Hutch was the maintenance man at West Beverly Hills High School. He was first seen helping Steve Sanders into his locker after he forgot his combination. However, he would soon show a more devious side after he caught Steve breaking into the school in search of the Legacy Key.
Steve paid him a hundred dollars to keep quiet about the break-in and Hutch offered to sell him a Legacy Key. After Steve broke into the school, Hutch was questioned by the police. He threatened to tell them about Steve's previous break-in, but Steve aid him another hundred dollars to keep his name out of it. However, after thought, Hutch decided to increase his payment.
He later got grilled by the police and then told Steve he was going to turn him in because he had to give up something. When Steve lamented that he had paid for his silence, Hutch responded by telling him that money didn't buy everything. Steve later confessed.
