Molestation suspect also facing child porn charges

Already facing child molestation charges, a Henry County man was indicted for allegedly having child porn images on his home computer.

A 10-count indictment Aug. 10 charged Richard Fisher Hayes, 47, with possessing pornographic images of children, authorities said.

Hayes was downloading the images when Henry police and the GBI entered his McDonough home and arrested him in September, police spokesman Joey Smith said at the time.

Police said Hayes used two false online profiles to lure children to give him sexual images and engage in sexual activity.
