Former S.C. lawmaker Chris Corley seeks probation dismissal
For the first time in nearly a year and a half, former S.C. lawmaker and Georgia attorney Chris Aaron Corley made a public appearance in an Aiken County courtroom Wednesday morning.
Alongside Corley were his attorney, Cezar McKnight, and wife, Heather, who was the victim in a domestic violence incident at their home in December 2016, which ended with Corley being sentenced in 2017 to five years of probation.
Corley was almost unrecognizable Wednesday under a long, thick beard. His current look differed greatly from the typical clean-shaven, youthful appearance he kept up for years, especially during his time in the South Carolina Statehouse.
