How to appeal a DUI conviction

Individuals who have been found guilty of a DUI in South Carolina or any other state can appeal their convictions. Appeals may be based on procedural issues or substantive issues such as asking for evidence to be suppressed. It's important to remember that an appellate court will not consider any new evidence when making its ruling. Instead, it will simply look at the record from the lower court to determine if any errors were made.

What factors impact a criminal sentence handed down by the court?

A person who is convicted of a crime will have to go through the sentencing phase of their case. This is when the court lets them know what consequences they face because of the conviction. Contrary to what many people think, there are several factors that come into the picture when the court determines what's appropriate for a specific case.

South Carolina man sentenced on gun and drug charges

A South Carolina man was sentenced to spend 242 months in a federal prison to be followed by 72 months of supervised release on Jan. 6. A jury found the man guilty of possessing illegal drugs with the intent to distribute and possessing a gun while being a convicted felon after a trial lasting two days. The man was originally taken into custody by the Florence County Sheriff's Office. The Drug Enforcement Administration was called in because of the amount of drugs involved.
