Newport Police Union Head Christopher Hayes Gets Six Months in Prison For Fraud


U.S. District Court Chief Judge William Smith on Friday morning sentenced Christopher Hayes to six months incarceration, followed by six months of home confinement.

For the following three years, Hayes will be on supervised release and must perform 100 hours of community service each of those years. Hayes, a retired Newport Police detective and former president of its union, pleaded guilty to a federal fraud charge in May, acknowledging he funneled roughly $71,500 in union funds for his personal expenses during his term as president of the Newport police union.

He must repay that amount in its entirety to the union, according to the sentence. Hayes must report for his sentence, at a facility yet to be determined, on Monday, Aug. 21, by noon.
