“My mission was to protect Cheyenne and keep her safe and that’s what I did.” – Dalton Hayes

In an exclusive jailhouse interview, Dr. Phil speaks with Dalton Hayes, the Kentucky teenager who last month allegedly went on a two-week crime spree in the Southeastern U.S. with his 13-year-old girlfriend Cheyenne Phillips until ultimately being caught by police in Florida. The episode airs Wednesday, February 25th (check local listings).

Here are the facts:

  • ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ teen Hayes was indicted on 11 felony counts – including rape – after multi-state crime spree with 13-year-old girlfriend
    Dalton Hayes has been indicted by a grand jury in Kentucky on 11 charges including rape in the second degree and violation of custodial interference
  • Hayes is the older half of the teenage duo dubbed Bonnie & Clyde after a multi-state crime spree of stolen vehicles and pilfered checks
  • Hayes was caught on January 18 with his 13-year-old girlfriend in Florida following their alleged multi-state crime spree

Hayes and Phillips made national headlines when they allegedly forged checks and stole cars, while evading police across five southern states. Dubbed by some, “The modern day Bonnie & Clyde,” referring to the notorious young outlaws from the ‘30’s, the nation watched as a manhunt ensued to capture them until they were ultimately apprehended by authorities while they slept in an allegedly stolen truck.

Hayes has since been indicted by a grand jury on a multitude of charges including second-degree rape. He has pled not guilty and remains behind bars at the Grayson County Detention Center in Leitchfield, Kentucky.
