COMPLETE COVERAGE: Hannah Graham suspect Jesse Matthew to be indicted for Fairfax rape

Former Dinwiddie officer charged with rape, incest, and sodomy

DINWIDDIE, Va. (WTVR) — Darryl Hayes’ Facebook page says he left his job at the Dinwiddie Sheriff’s office in October of 2013.

Tuesday afternoon a grand jury charged the former deputy in five separate indictments stemming from his time as a patrol lieutenant.

Near the former deputy’s home off Boydton Plank Road, a retired colleague — who did not want to appear on camera — told CBS-6 he’s shocked to hear of the charges and disgusted by the details.

“It’s a direct indictment so the prosecutor has taken it to the grand jury and done some investigating,” said CBS-6 legal expert Todd Stone. “They’ve spoken to the victim and the victim is apparently willing to testify.”

The indictments reveal the victim in this case is a female family member, and specify it’s not his spouse.

Hayes left the sheriff’s department in October for a different reason, according to a law enforcement source.  The source said the current indictments were not the reason for his departure but couldn’t elaborate.

Stone says if convicted, Hayes will face tough punishment.  “He’s charged with rape, sodomy and incest.  These are all serious charges and will put you on the registry, and all call for mandatory prison time,” said Stone.

Hayes is being held without bond in a jail where Dinwiddie criminals are locked up.  Stone says the former deputy will most likely be separated from criminals he may have cuffed.

“The defense will play up the fact that he was a deputy and served the public but it’s a two-edged sword because prosecutors will say he violated the public’s trust,” said Stone.

The indictments say that the alleged crimes between Hayes and the victim happened between March and August of 2012.

The sheriff’s office confirms he was a lieutenant with their department at that time.

    A oig in jail and on raoe hahaha I hope to hear an update of this in a few months after he gets mixed with the other scumbags on the yard. Can someone say shank!

    “Sticks & stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me” certainly doesnt hold true these days! I do hope that the accussations spoken by the victim are THOROUGHLY investigated! People can say alot of things that may not “break bones,” but rather their words are more lethal than a broken bone, they ruin every fiber of a person’s being. Is this man really guilty of these accussations? Or is there a person or persons who are maliciously damning hiis life for vindictive reasons? And will we ever know which it is?

      Amen to that many peoples lives are ruined by accusations like these. And it is usually better for theto plea bargain than to chance being locked up for years. I pray for him an his family and friends, he is a good man and I just dont believe it.

    He probably is guilty. People from Dinwiddie are quick to hide their mistakes, and even quicker maintain a positive image in the public’s eye. That county needs to be cleaned up tremendously. So glad I don’t have to live in a town anymore that defends such disgusting behaviors.

    • Chad

      Your comment is extremely ignorant and arrogant. I am extremely glad I don’t have to live in a town that you live in, Such a disgusting way to view a certain area based on very little knowledge. Please stay out of Dinwiddie, we do not want you here.

        As I am extremely proud not to live in an area where people choose to get knocked up before they graduate and contribute to giving Americans a bad name through close-minded actions/ways.

        I moved as soon as I graduated and I don’t plan on going back to a place that has no room for personal growth. No ignorance there, just common sense.

        You can keep defending murderers (who get reduced sentences), child molesters, rapists, etc. from that county, but when you people call yourselves “God’s children,” you’re only making a joke of yourself.

      A comment with nothing but pure ignorance…there are a lot worse counties around here to live in.

    He may be innocent. It’s possible that the wife coached her kids to say this stuff so that she’d get a better deal in a divorce settlement. Most women are gold-diggers.

      • Cheryl

        I will pray for you and your prejudice nasty words. That was so wrong on many levels. You should apologize on here for your nasty words and fall to your knees and ask God for forgiveness,

  • athynz

    Remember it’s innocent until proven guilty. Right now there are simply accusations and – as usual – a lot of questions still unanswered.

      Woah now, this is a public site with public comments. We do not need to know you are related to this guy. It’s better that you not comment like this. And please use some type of punctuation next time. The entire rant looks ridiculous. Whatever you do, do not go on facebook and look at those comments……..

      I agree I have known Darryl for 25 years and that is not who he is, people who know him know that this is a lie. My family will pray for him and your family and even for the girl that she will tell the truth before it ruins his future. People get on here judgeing others but watch the news it is 2 or 3 every day and a majority of these or not true and it is sad but I guess until you or a family member of yours is accused you wont know. All it takes is a girl (any age) to say he touched me and you are gone , everything you have and worked for.

      • KK

        You apparently don’t know him as well as you think. I wonder if that poor girl will be sent somewhere to live in an attempt to have the case dropped. I’ve seen it happen personally. Now fall to your knees and pray to God for YOUR ignorance, woman.

  • unique brown

    Only God can judge the lil girl could be lieing so just watch and see before you go talking shit !!

  • obbop

    If truly guilty (false accusations are a common method to gain revenge against another person) I rest easy knowing that since it is a male perpetrator he will be punished far more severely than the typical minor punishment meted out to females for the same or similar offenses.

    That is one of several areas of inequality the feminist cohort handily ignores… along with only males required by federal law to sign up with the military draft or face severe repercussions.
