Federal Prosecutors Seek Forfeiture Of Property Of McMinn County Businessman; Detail Terry Hayes' Sexual Trysts With Young Girls

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Federal prosecutors are asking to seize property owned by Terry Lynn Hayes in Rhea County and McMinn County, saying the property was used for sexual trysts with young girls.

The civil action in Chattanooga Federal Court details the trysts at the Hayes properties.

Hayes, 44, last month pleaded guilty on child pornography and drug charges.

Prosecutors want to take title to 200 William Prather Lane at Spring City and 1727 County Road 250 in Niota.

Prosecutors said Hayes hosted parties at the Spring City property in the summer of 2011, providing alcohol and drugs to his guests, including females under age 18. They said Hayes had sex with some of the underage females while they were high on alcohol and drugs in exchange for money.

They said he also persuaded some of the underage females to engage in sexually explicit conduct that was videoed.

The action says girls 19 and 17 first met Hayes in the summer of 2011. He was in a new racing boat and one of the girls asked about the boat. Hayes invited them to his lake house in Spring City "to drink and have a good time." He exchanged phone numbers with the girls.

The girls said about two weeks later they ran into Hayes at the Rocky Top Market in Spring City. He invited them to the lake house that night to drink. It says Hayes provided them with alcohol and he crushed some Xanax pills so they could snort the drug.

Later that summer, Hayes called one of the girls and invited both to come over "to party." He again provided them with alcohol, Xanax and cocaine. He asked the 17-year-old if she wanted to make some money and she agreed to have sex with him. She said he gave her $200.

During a third visit, the girls again were given alcohol, Xanax and cocaine. The 17-year-old said she cannot recall whether she had sex with Hayes that night because she was so high, but she said she woke up with $400 in her wallet.

 On a fourth visit, another 17-year-old girl went along. They were given  alcohol, Xanax and cocaine. The girls said Hayes had a larger bag of cocaine containing at least half an ounce.

Another time that summer the three girls went to the lake house and all went up to the bedroom area. Hayes and the first 17-year-old had sex. She was given $300. Prosecutors said Hayes then had sex with the second 17-year-old, paying her $200.

The second 17-year-old said she continued to go to the lake house and have sex with Hayes, getting paid $200 each time.

Prosecutors said Hayes took photos of the second 17-year-old engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Prosecutors were shown photos of both 17-year-olds engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

The second 17-year-old said she saw photos of other minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

The petition said during one of the parties Hayes filmed the first 17-year-old dancing on a pool table. Another picture was taken of the teens nude on their knees.

Prosecutors said on Aug. 5, 2012, Hayes drove to a neighborhood in Dayton and picked up three girls ages 14, 15 and 16. He drove them to his residence in Niota, where he provided them with powder cocaine. He then photographed them engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

The petition says Hayes texted one of those photos to an acquaintance at Quantico, Va.

Roy Exum: Our Tubman Goat-Roping

Every spring there comes a bright day on the ranch when the straw-boss decrees a goat-roping should take place. What really happens is the veteran cowboys arm the greenhorns with some lariats late in the afternoon and take them to the pen that holds some Billy goats. This is before they get into bigger beasts -- horses and cattle – yet what appears to be easy most certainly is not. ... (click for more)
