911 Receives A Call But Can Only Hear Children Crying And Yelling In The Background. When The Cops Arrive, They Realize Things Are Much Worse Than They Thought
A South Carolina lawmaker previously known for shaming his fellow Republicans is now facing 25 years in prison after gravely hitting his wife. Read on for the full story!
36-year-old Republican lawmaker Chris Corley from South Carolina was formally charged for domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature after pointing a firearm at his wife. In order to keep her privacy, his wife will remain unnamed.
After having these charges pressed against him, he is facing a jail sentence of up to 25 years, CBS News reports.
The abuse claims were supported by the 911 call received from the Corleys’ home. In the recorded 911 call, their young children can be heard in the background screaming, “Just stop, daddy. Just stop… Daddy, why are you doing this?”
Corley’s wife can also be heard in the recording pleading with him and saying, “Chris, please stop.”
The operator who was on the other end of this 911 call immediately reported the disturbing interaction to Aiken County.
In an interview, the operator recounted what they heard when they were on the phone line during the 911 call and said, “I had a caller, sounded a lot like children screaming for help and begging for their father to stop.”
According to reports, neither Corley nor his attorney, who refused to provide his name, returned any messages or inquiries for comments. A judge later prohibited Corley from communicating with his wife.
Corley claimed that his wife, who accused him of cheating on her, tried to punch him.
House Speaker Jay Lucas suspended Corley as soon as his indictment was formally handled.
According to reports, even Corley’s mother-in-law called 911 and reported the terrifying incident. She told the dispatcher who received her call, “He beat his wife and he’s threatening to kill himself.”
Corley’s most prominent legacy would be his resilient defense of the Confederate flag that happened back in June, 2015.
The debate was prompted by the mass murder of nine black parishioners inside a church in Charleston, North Carolina.
Corley then suggested to replace the flag with a white flag of surrender. When the vote to take down the flag won, Corley sent Christmas cards to his fellow Republicans with the Confederate flag printed on the front flap.
The card said, “May your Christmas be filled with memories of a happier time when South Carolina’s leaders possessed morals, convictions and the principles to stand for what is right.”
He then insinuated that they should repent for their sins of betrayal to him.
