Mike Hunt unloaded his 9 mm Ruger on the unarmed guy in the woods with two SLED agents as witnesses. Barbara Morgan took him to trial and struck a jury, so there must have been some compelling evidence against him. The jury strike alone from 150 potential jurors cost taxpayers approximately $3,000. After costing us all that money Barbara Morgan made the decision not to prosecute Mike Hunt which essentially made him a puppet of the solicitor's office. Why do you think we have so much law enforcement corruption in Aiken County?

Mike Hunt acts like a part-time sheriff who we are paying over $93,000 per year who wants to be a full-time firefighter in Clearwater. This criminal should be charged with misconduct in office, obstruction of justice and misuse of county government property.

All false arrest charges against Jeff Nation, Mike Toole, Jim Bouknight and Stephanie Kirkland were dropped/dismissed too. Mike Hunt is an SOB and we need to get rid of his sorry a@@ along with his so-called incompetent command staff starting with dumb a## Dewayne Courtney. What comes around goes around you bunch of low-life pieces of sh$$

Former Solicitor Barbara Morgan stated in the true bill indictment that Mike Hunt killed Thomas Joel Lewis willfully and with malice aforethought against the laws of the State of South Carolina after unloading his Ruger 9mm pistol on him in the woods. Aiken County has the distinction of being the only county in South Carolina with a criminal sheriff who has been indicted for murder.

you do realize it was disposed without prosecution so he is not a criminal. Indicted does not mean guilty

They called Mike Toole, Stephanie Kirkland, as well a many others in Aiken were characterized as criminals upon their arrest and/or indictment, but have never been found guilty by a jury of their peers for their respective alleged CRIMINAL offenses. There is no difference with Mike Hunt ust because he's a sheriff. As former Solicitor Barbara Morgan stated, "that Michael Hunt did in Aiken County...felonlously, wilfully and with malice aforethought, KILL on Thomas Joel Lewis a/k/a Thomas Poindexter by means of SHOOTING him with a Ruger 9mm pistol and that the said VICTIM died as a proximate result thereof." Further the Aiken Grand Jury, a group of 18 citizens of his peers, found probable cause to directly indict our current sheriff, Mike Hunt. Just because as you say he was not prosecuted doesn't mean that he's innocent of murder, just that a jury as not yet found him guilty. There is no statute of limitations for murder.

Why don't you tell us who else in Aiken County is NOT GUILTY as your innocent lilly white dumb a$$ sheriff who is alleged to have obstructed justice on numerous occasions during his rein over Aiken County? This SOB sheriff is nothing more than a low-life scum bag who cannot be trusted at any time by anyone. He is known thoughout South Carolina for turning his back on his entire narcotics unit by firing them and throwing them and their entire families under the bus just to make himself LOOK good.

Why are we still paying the guy close to $100,000 per year while he spends most of his time during the day down at the Clearwater Fire Department? Isn't this defrauding Aiken Count taxpayers when he should be serving us as a full-time sheriff?

We are paying for way too many sheriff deputy cars in Aiken. Why are there so many deputy cars in Aiken? The crime rate can't be that high.

The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is overstaffed for the number of crimes committed in our county. We are paying somewhere between $5,000 to $7,500 per arrest warrant each day in Aiken County to fund the sheriff's office if you look at our daily cost to operate the sheriff's office compared to the number of arrest they make in the unincorporated areas of Aiken County (excluding the arrests made by city and town law enforcement - Aiken, North Augusta, Burnettetown, Salley, Wagener, Perry, New Ellenton, and Jackson). It shouldn't cost us over $10,0000,000 per year just to operate the Aiken County Sheriff's Office excluding the detention center. On average they are making less than five (5) arrest per day in Aiken County and most of them are not prosecuted by the solicitor's office because they are make on a knee jerk without the required evidence or all elements of the crime being present. They act like a bunch of cowboys being managed by redneck low-life criminal murderer Mike Hunt.

Aiken Sheriff Mike Hunt Background Includes Indictment for Murder

Former Solicitor Barbara Morgan stated, "that Michael Hunt did in Aiken County...felonlously, wilfully and with malice aforethought, KILL one Thomas Joel Lewis a/k/a Thomas Poindexter by means of SHOOTING him with a Ruger 9mm pistol and that the said VICTIM died as a proximate result thereof." Further the Aiken Grand Jury, a group of 18 citizens of his peers, found probable cause to directly indict Aiken's current sheriff, Mike Hunt. Probable cause means that it's more probable than not that this criminal committed murder. Just because he was not prosecuted doesn't mean that he's innocent of murder, just that a jury has not yet found him guilty. There is no statute of limitations for murder in South Carolina.
