Aiken CTY-- It's been an ongoing case for more than 2 years between Carlton Cantrell and Aiken County.

You'll recall Cantrell is the man who was shot on Thursday evening along with his dog outside Aiken.

But this saga goes all the way back to May 2005. According to court documents News 12 received today, that's when Cantrell was charged by the Aiken County Animal Control Officers with ill treatment of animals.

He kept most of the more than 150 animals at his home.

A plea agreement was reached in that case in August of 2005, which included Cantrell paying $1,800 in restitution in order to get his animals back.

Earlier this year, he counter-sued the plea agreement and New Ellenton Magistrate Judge Patrick Sullivan agreed with him.

Within 30 days of that, Aiken County Administrator Clay Killian says the county filed a motion to reconsider the original plea agreement.

That's where we stand right now. The county is waiting for Judge Sullivan to mark a hearing date to reconsider the original plea agreement.

Because of that, Mr. Cantrell has not received his $1,800 back yet.

    This judge's suspension calls into question the decisions he has made from the bench during the period of time he allowed his legal education to lapse. This is the second judge to be suspended by the Supreme Court in Aiken County over the last 12 months. Who is the State Senator who nominated him for this position?

    Court suspends Aiken magistrate An Aiken County magistrate was suspended from his position indefinitely last week by the Supreme Court of South Carolina. Magistrate Patrick Dorn Sullivan, who has been a judge in the County for the last five years, was one of seven judges across the state suspended for failure to comply with continuing legal education requirements by the court in an order signed on Sept. 7. Aiken County Chief Magistrate Roger Edmonds said that they are working to get the matter resolved as soon as possible.

    Anybody ever thought to order a psychiatric evaluation on this fellow? More than 100 goats living in the house while he lives in a car should tip somebody off that his elevator ain't going to the top floor.
