D.C. Sex Offender Indicted in Virginia

WASHINGTON – Kevin Hayes, a sex offender registered in Washington, D.C. was indicted Thursday in the Eastern District of Virginia on violations under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, announced U.S. Marshal Michael Hughes, U.S. Marshal for Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

In 1990, Hayes was convicted of rape in Alexandria, Va. and sentenced to 7 years incarceration. In 2008, Hayes registered with the sex offender registry in Washington, D.C. as a Class “A” offender, required by law to register every ninety days for life.

In August 2012, members of the United States Marshals Service, DC Superior Court Sex Offender Investigations Section began an investigation into Hayes and his registration. Information gathered indicated that Hayes had been registering at a homeless shelter since February 2012. Evidence gathered in the investigation also indicated that Hayes had not been staying at the shelter since January 2012, but had living in Alexandria, Va. since at least March 2012. Employment information gathered throughout the investigation indicated that Hayes was employed by three companies throughout Fairfax County, Va.

Hayes failed to provide any of this information, regarding residency or employment, to the Commonwealth of Virginia, only remaining a registrant in Washington, D.C.

On Sept. 28, 2012 the U.S. Marshals Service, D.C. Superior Court Sex Offender Investigations Section arrested Hayes as well as executed multiple search warrants for proof of residency. In the execution of the search warrants, marijuana and other suspected narcotics were seized.
