weeks ago in Louisiana on molestation charges and crimes against nature.
He blamed the charges on a scorned ex-girlfriend — the girl’s mother, who was angry he ended their relationship. Hayden in Livingston, Lousiana, on Wednesday, TMZ reported.
Hayden.“With heavy hearts, we will be continuing to operate and ensure the fulfillment of new customer orders, back orders and to provide support to those affected by these new developments,” the statement read.
Will was always a bit of a control freak on his show. They upgraded it to Child Rape charges after interviewing the girl.Prosecutor Sonya Cardia-Porter called Hayden “a master manipulator” who lied to the jury in a “pretty well rehearsed” performance.“That show is acting, and he acted on that (witness) stand like he acted on that show,” Cardia-Porter argued, referencing Hayden’s time on the Discovery Channel reality series “Sons of Guns.” The Discovery Channel cancelled the show in 2014 amid his legal woes.If he's guilty, then he deserves every bad thing headed his way.I've seen complaints in the gun forums about Red Jacket back orders not getting filled.Apartments in Washington Attorneys in Washington Auto Dealers in Washington Auto Parts in Washington Auto Repair in Washington Beauty Salons in Washington Car Rental in Washington Dentists in Washington Doctors in Washington Flowers in Washington Hotels in Washington Insurance in Washington Loans in Washington Mortgages in Washington Movers in Washington Pizza in Washington Realtors in Washington Restaurants in Washington Storage in Washington Tax Preparation in Washington Travel in Washington Featured More...
