What is a Violent Crime?
A violent crime is one in which a person inflicts, or threatens to inflict, bodily harm on another. Notably, the victim need not suffer actual harm for you to be charged with a violent crime. In any event, violent crimes in South Carolina are considered felonies, vigorously prosecuted, and harshly penalized. A conviction for a violent offense can result in a prison sentence, fines, and probation.
Many violent crimes are classified as serious crimes that fall under the state’s three-strikes law, which harshly punishes repeat offenders. Ultimately, being a convicted violent felon means that you will lose the right to vote and possess a weapon and may be denied employment and housing opportunities. With so much at stake, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner, fighting for your rights.
