It’s hard to call the sentence handed to North Carolina Sen. R.C. Soles Jr. “justice.”
Last week, Soles, who has admitted to shooting Thomas Kyle Blackburn at Soles’ Tabor City home last August, entered a guilty plea to a charge on one count of misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.
After failing to call the police at any time during which he felt threatened at his home, and then shooting a fleeing man in the back of the leg, Soles will get no jail time.
He won’t be on probation.
