How I Can Build an Effective Defense

In South Carolina, criminal domestic violence (CDV) usually refers to injury or harm done between family members or threatening or committing violence towards another person living in the home. Depending on the severity of each case, the penalties for conviction include numerous consequences.

This is an outline of the penalties one could face:

  • 1st offense: misdemeanor, fines between $1,000 up to $2,500, and up to 30 days in jail
  • 2nd offense: misdemeanor, fines between $2,500 up to $5,000, and between 30 days to 1 year in jail
  • 3rd offense: felony, imprisonment anywhere between 1 to 5 years

Criminal domestic violence charges are very serious and need to be treated as such. A conviction can have serious long-term consequences for you and impact your ability to secure employment or to purchase and own a gun. No matter why you are being accused of domestic violence, I understand what is on the line for you and will work tirelessly towards securing a positive outcome. I will request the state's evidence against you and begin building your case. If you have been wrongfully accused of criminal domestic violence charges, I will bring to light the false accusations and present your case as lacking in a factual basis. From beginning to end, I will work diligently for you.
