Multiple sex crime charges dropped against Darlington man

People charged with a sex crime in South Carolina are in danger of having the rest of their lives compromised by a conviction. In addition to jail time, the sex offender registry can cause troubles for years to come. For this reason, it is important to build a strong criminal defense and attempt to clear one's name. South Carolina, like all states in the U.S., has its own policies for handling those suspected of sex crimes. Understanding state law and the legal process for a particular criminal charge is the first step toward avoiding prison and sex-offender registration.

South Carolina seeking stricter drunk driving penalties

Across the country, lawmakers and law enforcement officials are cracking down on drunk driving. The legal limit in South Carolina is 0.08 percent, and driving under the influence with a blood-alcohol content above that amount can result in an arrest and criminal charges. Legislators in the state are also considering amending the current law to make it more difficult for a person to get behind the wheel after a first DUI offense.

Drug trafficking and driving under the influence can carry harsh penalties in South Carolina. When paired with other charges, a conviction for driving under the influence or drug sales has the potential to result in a prison sentence, fines and other punishment that can alter a person's life. For this reason, suspects need to skillfully address charges and attempt to minimize a sentence or have the charges dropped to protect their future.

For South Carolina residents, the Internet is a useful way to conduct business, stay in touch with friends and family, and even enjoy games and videos. However, all Internet activity conducted on a computer can be monitored, and some pursuits are illegal and punishable under South Carolina law and even federal law. These Internet crimes can vary broadly, from cyber terrorism to phishing scams to computer fraud. Police can use all types of Internet activity to press criminal charges.
