'Sons of Guns' star set for motion hearing related to rape charges in Livingston Parish

LIVINGSTON, LA (WAFB) - A former star on the reality television show "Sons of Guns" is scheduled to be in court again Thursday related to rape charges he is facing.

Attorneys for Will Hayden, 49, of Baton Rouge, filed a motion in his Livingston Parish case. The defense wants additional information to be included into the official record. Hayden changed attorneys in February.

Hayden was indicted in Livingston Parish on charges of aggravated rape and indecent behavior with a juvenile. He has pleaded not guilty. A conviction on aggravated rape carries a mandatory life sentence in Louisiana.

Detectives there said the rape charge is from March 2013 involving a girl who was 11 years old at the time. They added another girl came forward and told them she was a victim of Hayden's in 1995 when she was 12 or 13 years old.

The former reality star also previously entered a plea of not guilty to two counts of aggravated rape in a Baton Rouge courtroom.

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 Aug. 4, 2014.

Detectives then re-booked Hayden on Aug. 26, 2014 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.

The Discovery Channel announced the "Sons of Guns" series was canceled after Hayden was first arrested and charged with aggravated rape of a 12-year-old.
