Disgraced ex-SC lawmaker asks judge to dismiss probation in domestic violence case

COLUMBIA, SC -- Disgraced former S.C. lawmaker Chris Corley (R) avoided a lengthy prison sentence after he pleaded guilty in 2017 to first-degree criminal domestic violence against his wife — and now he’s asking an Aiken County judge to dismiss him from probation.

On Wednesday, Corley made his first court appearance in nearly two years, asking Circuit Court Judge Clifton Newman to end his probation, saying he had completed the sentencing requirements of more than 100 hours of community service and anger management.

“This caused me to almost lose my family, and I did lose my standing in society,” Corley, R-Aiken, said in court Wednesday, according to the Aiken Standard, which first reported the hearing. “I’m just so sorry for everything that happened.”

The S.C. Attorney General’s Office, who is prosecuting the case, told The State Newspaper on Thursday it opposes the early dismissal.

While I admit that I'm willing to give anyone a second chance (and moire), Corley has served less than two years of probation of the five years that he was sentenced. Considering that Corley received probation rather than jail, I believe that it would be best to revisit the request in another year.
