Minor charges can lead to major consequences.

A conviction or bond forfeiture for simple possession of marijuana creates a criminal record and can lead to loss of employment and future job opportunities, educational opportunities, military opportunities, and beyond.

A criminal domestic violence conviction is a serious criminal offense in South Carolina and, under current federal law, would destroy the right of the accused person to own or possess a firearm.

A conviction for a minor’s possession of alcohol or a false I.D. results in an automatic driver’s license suspension.
