Teen killed, 2 injured in fatal Richland County crash

Reports from the South Carolina Highway Patrol show that an 18-year-old man is accused of killing his 16-year-old brother in an alcohol-related car accident. The teen is facing drunk driving charges in connection with the underage drinking accident, which occurred during the early-morning hours of May 24.

S.C. rep blames rock in shoe for DUI charges

South Carolina State Representative Ted Vick is facing his second drunk-driving charge in less than a year after he was pulled over on May 14. The man's attorney argues that his client was walking in an erratic manner because he had a rock in his shoe, not because he was intoxicated. Authorities allege that they saw the man stumbling to his car as he walked in a Columbia parking garage.

York driver gets eight years for fatal DUI

A young man from York, South Carolina, was sentenced to an eight-year prison term in connection with a fatal accident caused by intoxicated driving. The man mounted a criminal defense against the accusations by pleading guilty. The 20-year-old was accused of killing his girlfriend when he got behind the wheel after smoking marijuana and drinking. The accident also injured two other victims.

Woman gets decreased sentence for drug charges

A South Carolina woman has pleaded guilty to drug charges after authorities accused her of trafficking the prescription drug oxycodone. The woman, age 46, was arrested on the felony charges on April 1 after she attempted to sell the drugs to an undercover agent in Maine. The woman was sentenced to three years' prison time, but the majority of her sentence was suspended; she will only be required to spend 91 days in lockup. She will then serve two years' probation. The woman will also be subject to a modest $400 fine.

Columbia lawmakers increase ticket fines

In light of recent budget constraints, moves by city legislators in Columbia, South Carolina, have prohibited traffic ticket offenders from enjoying reduced fines simply because they plead guilty. New traffic ticket rules are designed to pad the municipality's coffers by inflicting the full value of most charges, increasing revenue by nearly a half a million dollars. Criminal defense in connection with these minor violations has thus changed dramatically, according to legal experts.
