South Carolina Criminal Laws

While South Carolinians are some of the friendliest people in the country, the state also ranks high on the list of violent crime. South Carolina’s criminal laws cover unlawful conduct ranging from the standard physical crimes like murder, kidnapping, and theft to more complicated crimes like conspiracy, tax evasion, and computer crime. Palmetto State criminal statutes also prohibit drug possession, manufacture, and trafficking, and have consumer protection laws that can prosecute pyramid schemes, telemarketers, and identity thieves. The links below provide state-specific laws on a wide range of crimes, including assault, theft, DUI, and drug crimes.
