'Sons of Guns' reality star pleads not guilty to rape charges in Livingston Parish

LIVINGSTON, LA (WAFB) - Former "Sons of Guns" reality television star Will Hayden pleaded not guilty to aggravated rape and aggravated incest charges in a Livingston Parish courtroom Thursday.

He is scheduled to be back in court in Livingston Parish for a hearing on February 9. He also faces rape charges in East Baton Rouge Parish.

The 49-year-old entered a plea of not guilty to two counts of aggravated rape in East Baton Rouge Parish on January 8. A total of four victims have made claims against the founder of Red Jacket Firearms.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office reported Hayden was initially arrested on Aug. 8, 2014 on charges of molestation of a juvenile and aggravated crimes against nature for alleged sexual activity with a 12-year-old girl in connection with an incident that allegedly happened on August 4.

Detectives then re-booked Hayden on August 26 on a charge of aggravated rape related to that same girl.

About a month after the initial arrest, detectives said more charges were filed against Hayden after a woman reported he had allegedly raped her 22 years ago when she was 12 years old.
