Will Hayden is facing yet another charge of rape as an accuser has come forward and claimed that the Sons of Guns star forcibly raped her 22 years ago when she was just 12 years old.
According to TMZ, the accuser claims that she had been living with Hayden and his family at the time of the incident, because she had been displaced after her family’s home had been destroyed by a fire.
The site reports that the incident happened one night when the alleged victim was asked by Hayden if she wanted to get high. The pair then smoked marijuana together, but in her account the victim claims that Hayden then allegedly placed his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming, laid his entire body on top of her, and raped her.
The woman told investigators that Hayden told her not to tell anyone and until now, she has been reluctant to say anything in case her family did not believe her.
The sheriff’s office in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, said they have charged Hayden with forcible rape of the woman, the Daily Mail reports.
The Discovery Channel star 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, the publication reports.
Hayden was initially booked on Aug. 8 with child molestation of his daughter. He posted $150,000 bond but was re-arrested just weeks later on Aug. 26 for aggravated rape against the same victim.
It has been reported that Hayden is still in custody and was being held on $250,000 bond. However, bail on the new charge of forcible rape has not yet been set.
