Will Hayden, former cast member of the reality TV show 'Sons of Guns' was found guilty by a jury of rape.
Hayden has been found guilty of two counts of aggravated rape and one count of forcible rape. While this brings closure to his victims in that trial, and the mandatory life sentence will likely have Hayden serving his remaining years alive behind bars, Hayden is also accused and awaiting trial on charges in Livingston Parish, of aggravated rape of a 15 year old girl, and a sex crime charge involving his oldest daughter Stephanie Hayden.
'Sons of Guns' was a reality TV show that focused on Hayden's custom gunsmith shop and aired on Discovery Channel. The show was cancelled shortly after Hayden's arrest for sexual assault. The show was widely criticized by firearms owners and has become a running joke online with Hayden's tendency to make already discovered techniques and technology look like they were the brainchild of his shop, and using terms that are now mockingly repeated such as 'neva been done befoe'.
