Sentencing in South Carolina felony DUI case

When an individual makes the decision to drink and drive, he or she creates a high level of risk for each and every person encountered while on the road.

Traffic stop leads to serious DUI charges

When South Carolina residents choose to have a few drinks, the choices that follow can have life-altering consequences. One of the most dangerous acts that anyone can undertake is attempting to drive a vehicle after drinking. Alcohol often leads to poor judgment, and the inability to accurately measure levels of risk. This leads many otherwise rational and responsible individuals to make the decision to get behind the wheel of a car or truck. The result is often DUI charges.

Will new law cause more people refuse to take a breath test?

Prior to Oct. 1, the cost of a DUI conviction took a toll on an individual's financial, personal and professional life. Now, those costs could go up.  A new DUI law went into effect in South Carolina requiring certain people convicted of drunk driving to use an ignition interlock device.  Some officials are concerned that this will mean that more people will refuse to take a breath test when they are suspected of driving under the influence. 

South Carolina coach charged with DUI

Even before the invention and the popularity of the cell phone, there were many distractions in a vehicle. Some people are distracted simply by the conversations of other people going on around them. Such distractions could potentially lead to erratic behavior that could even cause some people to assume the driver is under the influence of alcohol. It is unclear if this could be the case after a woman in South Carolina was arrested and charged with DUI.
