Man arrested in connection with shooting

In South Carolina, it is a well-known fact that criminal charges can dramatically affect your life, especially if you are young. A conviction does even more damage, leaving a permanent mark on your record and affecting your chances of employment, college and even getting a loan. As a result, if you have been charged with a crime, it is important to plan your next steps carefully. This can be the difference between a guilty verdict and walking free after your trial.

Can an insanity plea spare you from conviction?

Every year in South Carolina, innumerable people go through the criminal justice system. Some have been accused of misdemeanors while others face more serious charges. Many are even charged with federal offenses, which can carry particularly hefty penalties. Being convicted of a crime of this nature can severely impact your future, so the first thing you will need to do is begin to plan your defense.

An excessive BAC may be it all takes to be charged

You may know your limits, but if they are above the legal level of 0.08 percent, you could still get into trouble, no matter how confident you are behind the wheel. A single mistake on the part of any road user can result in an accident. However, if you are involved in that accident and also found to be over the limit, you could face serious consequences even if you did not cause the crash.

White collar charges can severely affect your future

In South Carolina, it is no secret that a criminal conviction can be extremely detrimental to your future prospects and even have an effect on your current employment. This is especially the case if you are in a position of great responsibility as the damage to your reputation could result in you being dismissed. Even during the investigative process, you could be suspended until the authorities have gotten to the bottom of the case.
