South Carolina to require warrants for domestic violence arrests?

Fights between two people in a relationship have the potential to get heated quickly. In these cases, there are often few bystanders around to back up allegations of domestic violence. This can lead to false accusations and false arrests based on the testimony of someone who has a wish to harm the other party. Due to the serious penalties associated with a conviction for domestic violence, protections must be in place to ensure people are not being falsely accused. One South Carolina man and his criminal defense team recently won a court case, which will help ensure domestic violence arrests and charges are being applied correctly.

Those charged with a DUI will face consequences for their actions, but with the right help, these consequences may be mitigated.
