COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - An investigation into State Senator RC Soles is still ongoing despite recent claims, according to District Attorney Rex Gore and the SBI.

Last week the SBI and the Tabor City Police Department launched a probe into Soles after 27-year-old Stacey Scott said the senator had molested him 12 years ago when he was 15.

In an exclusive interview with WECT, Scott said he was on drugs when he made those allegations and he had never had sexual relations with the senator.

Now Scott is hoping the previous accusations he made against Soles don't come back to hurt the senator.

"That Mr. Soles' name is clear and the public knows he's not that type of person," said Scott.
