Aiken state representative jailed on domestic violence charge


Chris Corley, a Republican who represents Graniteville in the state's House of Representatives, was charged with first degree domestic violence and pointing and presenting firearms to a person after being arrested by the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.

State representative Christopher Corley, R-Aiken, was arrested on charges of domestic violence and pointing a weapon Tuesday.

Because of the violent nature of his crimes, Corley may be removed from his position as lawmaker for the county of Aiken.

According to an incident report, Corley and a woman got into an argument and Corley hit the woman causing her to bleed.

Corley threatened to kill himself and then went into the bedroom, the report stated. He claims that he tried to push her off and she ended up scratching him on the forehead.

China eyes 2018 for moon landing, 2020 for Mars mission
China is setting its eyes on the moon and Mars, announcing an ambitious program that it hopes will make it a leading space power. It also said China plans to launch its first Mars probe by 2020 to carry out orbiting and roving exploration.

Meantime, South Carolina House Speaker Jay Lucas says he has heard about the arrest and will take action if Corley is indicted.

Abdullah said the victim is "fine", and with family members.

Corley was first elected to the SC house in 2014, according to prior reports. "Because the matter is still under investigation, further inquiries should be directed to the Second Circuit Solicitor's Office", said spokeswoman Caroline Delleney. A message left at his home wasn't immediately returned.

S.C. GOP Chairman Matt Moore said, "I trust the legal system to deal with these disturbing charges against Rep. Corley in a timely manner". Corley also proposed a statewide referendum on whether the Confederate flag should fly in front of the Statehouse. Reach her at 803-644-2395.
