SLED Agent Injured In Shooting
CAYCE (AP) — Tenants who tried to watch a four-hour armed standoff at an apartment complex endangered themselves and made it harder for police to respond to the situation, authorities say.
“It’s a sad commentary on our society that citizens are not only used to this violence, but they’re attracted to it,’’ said Robert Stewart, the State Law Enforcement Division chief.
Bond was set at $140,000 Wednes
day for Samuel Patterson, 36, of Cayce. Patterson is charged with 14 criminal counts Wednesday after he shot a SLED officer during the standoff Tuesday night.
SLED officer Stacy Drakeford, 27, was released Wednesday from a local hospital after being treated for minor wounds in the leg, arm and hand. No other injuries were reported.
One of the charges against Patterson, 36, of Cayce, is assault and
battery with intent to kill stemming from a domestic dispute that led to the standoff, said Cayce Police Chief A G. Dantzler. Other charges include six counts of trying to kill four SLED agents and twice trying to stab the mother of Patterson’s roommate, Dantzler said.
Patterson, a former Army infantryman, has several prior convictions for assault, WIS-TV of Columbia reported.
FBI Begins Investigating Former Magistrate’s Case
MYRTLE BEACH (AP) - The FBI has begun investigating allegations former Magistrate Archie Lee violated civil rights in the molestation of 15 women.
The FBI’s investigation is on behalf of the U.S. Justice Department, said Mark Sakaley, a Justice Department spokesman. He wouldn’t comment further. The FBI wouldn’t comment, The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported today.
Two of Lee’s victims said the FBI began interviewing about two weeks ago, the newspaper reported.
“I think it’s great,’’ Shari Palmer said. “They’re saying there is something wrong being done in Horry County and we need to straighten it out.”
Two of the alleged victims wrote the Justice Department a letter after they and others were angered by the outcome of Lee’s case in state court.
Lee, 65, had faced up to 35 years in prison after pleading no contest in March to molesting 15 women who had come to his office when he was an Horry County magistrate.
Circuit Judge Edward Cot-tingham sentenced Lee to 400 hours of public service and fined him $500. Cottingham cited Lee’s age and his 66-year-old invalid wife in deciding to keep the former magistrate out of prison.
Lee has been performing his public service by working at the Horry County public defender’s office.
Campbell Won’t Follow Lead
COLUMBIA (AP) - As long as the Legislature wants it that way, the Confederate battle flag will remain atop the South Carolina Statehouse, no matter what another state does, Gov. Carroll Campbell says.
“It’s the samp thing as if I wanted to put a picture up in the Statehouse. rd have to get the General Assembly’s permission,” Campbell said. “The flag flies at the order of the Legislature, and it will come down at the order of the Legislature. ”
Alabama Gov. Jim Folsom said last week that the battle flag, which was removed from atop the Alabama Statehouse during renovations, would not be flown again there.
South Carolina lawmakers put the battle flag atop the Statehouse in 1961, saying they wanted to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the Civil War.
Black lawmakers say the flag offends them because it represents a nation that held slaves and because hate groups use it as a symbol.
