Matthew Hayes

Matthew Hayes, 40, of Muskogee pleaded no contest to a felony charge of causing sex abuse of a child for fondling an 11-year old girl in 2018, according to documents filed in the case.

Though he had initially allegedly considered an insanity defense, according to a discovery request filed on Jan 15 of this year, today, Hayes pleaded no contest in exchange for a 10-year sentence, with all but the first two years suspended. He must register as a sex offender and submit to Department of Corrections probation.

Hayes was formerly a guard at Jess Dunn Correctional Facility.
