Supreme Court to rule on breathalyzer testing

Refusing a breathalyzer test from a police officer may not be considered a crime in South Carolina; however, more and more states are adding such regulations to their law books. This has led the U.S. Supreme Court to hear cases coming out of Minnesota and North Dakota that involve disputes about whether people who refuse breathalyzer testing when a DUI is suspected may be charged with a crime.

Felonies vs. misdemeanors in South Carolina

When an individual is charged with a crime, the offense may be labeled as a misdemeanor or a felony. A misdemeanor is generally considered a less serious offense than a felony, and the penalty for a conviction on such a charge is up to a year in jail. Those who are convicted of a misdemeanor will sometimes serve their sentences in a city or county jail as opposed to a high security prison.
