South Carolina couple facing drug charges after traffic stop

Police in South Carolina say that a gift card concealed in a woman's brassiere led to the discovery of 14 grams of methamphetamine during a routine traffic stop in the early morning hours of Dec. 13. A 35-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man were taken into custody in connection with the drugs. The two Lancaster County residents were both transported to the York County Detention Center according to media reports. The man is charged with trafficking methamphetamine and is being held on a $40,000 bond. The woman faces methamphetamine possession and trafficking charges and is being held on a $65,000 bond.

Growing population of felons prompts criminal justice reforms

People in South Carolina and elsewhere face lifelong consequences when authorities convict them of felonies. Even if their sentences apply probation instead of prison time, the people experience ongoing problems with obtaining work and housing. In some states, felony records cling to 10 to 15 percent of the adult population. This burgeoning felon population nationwide has inspired some states to look at ways of reducing felony convictions after increases over the past decades caused by the reclassification of some crimes from misdemeanors to felonies.
