Police planned DUI crackdown for St. Patrick?s day

South Carolinians enjoy engaging in all sorts of public festivities. Such gatherings always provide the opportunity to share time with old friends and meet new friends. In such times, there is nothing wrong with having a drink or two to make the celebration that much more fun. In fact, in the case of St. Patrick's Day, having a pint or two of green beer is part of the revelry.And while St. Patrick's day has come and gone for another year, some people may still be feeling the effects of having been part of the party. This is because South Carolina law enforcement officials enacted a plan to crack down on drunk driving. State troopers and police stated that they would be on the lookout for those driving under the influence during the holiday.

Drugged driving can have serious consequences

It is no secret in South Carolina that being caught with illegal drugs can have severe legal repercussions. As such, it is hardly surprising that if you are found driving while under the influence of these drugs, you could also face criminal charges. However, something that not everyone realizes is that even prescription drugs can get you into trouble if they are in your system at the time that you are stopped.

How is drug possession proven?

In South Carolina, being charged with a drug-related offense is a serious matter. If convicted, you could lose your job, struggle to find future employment or even have your housing options limited. Aside from that, you could be fined, sent to prison or even lose any professional licenses you might hold. In short, a drug conviction can dramatically alter your life.

Great responsibility can lead to serious accusations

Any form of criminal charge can change your life indefinitely. However, as many residents of South Carolina are aware, federal charges can be even more severe. In many cases they carry greater fines, longer sentences and harsher repercussions. However, something that not everyone realizes is that it is not only individuals that can be charged with federal crimes. Entire firms can even be charged under certain circumstances.
