Convicted Sex Offender Faces More Charges 

A Prentiss Plantation man is facing more charges of sexually abusing children.

49-year-old Timothy Hayes was indicted Friday on 14 more counts. Charges include gross sexual assault on a person younger than 12, violation of conditions of release, violation of the Sex Offender Registry Act, as well as multiple charges of prohibited contact with a minor. Authorities say some of those occurred in a safe zone.

Earlier this month, Hayes was indicted for sexually abusing an 8-year-old boy.

Authorities say these latest charges are all related.

They involved nine children.

The charges are the culmination of a four-month long investigation by police.
