  1. Not enough evidence, but he pleads guilty of a lesser charge? Why plead guilty if they can’t produce enough evidence? Just watch the criminal cases that will just be pleaded out and the criminals will be back on the streets to commit more crimes! Then you question why Columbia County wanted out of the judicial district? Someone needs to question why these cases are not being heard and why these cases are being tried in back rooms and agreed to by the Judges!

  2. So he accidentally shot him the first time.,what was the excuse for shooting him in the jaw while he was laying in the ground the second time? Poor Augusta..your judicial system is now being held hostage by a liberal DA that basically sucks..

  3. While in prison they should watch him like a hawk watching a mouse. Throw the damn book at him for ANY criminal transgression he commits while incarcerated. Keep him as long as possible because this dude is bad news. When he gets out, he will be back at it again. Guaranteed.
