Understanding what makes a crime a felony

Felonies are the most serious crimes in a classification system that can include infractions, misdemeanors and felonies. In South Carolina, a felony conviction can result in fines or prison time of five years or more. Many crimes classed as felony offenses are violent although some are not. Generally, felonies are crimes that are considered morally offensive to the community.

Violence against women very high in South Carolina

According to research out of the Violence Poverty Center, South Carolina was once again named one of the highest ranked states for incidences of violence against women in 2016. During that year, 48 women were murdered by men, placing the state in the top 10 for that particular category. Nationwide, black females were disproportionately affected by this type of violence. Firearms were the most commonly used weapon to commit these murders.
