LAURENS CO., SC (WSPA) – The solicitor’s office has dropped charges against a former candidate for Laurens County coroner.

James Hayes had been charged with disseminating harmful materials to a minor.

According to the Index Journal, the Eighth Circuit Solicitor’s Office chose not to prosecute Hayes after further review and considering input from the victim and her family.

Investigators say he showed a picture of male genitalia to a 16-year-old girl in a parking lot last August.
