It's amazing who gets bail in the state of North Carolina. And it's equally as amazing how long someone can run from sex charges.
North Carolina man Heath Hayes spent three years on the run after being charged with seven counts of first-degree sexual offense and an additional four counts of indecent liberties.
Officials said they arrested 32-year-old Heath Hayes in New Martinesville Saturday morning after getting a tip from the North Carolina Fugitive Task Force.
