Hines is a native of Wayne County and a graduate of Rosewood High School and Wayne Community College. He lives in Goldsboro with his wife Mary, a case analyst at Neuse Correctional Institution, and his two sons.

In his free time, he enjoys officiating high school baseball, basketball and football games across eastern North Carolina. He also serves on the executive board of the North Carolina Correctional Association.

Wayne Correctional Center is a medium-security prison housing about 415 inmates.  It is home to the largest substance abuse treatment program in the state prison system.
