BREAKING NEWS: Grand jury indicts Soles
A Columbus County grand jury indicted Sen. R.C. Soles for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. Last month, a grand jury found probable cause to believe Soles had acted unlawfully when he shot 22-year-old Kyle Blackburn, a client of his law firm.
Soles said Blackburn was trying to break into his house Aug. 23, but Blackburn told WWAY he was leaving Soles’s property when the senator shot him.
Now that Soles has been indicted, he will be arrested and processed through the system.
