To many people, "innocent until proven guilty" may be just a cliché. However, people facing serious criminal allegations know this is the difference between suffering long-term consequences and living a free and normal life. The same phrase was also recently uttered by the defense attorneys of a South Carolina couple who have been implicated in a murder case.
Any criminal allegations can weigh heavily on the shoulders of an accused. Accusations, especially those that are sexual in nature and involve a child, can definitely add to the weight. The recent case of a South Carolina man dealing with a previous criminal charge and now facing another, more damaging, charge illustrates how serious legal problems can become.
The Internet plays an important role on the daily lives of South Carolina residents through both social media and online transactions. Because of this, many criminals are now using the Internet to commit fraudulent acts against potential victims. Internet crimes usually involve virus attacks, fraud, hacking and sex-related computer crimes. These crimes can be prosecuted in state or federal courts, depending on the nature of the offense.
