Sure he was an innocent man before he came to Shawshank but his time spend corrupted him to the point that he became as crooked as the rest of the cons. That's the real tragedy behind his whole arc. Once an upstanding man now a corrupt criminal on the run from the law. Make more sense than anything else above.
* This is legally confirmed. He did escape the prison, which is a felony.

Hadley's arrest would also result in him being fired and losing his badge, meaning any guards who witnessed him beat the guy to death on Andy's first night at Shawshank would no longer have a reason to keep silent. There was no reason for Hadley to bash Fat Ass's head in, and that would be considered murder of some sort.
