Law Office of Mo Abusaft Criminal Defense Practice Areas

Our criminal defense lawyer has experience helping clients with felony and misdemeanor charges in South Carolina, such as:

Drug Trafficking, Distribution, and Possession

Our attorney has defended many clients against federal and state drug offenses, including the following:

  • Possession
  • Cultivation or manufacture
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Distribution or trafficking (the manufacture, import, export, or sale of illegal substances)

In South Carolina, if you are caught with more than four grams of heroin, ten pounds of marijuana, or ten grams of cocaine, you can be charged with drug trafficking, a crime that can be processed on both the state and federal levels. South Carolina law enforcement does not have to prove that you had an intent to sell the drugs. 

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes refer to everything from battery and domestic violence to homicides and sex crimes. 

Assault and Battery

You can be charged with assault and battery if you injure (or attempt to injure) someone else. You can also be charged if you cause someone to fear that you will assault them. 

There are four different levels of assault and battery charges: Assault and battery in the third degree is a misdemeanor that involves injuring or attempting to injure someone with the present ability to do so. 

Assault and battery in the second degree is another misdemeanor, and it involves injuring another person and causing moderate bodily harm; it also covers non-consensual touching of a person’s private parts. 

Assault and battery in the first degree is a felony offense in which a person injures another and causes great bodily harm; it also covers injuring someone during the commission of a theft, burglary, kidnapping, or other crime. 

Lastly, assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature is a felony offense in which a person injures another significantly enough that death is possible. 

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence occurs when someone threatens or causes harm to a member of their family or household. Being convicted of domestic violence can result in fines and imprisonment in South Carolina.


Homicide is a felony offense whose charges involve both unintentional and intentional acts that lead to the death of another person. At our firm, we handle cases of the following natures:

  • Murder
  • Involuntary manslaughter 
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Homicide by child abuse

Murder charges can result in sentences that range from a minimum of 30 years to life without parole; the death penalty is also a possible sentence. 

Sexual Offenses

The Law Office of Mo Abusaft also represents sexual violence cases. We can help with charges of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, which involves sexual battery that takes place in any of the following circumstances:

  • During a burglary or robbery
  • Using aggravated force
  • Forcibly kidnapping or confining someone
  • Using a drug or substance to incapacitate someone 

A second-degree sexual offense involves committing sexual battery through the use of aggravated coercion, and third-degree criminal sexual misconduct involves committing sexual battery through force; an act is also deemed a third-degree offense if the alleged victim was incapacitated or physically helpless.
