COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Nearly two years after WWAY first reported allegations of sexual abuse against R.C. Soles, there’s no reported progress on a state investigation.
The SBI opened an investigation of Soles in the summer of 2009 after Stacey Scott told us the former senator molested him. Scott later recanted his claims to another TV station. Now he admits to a newspaper his original story was true.
Several other young men have made similar allegations against Soles.
We contacted the SBI and District Attorney Jon David for an update today on the investigation. Neither returned our calls.
