WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It’s been 687 days since the SBI began investigating former State Sen. R.C. Soles for sexual misconduct. The investigation began in August 2009 when Stacey Scott alleged that Soles had molested him. This past weekend, a local newspaper published an in-depth report that claims Soles has molested at least five men.
After not returning phone messages this week seeking an update about the investigation, a spokeswoman for the SBI and NC Department of Justice returned an e-mail asking for an update saying, “We’re not able to comment on this at this time.”
District Attorney Jon David says his office can’t move forward until the SBI concludes its investigation.
