BREAKING NEWS: Soles turns himself in

Friday, January 8th, 2010



R.C. Soles has spent 42 years in the state senate. His visit to jail lasted barely as many minutes.

The longest serving member of the state legislature turned himself in just after 11 a.m. Friday. Thursday a grand jury indicted him for assault with a deadly weapon. The charge stems from the August shooting of Kyle Blackburn, a law client of the senator, at Soles’s home outside Tabor City.

The senator only said, “Good morning,” to reporters on his way into the jail. He said nothing as he walked back to his car around noon after posting a $5,000 bond.
