Consequences of a Criminal Charge in South Carolina

All South Carolina criminal convictions carry the potential for some jail time, with maximum sentences beginning at one year in jail for Class C misdemeanors and reaching thirty years in prison for a Class A felony. Other consequences may include fines, probation, community service, court costs, and restitution to the victim of the crime.  

Depending on the type of criminal charge, receiving a felony conviction may also lead to loss of several rights such as loss of voting rights, loss of gun rights, loss of driving privileges, and loss of government benefits, including food stamps and public housing. A misdemeanor or felony conviction will also show up on background checks for employers, property managers, and colleges, which may make life following a conviction difficult.
