Last week we said we were waiting to see what would happen next for North Carolina Sen. R.C. Soles Jr.
We were quick to find out.
Soles, North Carolina’s longest serving legislator, was indicted Thursday, Jan. 7, for the Aug. 23, 2009, shooting of Thomas Kyle Blackburn at Soles’ Branchwater estate in Tabor City.
He was indicted on one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. Soles has maintained the shooting was in self defense.
