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. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
