Rep. Rick Martin

  • A South Carolina lawmaker has been charged with giving alcohol to a teenage girl and using his position to try to influence a Social Services investigation. Attorney General Alan Wilson said state Rep. Rick Martin was indicted Friday on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and misconduct in office. Authorities say Martin gave alcohol to a then-15-year-old girl in 2019. About a year later, prosecutors allege he tried to use his position as a state lawmaker to influence an investigation at the Department of Social Services. They did not say if the two cases are related.
