Rape Charges Filed against Sons of Guns Reality Show Star as Woman, 34, Accuses Him of Sexually Abusing Her When She Was 12

New rape charges were filed today against Will Hayden, former star of the reality TV show, Sons of Guns.
The sheriff’s office in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, said they have charged Hayden with forcible rape after a woman reported Hayden raped her 22 years ago.

Hayden is already accused of sexually abusing his 12-year-old daughter and yesterday it was revealed that another of his daughters is now claiming that she too was sexually abused as a child by her father and is set to provide information to law enforcement to aid in his prosecution.

Deputies said the new accuser was 12 at the time of alleged attack, which happened while she was staying with Hayden and his family after her family was displaced by a house fire.

Hayden, 49, was initially booked August 8 with child molestation of his daughter.
He posted $150,000 bond but was re-arrested August 26 for aggravated rape against the same victim.
He was being held with bond set at $250,000 bond when the new forcible rape charges were filed.
Bail on the new charge hasn’t been set. It was not immediately clear whether Hayden has an attorney.

According to an affidavit seeking an arrest warrant, the latest alleged victim, now 34, tells authorities when she was 12 Hayden asked her if she ‘wanted to get high’ and she said yes.

After smoking marijuana, her account in the affidavit continues, Hayden placed his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming and lay on top of her before proceeding to rape her.

Afterward, Hayden told her not to tell anyone what happened, she told investigators.
She said she was reluctant to come forward because she did not know if her family would believe her.
‘However, approximately four years ago she told her husband that she was raped by the defendant when she was 12-years-old.

Detectives were able to confirm this after an interview with him,’ the affidavit states.
The Discovery Channel canceled ‘Sons of Guns’ after Hayden’s August 26 arrest.

Sons of Guns began airing in 2011 and followed Hayden’s family-owned custom firearms business. Episodes often showed Hayden and his adult daughter, Stephanie, helping customers find weapons, including rifles.
Other scenes showed the process of making the guns, images from firing ranges, and ammunition tips.

Yesterday it was revealed by TMZ Stephanie is now claiming that she too was sexually abused as a child by her father.
She is reportedly set to provide information to law enforcement in the coming days to aid in her father’s prosecution.

Her decision sparks a dramatic turnaround as she had originally pledged to stand by her father despite his arrest for the alleged sexual abuse of her 12-year-old sister.

‘There was never any impropriety in our home,’ she said at the time. ‘He was and is a good father.’
Stephanie is now recanting her original statement and is set to meet with investigators in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to provide specific details of the sexual abuse she allegedly suffered, reports TMZ.

‘After 45 shows and 20 years, this is the first I’ve heard of it,’ an attorney for her father told TMZ.
‘Her complaints arose only after her income from the show and [gun] shop stopped.
‘She’s still Will’s daughter, and he loves her.’
