WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Former state Sen. R.C. Soles is listed in good condition at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington. Soles underwent heart bypass surgery Friday, according to his Tabor City law firm.
Soles, the longest serving member of the General Assembly in state history, left office in 2011.
For years, the former senator has been in the spotlight after allegations of sexual misconduct and assault involving several young men.
His contentious relationships with the men have led to their arrests, many court proceedings and jail time.
