A second daughter of “Sons of Guns” star William Hayden has reportedly come to her younger sister’s defense in claiming he sexually abused her too as a child.

The Discovery Channel series was canceled last month after Mr. Hayden was arrested Aug. 27 on accusations from his 12-year-old daughter that she had been repeatedly vaginally and orally raped by her father for the last two years.

Stephanie Hayden Ford, Mr. Hayden’s 29-year-old daughter who starred alongside him in the series, is now going to police to aid in her father’s prosecution despite coming to his defense last month when he was first arrested Aug. 9 on child molestation charges, TMZ reported.

Mrs. Ford, a mother of two, is reportedly recanting her original statement and plans on meeting with investigators in Baton Rouge as early as next week to provide specific details of the sexual abuse she allegedly suffered, TMZ reported.

Her husband Kris Ford recently took to Facebook to write a poem about the situation, which has since been taken down, TMZ said.

“You fooled with my wife when she was young. Sucking and groping, do you remember what was done?” he reportedly wrote.

An attorney for Mr. Hayden argues that Mrs. Ford’s accusations are only coming to light now that her income from the TV show has stopped.

“After 45 shows and 20 years, this is the first I’ve heard of it,” the attorney told TMZ. “Her complaints arose only after her income from the show and (gun) shop stopped. She’s still Will’s daughter, and he loves her.”
