Shame: Richard 'Rick' Fisher Hayes

Rick Hayes, producer of the InfoSec Daily Podcast (@isdpodcast), contributer to Business Insider, and former "Force Practice Lead" with TrustedSec, was arrested on September 12, 2016 and terminated by his employer on September 13, 2016. He was indicted by a Henry County grand jury on December 15, 2016, charged with aggravated child molestation and two counts of child molestation (suspected of molesting a 15-year-old family friend on two separate occasions in August, 2016), and plead not guilty in Henry County Superior Court on February 21, 2017. In August, 2017, Hayes was charged with a second set of crimes after a grand jury returned a 10-count indictment that included charges of possessing pornographic images of children, including infants. On October 23, a third set of charges were filed against Hayes (two additional counts of child molestation and a count of aggravated sexual battery) related to a second teenage victim allegedly subjected to sexual assault. This brings the total number of criminal charges to 16 across three separate cases pending in Georgia. Since his arrest, Hayes has been held in the Henry County Jail without bond. In April of 2018, Hayes plead guilty to the charges.
