Federal convictions can often be far more serious

Crime is taken very seriously in South Carolina and officers are extremely dedicated to tracking down offenders and seeing that they are held accountable for their actions. Unfortunately, this can mean that innocent people occasionally come under suspicion as investigators work to get to the bottom of a crime. However, you are considered innocent unless proven guilty beyond any reasonable doubt. So if this happens to you, all is not lost.

Be aware of implication in wire fraud

Working in a position of power in South Carolina is a double-edged sword. While your job may be well-paid and interesting, it can also mean that you come under a lot of scrutiny. If you make any kind of mistake, there may be suspicions that it was a deliberate action intended to benefit yourself or someone close to you. However, no one is infallible, so it is important to be prepared in case you are accused of illegal activity.

When can you claim self-defense?

Being charged with any kind of crime in South Carolina can have serious consequences and violent crimes are no exception. Whether you have been accused of assault, battery or even murder, authorities recognize the importance of identifying the truth behind the incident. If you injured the alleged victim, you may worry that there is no chance of avoiding conviction, but this may not be the case.

Be aware of implied consent laws

Something many drivers in South Carolina are unaware of is the fact that holding a driver's license means you are bound by certain laws. This legislation, often termed as "implied consent," means that you consent to any chemical or field sobriety tests required to determine whether your driving has been impaired by drugs or alcohol.

Man arrested in South Carolina for alleged drug sales

Being investigated in relation with drug crimes is rarely good news. The penalties for any form of drug crime, whether it is possession, distribution or even manufacture of illegal substances are often severe. Even so, many people in South Carolina still turn to drug trafficking in order to make the money they need to survive.
