South Carolina law provides for enhanced punishment for subsequent convictions of a number of different crimes. Driving, drug, and Property crimes can be enhanced by the State if you have a previous conviction. Enhanced charges (2nd, 3rd offense) carry far lengthier terms of imprisonment. If you have been charged with DUI, DUS, Drug Possession, Shoplifting, or other similar crimes, it is important to have an experienced attorney working for you to minimize the negative implications of such a conviction going forward.
