Assistant AG out of job after cemetery stripper incident

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A former South Carolina legislator has been fired from the state prosecutor's office after authorities say he was discovered in a cemetery with a stripper.

Police reports released Wednesday said 66-year-old Roland Corning was stopped Monday after his car was spotted in an area police say is known for sex.

Police say an 18-year-old woman who works at the Platinum Plus strip club was with Corning. Police also found Viagra and sex toys that Corning said were there "just in case."

Corning identified himself as a prosecutor and was not arrested. On Wednesday, Attorney General Henry McMaster's spokesman Mark Plowden said Corning no longer worked there.

Corning was a state legislator in the 1990s. He has worked in the top prosecutor's office since 2000. Plowden said Corning was hired by McMaster's predecessor, Charlie Condon.

There was no answer at a number listed for Corning.
