ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP/WVOC) - An Orangeburg man is in jail charged with 45 counts of vandalizing 17 Orangeburg area churches over five years.
The Times and Democrat newspaper reports that 56-year-old Bill Hiscox was arrested after a video camera recorded a man throwing rocks at a downtown church.
Authorities say in one instance, a stained glass window at a church was shattered. And he's accused of spreading feces on the doors of some churches.
Hiscox told a judge at a bond hearing he got depressed and became "mad at God."
He said he is "remorseful" and received death threats during his first night in jail.
Hiscox could be sentenced up to 10 years on each count if he is convicted.
