Police waste resources with sobriety checkpoints

A recent source reports that sobriety checkpoints, which sift the roads of drivers that have had too much to drink, can cost more than $10,000 to set up. Despite hefty costs, they are not very efficient. In fact, sources say that these stops may actually distract officers from finding risky drivers. Many South Carolina motorists know that authorities will do whatever they can to prevent motorists from driving under the influence (DUI). However, at what expense should enforcement use such unsuccessful measures?

South Carolina man faces $356,000 fraud case

If convicted of a crime, one faces many consequences. Many sentences include hefty fines and jail time. Furthermore, a conviction on your record may affect your job prospects or your reputation in your local community. For this reason, if you are facing criminal charges, it is imperative that you know what to expect. A local story discusses a man who has been charged with two counts of breach of trust and one count of forgery. This man may experience many of these consequences if he is found guilty of these crimes.
