TMZ is reporting that Stephanie Hayden, the daughter of accused child rapist Will Hayden, is now claiming that her father sexually abused her when she was younger.

Hayden, the owner of Red Jacket Firearms and the star of Discovery Channel’s popular television program “Sons of Guns,” was arrested twice last month and charged with child rape and aggravated crimes against nature for allegedly abusing his 12-year-old daughter, Stephanie’s younger sister.

Stephanie initially defended her father after his first arrest but has since changed her story. She is currently cooperating with investigators and aiding in the prosecution of her dad.

Stephanie is scheduled to meet with Baton Rouge law enforcement next week to discuss the details of her abuse.

Investigators have said that Stephanie’s sister claims that she was raped “almost daily,’ since March of 2013, and that she didn’t say anything because Hayden told her, “don’t tell them nothing because I’m all you got.”

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

Following news of his arrest, Discovery Channel has cancelled “Sons of Guns” and Red Jacket Firearms has initiated and received full legal separation from Hayden.

    Never liked him or his show. Didn’t really see anyone on the show I would trust to housesit my dog. But none of that makes him guilty. Until a jury says he is guilty, the he is just accused.
    I always find things strange when they happen after someone makes a lot of money, or gets famous in some way. If anything I tend to give them more benefit of the doubt than the avg person.
    However, IF they find him guilty I think they should put him in jail forever. But then I feel this way about anyone that sexually abuses children, no matter who they are. But until they convict him..he is only accused. Remember poor old O.J. ? He was accused..we all thought he was guilty as he**! But nope! Jury found him innocent. That means by law he didn’t do it. And we all know that all laws are good, fair, and needed. Just look at one of the latest from the great state of NY where I happen to live in. You can own a handgun with a 10 round mag, or more even. But you can not have more than eight rounds in it!! The saddest part is, it is truly a great state. It is the people in it that vote these morons into office that makes it a good state to be FROM!!

    Sad, sad, sad… Pray that it’s all about money and not really true, but whatever the outcome, the man has already been convicted in the public’s eyes.

    To empower anyone reading this report, may I suggest going to and entering your zip code. I am being forced to move back to California and thought I’d check out my new home address: there are more registered sex offenders within 8 blocks of the high school where my granddaughters are going than in my entire (current Oklahoma) county!

    And they think I won’t be bringing my guns??? Are they Nuts?
