So Caroline Dojocho Charged With Solicitation to Committ a Felony

From thestate.com article: "The race for sheriff in Oconee County took a bizarre turn Wednesday with the arrest of Republican candidate James Bartee for trying to hire someone to kidnap a retired S.C. circuit judge. Bartee is one of four candidates competing June 12 to be the Republican nominee in November for Oconee County sheriff.
The former Secret Service agent’s qualification for the office was challenged by retired S.C. Circuit Judge James C. Williams Jr. Williams had sued to get Bartee off the ballot, arguing Bartee is not a “certified law enforcement officer” under S.C. law and therefore can't run for sheriff. A court hearing was to have been held Wednesday on the case in Anderson. The hearing was under way when Bartee was arrested by State Law Enforcement Division agents at the courthouse, according to The Independent Mail of Anderson.
Bartee was charged with “solicitation to commit a felony.” According to the arrest warrant, Bartee tried to “encourage and solicit an individual” to kidnap Williams. He allegedly gave that individual money to purchase items needed in the kidnapping. SLED said evidence includes audio of the solicitation."
From the website of Aikido of Lake Keowee: "James Richard Bartee, Jr. is the sensei and director of Aikido of Lake Keowee, LLC. Bartee Sensei is a 5th degree black belt (Godan) in Aikido and a 1st Dan (Shodan Ho) in Muso Jikiden Eishen-ryu Iaijutsu...Bartee Sensei is an honorably retired U.S. Secret Service (USSS) Senior Special Agent. He had the honor to be personally assigned to the duties of protecting President George Bush and his family, President Bill Clinton and his family, presidential candidates, and other visiting head of states."

I know his name from some where. I wonder if he trained with us in DC with ASU.

I have trained there several times at ASU seminars.
Interesting allegations.

Re: So Caroline Dojocho Charged With Solicitation to Committ a Felony

Kidnapping is a life sentence, but murder for hire is usually only 20-40 years. He should've just gone for a hit. What purpose would the kidnapping have served? Keep the guy hostage until he wins the election, then let the guy go and hope nobody figures anything out?
