    Believe it or not, crossing state borders is often like crossing into a foreign country from a legal standpoint- the laws on some things are totally different. SC has no prayer for judgment. If you're up for trial next week, the best thing to do is see if you can find a lawyer in Rock Hill to help you right now.

    Yes. This is a serious accusation that could get you prison time if you're convicted. You can't risk the consequences of just hoping the police will realize they made a mistake. The other person's word can get you convicted if the jury believes them- and they already got the police to believe them. .You need a trained professional on your side who can present your defense convincingly to protect your innocence.

    You might delay a DUI conviction license suspension for 60 days if you appeal it and get a certificate from the DMV allowing you to drive. But it's only for 60 days. Since you appealed the DUI conviction, have your lawyer look into it. If you don't have one, you should get one who's experienced in DUI/DUS defense. DUIs are very complex to appeal. DUS laws are complex, too. And your case involves both. You should look into appealing the DUS conviction or asking for a new trial, if you have time-...

    This is a serious charge. He needs a lawyer. A lawyer can file a motion to get all the evidence in the case- whether it helps or hurts his client. Then the case can be evaluated for the best defenses possible. It may be there's no evidence against your friend, but something convinced a magistrate to sign an arrest warrant on him. He needs a lawyer experienced in these cases to help him get to the bottom of it and figure out the best thing to protect him legally.

    The most important thing is to make sure each DMV cleans up your driving record. Find out what the SC DMV will need by going to the local office . You're doing the right thing getting certified court documents.

    DUI 2d offenses in SC are ineligible for DL. The offense level is based on DMV records and can include NC convictions. It could be this is a SC first offense, since 2d offense must basically occur within 10 years of first arrest. If so, you might get a provisional if you can clear up the DUS. Go to the DMV and get a certified driving record PLUS a list of what you need to get reinstated. You should do the same in NC to be sure you clear any NC suspension causing a SC suspension. See if you can...

    I agree with Bradford Andrews, and I'd also tell any potential employer who judges you about these charges that you HAVE escaped your past, since you haven't gotten any charges since. The only difference between you and some other people, possibly including the guy who's interviewing you, is bad luck- you got arrested for acting your age and we didn't.

    You should be OK. SC law provides that folks who complete PTI and have their record expunged are legally the same as if they never got arrested. Talk to the folks at PTI about it.

    They'll send a check, probably with a release- a legal document that releases them from all liability for the accident, no matter what. Be prepared for it to take longer than you want, but congrats on getting this behind you!
