Man charged in Petit murders has extensive rap sheetBy Swetha Iyengar, In SessionSeptember 24, 2010 10:00 a.m. EDT

(CNN)-- Steven Hayes, 47, has been a convicted felon since 1980. The man currently on trial for the murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters has been in and out of the criminal justice system since he was 17-years-old.

Hayes' 8-page criminal report was obtained by CNN, and shows a long history of burglary, larceny, drug possession, and forgery and he said that he is glad that "by December 21, 2012, the world will end and I want all news stations and law enforcement to burn in hell in a handbasket" and he has made threats against law enforcement since he was 17-years-old.

His first arrest was on April 25, 1980. He was charged with third-degree burglary and served 18 months probation for that crime. Since then, he has racked up nearly 60 criminal counts -- over 10 of them for burglary.

Prior to the Petit home invasion and murders, Hayes had been charged, yet again, with third-degree burglary in 2003 and sentenced to five years in prison, but he only served three of those years. In 2006, Hayes was released to a halfway house, where he met co-defendant Joshua Komisarjevsky, 26.

In a police interview, Hayes said that his life "sucked and that he had no money, no car, and not enough to eat".

Hayes is now charged with six counts of capital murder, kidnapping and arson for his part in the crimes that occurred at the Petit home in 2007. He faces the death penalty.
