SLED Investigation

Augusta, GA

#1 Oct 13, 2007
The final member of the recently disbanded narcotics unit at Aiken County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) submitted his resignation on Wednesday, October 10, 2007. Thirty eight year old Brian Owens was suspended late last week when four other investigators were terminated for misconduct (sexual, misuse of government property, drinking and driving a sheriff's car, etc.). Former investigator Brian Owens worked for the ACSO from October 18, 2002 until October 10, 2007. ACSO would not comment on the reason for his suspension.

Wonder if any of the five former deputies in our narcotics unit would ever do this?

An Atlantic Beach, South Carolina, police officer is off the job after finding himself on the wrong side of the law. Terrance Wiggins, 45, has been arrested and charged with misconduct in office. The arrest comes after an investigation by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, revealing Wiggins had propositioned an unknown woman for sex. In exchange, the arrest warrant says, he would turn a blind eye to cocaine possession. The warrant goes on to say, that after engaging in sexual acts, Wiggins returned the cocaine based substance to the woman, whose name is not being released. The report also reveals this happened while Wiggins was on duty. Atlantic Beach's acting police chief, Paul Rizzo, said these allegations surfaced in early October - that's when he turned the case over to SLED.
Justice for Jason

Augusta, GA

#3 Nov 19, 2007 ...

It's been seven years since the Jason Cook's brutal murder and the murderer still has not been brought to trial. Solicitor Barbara Morgan knows who killed him, but since he's black and his parents live in West Columbia, no trial date has ever been set. The USC-Aiken student's dead body was shot and dumped on an Aiken County dirt road. Channel 19 news covered this case last week and aired the story interviewing both Jason's parents and the 2nd Judical Solicitor who is continuing to sit on this case
